Subject: Lyr Add: MY TENNESSEE MOUNTAIN HOME (Dolly Parton)
Written by Dolly Parton
As sung by Dolly Parton on "My Tennessee Mountain Home" (1973)

Sittin' on the front porch on a summer afternoon
In a straight-back chair on two legs, leaned against the wall,
Watch the kids a-playin' with June bugs on a string,
And chase the glowin' fireflies when evenin' shadows fall.

CHORUS: In my Tennessee mountain home,
Life is as peaceful as a baby's sigh.
In my Tennessee mountain home,
Crickets sing in the fields nearby.

Honeysuckle vine clings to the fence along the lane.
Their fragrance makes the summer wind so sweet,
And on a distant hilltop, an eagle spreads it's wings,
An' a songbird on a fencepost sings a melody. CHORUS

Walkin' home from church on Sunday with the one you love,
Just laughin', talkin', making future plans,
And when the folks ain't lookin', you might steal a kiss or two,
Sittin' in the porch swing, holdin' hands. CHORUS
