Gene Watson - Tennessee Sunshine Lyrics

(Porter Wagoner)

Well, just before the sun rise in the morning
I'll be on the highway headed home
Home is just a little bit east of Nashville
Where the Tennessee River winds along.

Lord, I'm gonna hear the roosters crow in Sourwood Mountains
I got that homesick feeling in my bones
I'd give these traveler blues for some Tennessee sunshine
Tennessee sunshine and you loving me.

I worked in the Texas sand a pickin' cotton
And I tried rodeo in last fall
And I worked in factory in Deoria Illinois
And traveled Canada east to Montreal.

Lord, I wanna hear the roosters crow in Sourwood Mountains
I got that homesick feeling in my bones
I'd give these traveler blues for some Tennessee sunshine
Tennessee sunshine and you loving me.

Wonder if the folks back home will know me
Since they saw me I've lost thirty pounds
I sure have missed my mama's country cooking
And the Sunday singing and dinner on the ground.

Lord, I wanna hear the roosters crow in Sourwood Mountains
I got that homesick feeling in my bones
I'd give these traveler blues for some Tennessee sunshine
Tennessee sunshine and you loving me.

Tennessee sunshine (loving me), Tennessee sunshine (loving me)
Tennessee sunshine (loving me), Tennessee sunshine (loving me...)
