I was born across the river
In the mountains where I call home
Lord, times were good there
Don't know why I ever roamed

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can

We play together in Mother Nature's band

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band
