  1. Girl From Tennessee

From the album Chroma

Lyrics


Oh dear family it's hard just to write.
When you get this you'll be waking and I'll be on the train
I never could have asked for more in my life than your love and protection
Every day and every night

But I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, I met her last November in the big city.

Tell my baby sister, I love her so, send me her picture so I can see her grow.
Tell my brother I am sorry about the things we had planned. We'll get together next winter and I'll write when I can

I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, she's always on my mind now, I have to go and see

And her soul, oh it's bright as the moon, and it shines right through, the darkest of gloom. And her smile, oh it fills me with joy, a radiant beam right through my core

Father you gave me the courage to go. Mother you taught me to respect and to know. Now I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, she's alway on my mind now I have to go and see.

Because her soul, oh it's bright as the moon, and it shines right through, the darkest of gloom. And her smile, oh it fills me with joy, a radiant beam right through my core.

And so this is goodbye, and so this is goodbye.
