The Girl I Left In Sunny Tennessee
Recorded by Bill Clifton

On one morning bright and clear
My old folks and I drew near
D7 G
Just a village down in sunny Tennessee

I'd been speeding on the train
That would bring me back again
D7 G
To that girl I left in sunny Tennessee

I could hear those voices singing as she bid farewell to me
Em A7 D7
Far across the fields of cotton my old homestead I could see
As the moon rose in its glory then I told my saddest story
D7 G
Of that girl I left in sunny Tennessee

Now the train drew up at last old familiar scene's had passed
D7 G
And I kissed my mother at the station door
Then kind friends that gathered round tears on every face I found
D7 G
There I missed the one that I'd been waiting for

Repeat #2

D7 G
I just whispered mother dear where is Mary she's not here
A7 D7
All the world seemed dark and sadness came to me
She just pointed to the spot in that little church yard lot
D7 G
Where my sweetheart sleeps in sunny Tennessee

Repeat #2
