Now onto the song 

A A A A A A A A

[Verse 1]

A                               A
Back about eighteen and twenty-five
G                              G
I left Tennessee very much alive
A                                             A
I never would've made it through the Arkansas mud
A                              E         A
If I hadn't been riding on the Tennessee Stud

[Verse 2]

A                                      A
Had some trouble with my sweetheart's Pa
G                                 G
One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
A                              A
I wrote a letter to my Uncle Bud
A                      E         A 
And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud

[Chorus]

A                      G        A
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
A                 D          C           E      Em E
The color of the sun and his eyes were green
A                                  A
He had the nerve and he had the blood
A                            E         A
There never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

[Verse 3]

A                              A
Rode right down into no man's land
G                                   G
Across that river called the Rio Grande
A                                   A 
Raced my horse with the Spaniard's foe
A                       E          A
Got me a skin full of silver and gold

[Verse 4]

A                                 A
Me and the gambler, we couldn't agree
G                              G
We got in a fight over Tennessee 
A                                   A
Pulled our guns and he fell with a thud
A                     E         A
And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud

[Chorus]

A                      G        A
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
A                 D          C           E      Em E
The color of the sun and his eyes were green
A                                  A
He had the nerve and he had the blood
A                            E         A
There never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

[Verse 5]

A                             A
Rode right back across Arkansas
G                                       G
I whipped her brother and I whipped her Pa
A                                   A
I found that girl with the golden hair
A                   E         A
She was riding on a Tennessee Mare

[Verse 6]

A                                A
Purty little baby on the cabin floor
G                                   G
Little horse colt playing round the door
A                                 A
I loved the girl with the golden hair
A                                E         A
And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare

[Chorus]

A                      G        A
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
A                 D          C           E      Em E
The color of the sun and his eyes were green
A                                  A
He had the nerve and he had the blood
A                            E         A
There never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

[Outro]

A A A A G G A D D C C E E A
