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
