 INTRO:
G



 VERSE 1:
C            D               G
  I've seen rocky mountains and great lakes
C          D                  G
  Stood beneath the redwood tree
C          D        G  G/F#  Em
  But wherever I go my heart aches
C         D                 G    G/F#
  For a place called Tennessee



 CHORUS 1:
  Em  C  G         D
  Oh,      I wanna be
              C                 G            C               D
  Where the whiskey flows like wine and the meth labs are devine
  Em  C  G           D
  Oh,      come with me
           C               G             C                    D
  Cotton grows as tall as oaks and it's picked by poor black folks
N/C             G
  That's Tennessee



 VERSE 2:
C          D                   G
  It's a place where dualling banjos play
C            D                  G
  Where the mountain folk run free
C            D                  G  G/F# Em
  Where the kids can all spell 'K   K   K'
C               D          G    G/F#
  But can not spell Tennessee



 CHORUS 2:
  Em  C  G         D
  Oh,      I wanna be
             C              G            C            D
  Where the Hatchie river flows and the kids have 13 toes
  Em  C  G           D
  Oh,      come with me
             C                 G                 C            D
  Where the hotdogs are deep fried - that's the reason Elvis died
N/C        G
  In Tennessee



 BRIDGE:
C              D              G
  Cold winds whisper and the willows weep
C             D                  G
  Let some romantic dream come true
C              D              G  G/F#  Em
  Where that special feeling way down deep
C            D               G    G/F#
  When your sister says, "I do"



 CHORUS 3:
  Em  C  G         D
  Oh,      I wanna be
            C                   G                   C                 D
  Where the baptist preachers shout that if you're gay, you best get out
  Em  C  G           D
  Oh,      come with me
         C                  G             C             D
  Where hospitality's the thing, just as Martin Luther King
N/C              G
  Shot in Tennessee



 INTERLUDE:
C - D - G - G (X2)
C - D - G - G/F# - Em
C - D - G - G



 CHORUS 4:
  Em  C  G          D
  Oh,      I wanna see
            C            G                C                 D
  Mountain Dew in every cup, and all the dentists just gave up
  Em  C  G           D
  Oh,      come with me
          C                G                       C            D
  In my flat-bed pick-up truck; that's where the classy ladies fuck
N/C         C
  In Tennessee


 OUTRO:
  C             G
  Oh, in Tennessee
