Tennessee Mountain Home

print

Sittin’ on the front porch on a summer afternoon
In a straight-back chair on two legs leaned against the wall
Watch the kids a-playin’ with June bugs on a string
And chase the glowin’ fireflies when evening shadows fall

   In my Tennessee mountain home
   Life is as peaceful as a baby’s sigh
   In my Tennessee mountain home
   Crickets singing in the fields near by

Honeysuckle vines cling to the fences along the lane
Their fragrance makes the summer wind so sweet
And on a distant hilltop an eagle spreads its wings
And a songbird on a fence post sings a melody

Drivin’ home from charch on Sunday with the one you love
Just laughin ‘talkin’ makin’ future plans
And when the folks ain’t lookin’ you might steal a kiss or two
Just sittin’ in the porch swing holdin’ hands
