lyrics

TENNESSEE STUD – Jimmy Driftwood

Long about 1825 I left Tennessee very much alive
Never would have made it through the Arkansas mud
If I hadn’t been riding on the Tennessee Stud

I had some trouble with my sweetheart’s Pa
One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
I wrote a letter to my Uncle Spud
And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud

Well the Tennessee Stud was long and lean
Color of the sun and his eyes were green
He had the nerve, and he had the blood
There never was a horse like a Tennessee Stud

I drifted down into no man’s land
Across the river called the Rio Grande
I raced my horse with the Spaniard’s foe
And I got me a purse full of silver and gold

Me and the gambler, we couldn’t agree
And we got in a fight over Tennessee
I pulled my gun, and he fell with a thud
And I rode away on a Tennessee Stud CHORUS

I rode right back into Arkansas,
And I whipped her brother and I whipped her Pa
I found that girl with the golden hair
And she was riding on a Tennessee mare

There’s a pretty little baby on the cabin floor
And a little horse colt playing round the door
I love that girl with the golden hair
And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare
CHORUS
