"Tennessee" as written by and Hall....
It ain't often I take time
To answer calls on the request line
But this one says we're his best last chance
So all you people in radio land
Turn it up loud, loud as you can
Help to carry these words from a desperate man

Do you believe in love
And that we were meant to be
Two words can free us
So repeat them after me
'I do' from a boy in love
To a girl called Tennessee

It's always scary when you find true love
It hits like lightning from high above
And you might only get one chance to say

Do you believe in love
And that we were meant to be
Two words can free us
So repeat them after me
'I do' from a boy in love
To a girl called Tennessee

He got scared and let her slip away
Now he knows he's not afraid
I put him on the air
In case she's listening somewhere

So take it to heart
Keep it in mind
Try to reach out through the telephone line
Caller, you're on the air
Say it so she hears

Do you believe in love
And that we were meant to be
Two words can free us
So repeat them after me
'I do' from a boy in love
To a girl called Tennessee

From a boy in love
To a girl called Tennessee
Tennessee

    General CommentPretty simple, straightforward song. Guy realizes he was stupid to let girl get away, guy tries whatever it takes to get her back, even calling a radio station she listens to in hopes she hears what he has to say. Great song to sing along to!
