Well, there never was a horse Like the Tennessee stud Along about eighteen and twenty-five I left Tennessee very much alive I never would have gotten Through the Arkansas mud If I hadn't been riding on The Tennessee stud I had some trouble With my sweetheart's pa One of her brothers Was a bad outlaw I sent her a letter By my Uncle Fud And I rode away on The Tennessee stud (CHORUS) The Tennessee stud Was long and lean The color of the sun And his eyes were green He had the nerve And he had the blood And there never was a horse Like the Tennessee stud

We drifted on down Into no man's land We crossed the river Called the Rio Grande I raced my horse With the Spaniards bold Til I got me a skin Full of silver and gold Me and a gambler We couldn't agree We got in a fight Over Tennessee We jerked our guns He fell with a thud And I got away on The Tennessee stud Well, I got as lonesome As a man can be Dreaming of my girl In Tennessee The Tennessee stud's Green eyes turned blue Cause he was dneaming Of a sweetheart too We loped right on Across Arkansas I whipped her brother And I whipped her pa I found that girl With the golden hair And she was riding On the Tennessee mare (CHORUS) Stirrup to stirrup And side by side We crossed the mountains And the valleys wide We came to Big Muddy And we forded the flood On the Tennessee mare And the Tennessee stud Pretty little baby On the cabin floor Little horse colt Playing round the door I love the girl With the golden hair And the Tennessee stud Loves the Tennessee mare (CHORUS)
