Well it's a sweet dream 
That keeps me close to you dear 
And it's a sad thing 
That we're apart, I'm blue dear 
And there are times now 

I thank the heavens up above 
When I'm with the one that I love 

Now there are diamonds 
That some may long to see 
And they may shine 
But not bright enough for me 

I wouldn't take no 
The whole world dipped in gold 
For a night with my Tennessee Rose 

Take this love that I am giving 
For it's truly the lasting kind 
The gift I hold is believing 
That you will always be mine 

Take this love that I am giving 
For it's truly the lasting kind 
The gift I hold is believing 
That you will always be mine 

Oh, oh, oh
Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
