Capo 4th fret

Standard (EADGBE)

Her eyes were blue, her hair was auburn.

Her smile was like an angel fair.

She was her daddy's only daughter.

On the Tennessee border.


One night I took a ride just across the line.

I picked her up in a pick-up truck.

And she broke this heart of mine.

Her mama said, "Nooo, she's my only daughter"!

But we got married at the Tennessee border.


The roses were blooming there on the border.

The moon was shining there.

Her personality made me want her.

On the Tennessee border.

(repeat chorus)
