TENNESSEE BORDER
(Jimmy Work)
RED FOLEY (DECCA 46151, 1949)

Her eyes were blue, her hair was auburn
Her smile was like an angel dear
She was her daddy's only daughter
On the Tennessee border

[Chorus]
One night I took a ride just across the line
I picked her up in a pick-up truck
And she broke this heart of mine
Her mother said no, she's my only daughter
But we got married on the Tennessee border

The roses were bloomin' on the border
The moon was shining from above
I fell in love the night I saw her
On the Tennessee border

[Chorus]
