Tennessee 1949
Update 2002-09-14

I wonder if it's rainin' in the mountains
I wonder how the old town looks today
And if the church is there beside the river
Could I go back and find where mama lay

Does life still go to sleep just after sunset
And the berries still as big on the vine?
And do old men sit and talk about the old days
The way they did in nineteen-forty-nine

    And oh oh oh, how I'd like to be
    Back in the hills of Tennessee
    And oh oh oh, it would be so fine
    If I could just go back to nineteen-forty-nine

I wonder, if by chance, they might remember
A teenage boy, so wild and fancy free
Who always loved guitars and country music
If I went back, would they remember me

I wonder what became of Catherine Akers
The girl that broke my heart at seventeen
I barely can remember what she looks like
30 years ago she was my dream

   * Refrain

For 30 years, I searched the wild world over
For what I don't recall and didn't find
But now I'm searchin' pictures in my memory
For Tennessee in nineteen-forty-nine

   * Refrain

If I could just go back to nineteen-forty-nine
