Lyrics Tennessee – Upchurch

I was raised on a Tennessee hill side
Sour blackberry bushes grow thick
With feet like the sole of a working man’s boot
And a head like a weight made of lead

Crooked grin, thorn sticking out my shoulder
Hair too damn long, oh well
They tell me take a break, I’m sorry I can’t
Tennesseans make music year round

I can’t help it, God put me in a place of green
Even the tractors got the same damn color paint
Same ol’ rivers and same ol’ streams
Cut that exhaust off, son, let it scream

God bless the south, I’ll never shut my mouth
And I’m proud to be from Tennessee
Tennessee, Tennessee
I’m proud to be from Tennessee
Hmmm

My favorite shirt has the arms cut out
With a couple old tobacco stains
I’ve burnt up eνery Kenny Chesney album
Drinkin’ Coors Light
Been sunburnt on a lake

And I wanna know how forever feels
But not in no hall of fame
‘Cause I’ll always be in a holler with the workin’ man
And that’s somethin’ nobody can take

I can’t help it, God put me in a place of green
Even the tractors got the same damn color paint
Same ol’ rivers and same ol’ streams
Cut that exhaust off, son, let it scream

God bless the south, I’ll never shut my mouth
And I’m proud to be from Tennessee
Tennessee, Tennessee
I’m proud to be from Tennessee…
