​Back Home In Tennessee

This song is by Lee Clayton and appears on the album Border Affair (1978).

I grew up where the mountains are dark and reach the sky
Where the rivers in the valleys
Sparkle in the ire
Where the changing of the seasons touch you mystically
To the rhythms of the heartbeat
Back home in Tennessee

And I've looked for God in Texas
And I've looked for God in Spain
And I've looked for God in a woman's eyes
And in the roses in the rain
And I've wandered this world over
Wondering where can you be
And I've found you in myself, Lord
Back home in Tennessee

Now that I'm a grown man
I find I'm still a child
Sometimes I'm full of wisdom
Sometimes I'm half wild
And though my life is still a day to day mystery
I know that I belong here
Back home in Tennessee

I grew up where the mountains are dark and reach the sky
Where the rivers in the valleys
Sparkle in the ire
Where the changing of the seasons touch you mystically
To the rhythms of the heartbeat
Back home in Tennessee

And I can feel the heartbeat
Back home in Tennessee
