Cold Tennessee Rain

Carolina sun shines bright
When you’re by my side
But my mind goes traveling
To where Virginia hides you
And now I’m on a lonely road
Leaving you behind
And the cold Tennessee rain
Is all that I can find


Cold Tennessee rain
Keeps on coming down
And I keep thinking of you
Lost in the sound of a
Country lullaby
That I used to sing
When I first met you
There in Tennessee

I’m just a stranger
In this God-forsaken town
Where country hearts all
Gather to the sound
Of broken love songs
Hoping they’ll come true
I wish the Tennessee rain
Would take me back to you


Now I’m just a country girl
Who has to sing a song
And Love I’ve given you
All that I have owned
A country lullaby and a
Love song sweet and true
But in the Tennessee rain
They sound a little blue
