Nestled in the heart of the Tennessee Hills There neat the pines midst the rocks and the rills There stands my old homestead of long long ago It brings back sweet memories of the one I loved so I'll tell you the reason why I left her there To roam this old world with its sorrow and care I saw her one night in the arms of a man hugging and kissing as two lovers can I went to my home with a heart full of woe packed my belongings determined to go For many long years this old world I did roam With thoughts of my sweetheart my darling my own [ fiddle ] While dining one day in a little country town A stranger walked in and he chanced to sit down While talking of loved ones I happened to find That his sister was that old sweetheart of mine When he heard my story to me then he said The one you left there has a long time been dead She waited so long for the day you'd return And why you had left her she never did learn Now I was the one who you saw that fatal night Wrapped in the arms of my sister so tight She loved you so dearly but you broke her heart Stranger from her ever more you must part
