Down Home in Tennessee (1)
- I'm so happy, oh, so happy, don't you envy me?
- I leave to-day at three for sunny Tennessee;
- Dad and mother, sis' and brother, waiting for me there
- And at the table, next to Mabel, there's an extra chair.
Down Home in Tennessee (2)
- Back home in Tennessee, just try to picture me
- Right on my mother's knee, she thinks the world of me;
- All I can think of to-night is a field of snowy white,
- Banjo ringing, darkies singing, all this world seems bright.
- The roses round the door makes me love my mother more;
- I'll see my sweetheart Flo, and friends I used to know,
- Why, they'll be right there to meet me, just imagine how they'll greet me
- When I get back, when I get back to my home in Tennessee.
Down Home in Tennessee (3)
- At the station my relations all will be on hand,
- With a Home-town band, the best band in the land;
- Hezekiah and Maria, they'll hand me a laugh,
- And my old dad will be so glad, he'll kill the fatted calf.
