I ask the Lord to grant me
What I have never had,
To meet all my daily needs,
Strength, Health, Joy,
Peace and true Happiness.
In time, I have found all the answers
To my prayers and much more than
What I have asked for.
Oh!! My good Lord!!...
My dreams came true for me,
In the form of living in good old Tennessee.
Dreaming of living in good old Tennessee,
I could see the flocks of songbirds, creeks,
Hills, valleys, mountains and green lands.
I could hear the Country Music singing on my mind,
While I am walking in dreams in good open farms.
The nectar from the blossoms
Grows in all flowers that you´ve sent.
I like nice sunny days,
The gloomy days drag me down,
But You Lord, always uplift my heart then,
When I am down.
Picture youself living in a cozy wooden cabin
In a pristine valley with rolling hills all around.
Yes!! That is my good old Tennessee.
Thank You, Lord!! My good sweet Lord!!
I can now- count all the many blessings,
You´ve granted the dreams for me,
And the showers of shining love
To live in good old Tennessee.
Let me tell you, folks about my best friend Who told me
Old stories about country music and horses in the field.
We watched his old western movies;
He gave me shelter and took care of me.
We spoke about Elvis and our favourite stars.
I can´t go on without saying
My best friend is now dwelling in Eternity afar.
I know he´s watching me when I tell you
Stories of good old Tennessee.
A warm log cabin with a blazy fireplace
In the Great Smoky Mountains,
In the pristine forest with deers and bears all around,
I see myself dreaming of -into my old blues and tunes,
Melodies and the blending of all nature´s sounds.
Sing Refrain again.
