C D7
Now there are folks who like to brag about where they came from
G7 C
But when they start that stuff I let 'em be
But it makes me feel like I wanna brag some
G7 C
To know that I come from the state of Tennessee

Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
As they play it up in Nashville everyday
Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
G7 C
As they play it in that old Hillbilly way

Mister Red Foley came from Kentucky
G7 C
Now Ernest Tubb down in Texas don't you see
But if all you folks out there can remember
G7 C
Mister Eddy Arnold came from Tennessee

repeat #2

They make bombs they say that can blow up our world dear
G7 C
Well a country boy like me I will agree
But if all you folks out there will remember
G7 C
They made the first atomic bomb in Tennessee

repeat #2 x2
