    Lyrics

    You have heard and read about the state of Tennessee
    Down in the southern states is where I wanna be
    Where the valleys are so green and mountains are so tall
    You will know just what I mean when you hear them say "You all"

    Tennessee
    (Tennessee)
    I hear you callin' me
    (I hear you callin' me)
    The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee

    When I was a little boy around the folks at home
    My mama always said to me, "Jimmy, please don't roam"
    Now that I have straight away my heart is full of woe
    When I think of Mom and Dad that's where I wanna go

    Tennessee
    (Tennessee)
    I hear you callin' me
    (I hear you callin' me)
    The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee

    If ever I get back to that state of Tennessee
    I tell you there'll be no more roamin' for me
    There lives a sweetheart who said, "She'd marry me"
    As soon as I get back to that state of Tennessee

    Tennessee
    (Tennessee)
    I hear you calling me
    (I hear you calling me)
    The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee
