Tennessee Song of the 97th General Assembly

Tennessee

words and music by Vivian Rorie

    I do not know of another state
    Where I had rather be
    Than this great state I'm living in
    And that is Tennessee.

    I love the stars dearly
    And there are surely three
    That show the Grand Division
    Of my home-land, Tennessee.

    Where could you find a meadow
    With grass so vividly green?
    Where could you find the mountains
    With such majestic scene?

    You will never find so bright a moon
    To shine down from above
    You will also see the robin
    The wren, and the turtle dove.

    And don't forget the rivers
    Where visitors long to stay.
    And many have voice in parting,
    'I'm sure glad I passed this way.'

    You will see the cattle grazing
    Beside a cotton field;
    And there's the Grand Ole Opry
    And a feeling it's all God's will.

    I have lived here all my life
    It's where I'm going to be
    Although I've traveled quite a bit,
    I'll still take Tennessee!

    Oh, I sure love the state I'm in:
    The great state of Tennessee!
