"Tennessee" as written by Waddie Mitchell, Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King....
i've got affection to criticize, monogamy to abhor
a cold heart and an altered state of mind
and baby you're just what i'm looking for
because we'll go to sleep when we're dead
and i'll quit when i'm 25
but now i'm feeling indestructible
aimlessly alive


greedy minds think alike
great artists, narcissistic
it seems like you fucked up down this road before
but you know me, i'm pessimistic
the elusive or the primitive divine
i'll go wherever it goes
butterfly guts on the windshield
cigarette smoke out the window


i've got a mental image of the way you used to look at me
baby, lets push our limits
i've got a west coast heart and an east coast mentality
baby, lets push our limits
i've got a racing mind and enough gas to get to tennessee
baby, lets push our limits
i've got a west coast heart and an east coast mentality
baby, lets push our limits tonight
