-anyone with tab on this, PLEASE send it to me, or Cowpie.

4/4 time

          A                       E
verse 1:  I was born across the river
                   D                   A
        in the mountains where I call home.
        Lord, times were good there.  Don't know why
                       D      A
        I ever roamed

                        A                        G6
Chorus:  Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
               D                 A
    We get together anytime we can.
    Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
               D                             A
    we play together in Mother Nature's band.

A   A   A   G6   G6   D   D   A

          A                                E
Verse 2:  Me and my woman's done made our plans
                           D      C                    A
         on the Tennessee River, walkin' hand in hand
      G     G#          A                     E
     Gonna raise a family, Lord, settle down
                          D                 A
         where peace and love can still be found.

Repeat Chorus, then increase tempo, and play chords to the chorus on the
fiddle solo.

P.S. in the live version on CD, they do an extra verse in the middle the
lyrics to it are:

This mountain king, 's done left his throne
On the Tennessee River and his mountain home
But I'm goin' back, leavin' today
to my homeland, so far away

Drivin' down to Dixie, wastin' no time
Back to the good life I left behind
Goin' to the river with my fishin' line
I'm on Lookout Mountain about suppertime

(chorus, last verse, etc.)
