Along about eighteen and twenty-five I left Tennessee very much alive I never woulda got through the Arkansas mud If I hadn't been a-ridin' on the Tennessee stud I had some trouble with my sweetheart's pa One of her brothers was a bad outlaw I sent her a letter by my Uncle Fud And I rode away on the Tennessee stud The Tennessee stud was long and lean The colour of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud One day I was a-ridin' through a beautiful land When I ran smack into an Indian band They jumped their nags with a whoop and a yell And away we went like a bat outta hell I circled their camp for a time or two To show 'em what a Tennessee horse can do Them Redskin boys couldn't get my blood 'Cause I was a-ridin' on the Tennessee stud The Tennessee stud was long and lean The colour of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud We drifted on down into no man's land We crossed the river called the Rio Grande I raced my horse with a Spaniard bold Till 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, he fell with a thud And I got away on the Tennessee stud The Tennessee stud was long and lean The colour of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud Well I got as lonesome as a man can be A-dreamin' of my girl in Tennessee The Tennessee stud's green eyes turned blue 'Cause he was dreamin' of his sweetheart too We loped right on across Arkansas I whupped her brother and whupped her Pa I found that girl with the golden hair And she was a-ridin' on a Tennessee mare The Tennessee stud was long and lean The colour of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud Stirrup to stirrup and side by side We crossed the mountains and the valleys wide We came to Big Muddy and we forded the flood On the Tennessee mare and the Tennessee stud A pretty little baby on the cabin floor A little horse colt playin' round the door I love the girl with the golden hair And the Tennessee stud loves the Tennessee mare The Tennessee stud was long and lean The colour of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud
