about

"To Tennessee" is a rootsy song with a southern rock edge about a trucker who misses his home & family. Everything he sees on the road reminds him of home.

lyrics

‘Top off a tank full of diesel fuel,
crank up the tunes, and off I cruise,
haulin’ twenty tons with no time to lose.
A’ thousand miles to drop the load and move.
Then it’s home, here I come.
Every second I’m away is way too long,
because everywhere I go
reminds me of sweet, Tennessee
with its painted scenes and its beauty queens.
Everything I see
reminds me that all roads will lead
to the fresh fields of Tennessee.
Truck-stops and gift-shops, cops and booze,
cheap women too, they know my route, oohoo…
To the tourists only passing through,
I may seem rude, but have a job to do, oohoo…
So I’ll claim my piece of highway,
put the big-rig in gear, and pass them smiling,
because everyone I see
reminds me of my family
waiting patiently in Tennessee.
Everyone I meet
begs to hitch a ride for free
and head with me to Tennessee.
***
And it’s where I go to find my peace,
to the crown jewel of the great southeast.
Because everywhere I go
reminds me of sweet, Tennessee
with its history and its beauty queens.
Everyone I meet
says they’ve always dreamed of being
in the painted scenes of Tennessee
with the fresh fields and beauty queens,
so hitch a ride with me to Tennessee.
