You Can't Keep Me Here In Tennessee

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album Lord, Mr. Ford (1973).

By the time we left Kentucky all that was on my mind
Was the way I 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 tree when you're cut down
And you been too long hackin' away at me
Well it's along long road I'm taking 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's never shone on me shone on me

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

Well my mind's been in a dungeon
A prison ain't a world of make believe make believe
And I'm begging for your pardon
I've served my time and somehow take my leave take my leave

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