There is a girl from Tennessee
With the eyes of heaven
From up above

She does not
Even know
My name

Even still
Even still
She gives
Me a thrill

Yes
I love her
Yes
I love her
Just the same

I met her
Down
On the avenue
She wore boots
They were
Her dancing shoes

She moved like
Magic
Around that Floor
I knew right
Then
I wanted more

I wanted more
Of that girl
From Tennessee

There is a girl from Tennessee
With the eyes of heaven
From up above

She does not
Even know
My name

Even still
Even still
She gives
Me a thrill

Yes
I love her
Yes
I love her
Just the same

I wrote her a
Letter
One day
Then
Found out
She was married
Along the way

I burned that
Letter
And watched
The flames
Burn
Into dust

Whenever I hear
Her name
I whistle a sad refrain
About that girl
From Tennessee


There is a girl from Tennessee
With the eyes of heaven
From up above

She does not
Even know
My name

Even still
Even still
She gives
Me a thrill

Yes
I love her
Yes
I love her
Just the same
