Tennessee Rose
recorded by Emmylou Harris
written by Karen Brooks and Hank DeVito


Well it's a sweet dream
That keeps me close to you dear
And it's a sad thing
That we're apart I'm blue dear
And there are times now
   C7        F         Dm
I thank the heavens up above
     F            G7         C
When I'm with the one that I love
Now there are diamonds
That some may long to see
And they may shine
But not bright enough for me
I wouldn't take no
C7        F               Dm
The whole world dipped in gold
      F             G7        C
For a night with my Tennessee Rose
Am                       C
Take this love that I am giving
         Am        F       G7
For it's truly the lasting kind
    Am             C
The gift I hold is believing
     Am       G7        C
That you will always be mine
Repeat last
