Fancy cars and diamond rings
I seen all kinds of shiny things
I should be feelin' like a king
But lord I don't

Great big towns, so full of users
Make a million, still a loser
Some may bet on you to win
Most hope you won't

Livin' wild, ain't no mercy being free
When it brings you to your knees
Can't keep lying

I've seen the road now
I know just what I need
To find my way back to Tennessee
I'm going home now
To Southern, is so sweet
And find my way back to Tennessee

I was only seventeen
I lived behind my beauty queen
I turned my back on everything
And everyone

Rooms with lots of pretty faces
Still don't fill the empty spaces
Wanderin' where Amazing Grace is
There is none, no

Now I know, there's no comfort in this world
God I miss that hometown girl
Want to hold her

I'm on the road now
I know just what I need
To find my way back to Tennessee
I'm coming home now
To Southern, is so sweet
And find my way back to Tennessee

All this time I was chasing after dreams
It was right in front of me
I was lost without her

I'm on the road now
I know just what I need
To find my way back to Tennessee
I'm coming home now
To Southern, is so sweet
And find my way back to you and me
Find my way back to Tennessee
