Yea winter in Tennessee can break a man's heart
You can see it crack in the rocking chair on the porch
Yet the God damn trees just stand still and keep watch
While the girl inside fingers a fresh deck of cards

And we got a fireplace but it ain't even wood
You just turn the timer on and 30 minutes you're all good
But in 10 minutes you're wishing you can turn it off
Unlike the love in this room you're wishing you can turn it off

And the birds sing country music in the morning
But it ain't like the shit you hear on the radio
Now they've got old time taste up in the mountains
They frown upon the city birds down below

Yea, but she wins every game she plays
From the throw of die to the pull of a slot machine
Yea she'll scoop up her winnings and rub it your face
That's okay, she's just scared she might lose you someday

You're both wonderin' who's going to say it first
Not me I've already cried too many tears for her
But I've hurt her ways I doubt she can find the words
Let's the sit here and watch our little fire burn

But we attack each other when the alcohol hits
Little fireworks ignite right inside our heads
But it seems like a lifetime before we take off our pants
But then we lie there rollin' on the bed

And when the party's over I retire to my book
She brought us a drink and cuts the deck in two
??? "John, you up for another game?"
I Said, "Deal it quick I'm afraid I'm bound to lose."

And I want no better lover
In the time that we have spent apart
I just assume he's the reason that led her here
And that a Winter in Tennessee can break her heart
