Lyrics

I don't know what I've been sensing
there's reflection on your mind
Won't you talk to me sweet darlin, I'd say all will pass in time
abundance of your stresses, they are light but they are strong, change is guaranteed they won't last very long
I don't think you quite understand what's swimming in my head-I only want the best for you and the sweet love that you spread, can't explain the connection, but the exchange is clear to me, I am bound for better days in Tennessee
Tennessee Tennessee
I'm coming for you though it seems I'm running away I know you're lost but now I'm found in my own certain way
All we have to look for is better days in Tennessee
You can stand right there just smiling as I drive on down the road, you can follow if you want to but you'll carry your own load
My eyes are stretched wide open for what I want and what I need, I am bound for better days in Tennessee
Tennessee Tennessee
I'm coming for you though it seems I'm running away I know you're lost but now I'm found in my own certain way
All we have to look for , all we have to look for , all we have to look for , is better days in Tennessee
