Tennessee State Song

When It's Iris Time in Tennessee
composed and written Willa Mae Waid

   Sweetness of Spring memories bring
   Of a place I long to be.
   Land of Sunshine calls this old heart of mine,
   Come back to Tennessee.

   Chorus:
   When it's Iris time down in Tennessee,
   I'll be coming back to stay
   Where the mockingbird sings at the break of day
   A lilting love song gay.
   Where the Iris grows,
   Where the Harpeth flows,
   That is where I long to be.
   There's a picture there that lives in memory
   When it's Iris time in Tennessee.
The Tennessee State Song, "When It's Iris Time in Tennessee", by Willa Mae Waid, was adopted in 1935. According to press reports at the time, it was commonly heard in school pageants during Iris Festival Week.
