TEN TO ONE IT'S TENNESSEE (Clancey Hayes / Bob Scobey) as recorded by Hoagy Carmichael with Billy May & his Orchestra December 16th 1947 The smell o' roastin' possum Mixed with honeysuckle blossom An' a welcome mat; If there's room on the rack for one more hat, Ten to one it's Tennessee! Never in a hurry, No-one ever seems to worry, And that evenin' sun Goes to bed knowin' everything is done, Ten to one it's Tennessee! Now fate was kind to make me wander Far from the old front door, For I find the more I wander, I appreciate it more! Homespy? home is callin', So the night will find me crawlin' In a lower berth. If there's really a heaven here on earth, Ten to one it's Tennessee! Eventide you'll hear a cricket Chirpin' from a lovers' nook. Step aside, I'll get my ticket, Suddenly an old love took! Homespy? home is callin', So the night will find me crawlin' In a lower berth. If there's really a heaven here on earth, Ten to one it's Tennessee! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2017)
