 A 
Well I was taking my time, shuffling a line 
                          E 
I had to get back on the road

Same old features, night time creatures 
                        A         
Make a boy feel pretty old

Drifting here and there without a worry or a care 
                                         E 
I wonder when my trail was coming to an end

I saw the wall in the Appalachian sun 
                                   A 
Riding six white horses round the bend


         D     
And she said my name with a country twang
        A E 
And my heart fell on the floor
 F#m D 
All my life, I've been waiting
       E A 
For a Tennessee mountain girl


 A 
She said she was a teacher and her daddy was a preacher
                                E 
And I can testify that she was blessed

And when she served me dinner I knew she was a winner
                                        A 
I was praying that she might give me a kiss

Well I know that I'm a sinner but she was no beginner
                           E 
When she drug me from the bar

She had me singing good old rocky top
                          A 
Underneath the Knoxville stars


      D                  
Well she was a treasure and I'm glad I met her
         A E 
But she left me wanting more
 F#m D 
All my life, I've been waiting
      E A 
For a Tennessee mountain girl


 A 
And when I was in Denver I certainly remember
                               E 
How the women there treated me kind

But I miss the thrills of the holler and the hills
                                     A 
And the girl with the smoky mountain eyes

And I tried Atlanta, Bozeman Montana
                          E 
Seattle, Santa Fe and Albany

But nothing compares with the sweet southern fare
                             A 
Of the little girl I met in Tennessee


                         D  
And I remember when she said my name with a country twang
           A E 
I left my heart there on the floor
 F#m D 
All my life I've been waiting
       E A 
For a Tennessee mountain girl
 F#m D  
All my life I've been waiting
       E A 
For a Tennessee mountain girl
