Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Tennessee Mountain Home (Dolly Parton)
Subject: RE: Tenn Mt Home
One I did at the Getaway is called "The Mountains of TENNOSSEE". I think it is a Carter family song. I learned it from Jim & Kim Lansford from MO. It goes like this:
Take me back, take me back, to my old mountain home
Take me back where my heart longs to be.
Where I played by the brook in the cool shady nook,
In the mountains of Tennosee.
In my old mountain home, where the wild roses bloom,
It's a spot just like heaven to me.
Take me back, take me back, to my old mountain home,
In the mountain of Tennosee.
