My little home in Tennessee

Every night I'm dreaming of my little home
Down among the hills of Tennessee
And I'm alway lonely, longing to return
To the place that means the world to me

   Just a little shack, roof all turning black
   Still it is the only place for me
   Songbirds always singing 'round the cabin door

I can see my mother standing by the gate
As I drove the old horse up the lane
She would never scold me when I came home late
How I wish I'd never caused her pain

   With her tender smile, beaming all the while
   No-one could be half as kind to me
   Now she's gone to heaven, and she'll never return
   To that little home in Tennessee

I can still remember many years ago
When my sweetheart wandeared by my side
Down among the mountains where wild flowers grow
There she promised she would be my bride

   Then another man won her heart and hand
   Then I knew how much she'd meant to me
   I was broken-hearted and I went away
   From my little home in Tennessee
