Jerry Reed - You Can't Keep Me Here In Tennessee Lyrics




By the time we left Kentucky all that was on my mind
Was the way I've spent my trouble like a dime
When we got back to Nashville things were still the same
Lord my thought went back to Texas and I hoped to ease the pain

Cause you fall like a tree when you're cut down
And you been too long hackin' away at me
Well it's a long long road I'm takin' back to Texas
Cause you can't keep me here in Tennessee

Well in all my looking at you
It's funny all the things I've never seen Lord
Cause the sun don't shine beside you
Least wise it ain’t never shone on me shone on me

Cause you fall like a tree when you're cut down...

Well my mind's been in a dungeon
A prison in a world of make believe make believe
And I'm a beggin' for your pardon
I've served my time and so now I'll take my leave take my leave

Cause you fall like a tree when you're cut down...
Yes you fall like a tree when you're cut down...
