"My Tennessee Hills" as written by and Janis Ian....
When all my dreams have been shattered
And the fabric of life comes undone
When it seems like nothing matters
And all of my good times are gone
There’s a place that I’ve kept sheltered
From the sight of my sorrow and shame
Though it’s years since I beheld her
She still calls my name

I’ll go home, I’ll go home
Where the wild shadows roam
And the dawn over mountaintops spills
Where the deer pause in flight
On the edge of the night
I’ll go home to my Tennessee hills
I’ll go home to my Tennessee hills

When all my vows have been broken
And my wild heart can’t be tamed
When I’ve loved and lost once too often
And failure is my middle name
There’s a place that holds forgiveness
And the promise of peace in despair
When I’m down to my last witness
I’ll be going there

I’ll go home, I’ll go home
Where the wild shadows roam
And the dawn over mountaintops spills
Where the deer pause in flight
On the edge of the night
I’ll go home to my Tennessee hills
I’ll go home to my Tennessee hills
