Past the big south fork where the last free waters flow
Beyond the lowly valley with the golden river stones
In the iron mountains where the hills hide in the smoke
The place I keep my heart, and the place I call my home

Though she's far away
I can hear her whisper flowin’ softly through the swayin' summer trees
And I'm okay
‘Long as I can feel her breathin' gently on the misty mountain breeze

My sweet lady,
Tennessee

Miles past the forest where the huntin’ black bear roams
Somewhere in the hollow where the yellow lilacs grow
Beyond the quiet basin with the little wooden boats
The place I keep my heart, and the place I call my home

Though she's far away
I can hear her whisper flowin’ softly through the swayin' summer trees
And I'm okay
‘Long as I can feel her breathin' gently on the misty mountain breeze

My sweet lady,
Tennessee

Though she's far away
I can hear her whisper flowin’ softly through the swayin' summer trees
And I'm okay
‘Long as I can feel her breathin' gently on the misty mountain breeze

My sweet lady,
Tennessee
