Lyrics - "When I Get To Tennessee"

When I Get To Tennessee

 

I’m gonna buy myself a bike with a basket

Tell people where to go when they ask it

Drink just enough coffee not to call you

Every time I know I’ll want to

And I’ll finally make some friends who play the banjo

If I’m lucky, with a porch we can all go

Maybe take some walks when the sun’s low

Remind me I should leave my phone at home

 

But every time I get two hundred dollars and a brand new dress

I’m gonna fly you to the city just to catch my breath

It’s gonna be hard not to hold your hand

But we’ve still got a world to share when we can

When we can, when we can, when we can

 

I’m gonna listen to a record every morning

Still be the first to cry without a warning

Wanna meet you in the middle when you’re hurting

Tell me everything that you’ve been learning

I know I won’t see the water from my window

It’ll only taste better when I come home

When I come home, when I come home to you

 

But every time I get two hundred dollars and a brand new dress

I’m gonna fly you to the city just to catch my breath

It’s gonna be hard not to hold your hand

But we’ve still got a world to share when we can

When we can, when we can, when we can

 

Oh when I get to Tennessee, who will I be

When I’m free, how will I breathe

When I get to Tennessee, when I get to Tennessee, who will I be

I’m gonna buy myself a bike with a basket

Tell people where to go when they ask it

Drink just enough coffee not to call you

Every time I know I’ll want to

And I’ll finally make some friends who play the banjo

If I’m lucky, with a porch we can all go

Maybe take some walks when the sun’s low

Remind me I should leave my phone at home
