Doc Watson - Tennessee Stud chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
 Along about eighteen twenty-five
 I left Tennessee very much alive
 I never would've made it through the Arkansas mud
                                A         D   
 If I hadn't been riding on the Tennessee Stud

 Had some trouble with my sweetheart's Pa
 One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
 I wrote her a letter by my Uncle Fudd
                        A         D   
 And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud

|    D                  C        D   
|The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
|    G                        F         A    
|The color of the sun and his eyes were green
|He had the nerve and he had the blood
|                             A         D   
|There never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

 We drifted on down into no man's land
 We crossed that river called the Rio Grande
 Raced my horse with the Spaniard's fole
 Til I got me a skin full of silver and gold

 Me and a gambler, we couldn't agree
 We got in a fight over Tennessee
 We jerked our guns and he fell with a thud
 And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud


I got just as lonesome as a man can be
Dreamin of my girl in Tennessee
The Tennessee Stud's green eyes turned blue
cause he was a dreamin of a sweetheart too

 I rode right back across Arkansas
 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


Stirrup to stirrup and side by side,
We crossed the mountains and the valleys wide.
We came to Big Muddy, then we forded the flood
On the Tennessee Mare and the Tennessee Stud.

 Pretty little baby on the cabin floor
 Little horse colt playing round the door
 I loved that girl with the golden hair
 And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare
