Along about eighteen twenty five 
I left Tennessee very much alive 
And I never would got through the Arkansas mud 
                        C         D        
If I hadn't been a-ridin that Tennessee Stud 
I had me some trouble with my sweetheart's Paw 

One o' her brothers was a bad outlaw 

I sent her a letter by my Uncle Fud 

Then I rode away on the Tennessee Stud 
D                     C        D    
The Tennesee Stud was long and mean 
    ?F?          C           D 
The color of the sun and his eyes were green 
( D )                     C       D 
He had the nerve and he had the blood  
( D )                                  C        D          
And there never was a horse like The Tennesee Stud 
We drifted on down inta no man's land  
And crossed that river called the Rio Grande 
I raced my hoss with a Spaniard's foal 
'Til I got me a skin full of silver and gold 
Me and the gambler we couldn't agree 
We got in a fight over Tennessee 
We jerked our guns and he fell with a thud 
And I got away on the Tennessee Stud 
Well I got just as lonesome as a man could be 
A-dreamin of my girl in Tennessee 
The Tennessee Stud's green eyes turned blue 
'Cause he was dreamin bout his sweetheart too 
We loped right back across Arkansas 
I whooped her brother and I whooped her Paw 
When I found that girl with the golden hair 
She was a-ridin that Tennessee Mare  
Ad lib Whoa Boy 
Stirrup to stirrup and side by side 
We crossed them mountains and the valleys wide 
We came to big muddy and then we forded a flood 
On the Tennesee Mare and the Tennessee Stud 
There's a prety little girl on the cabin floor 
And a little horse colt layin on the floor 
I love that girl with the golden hair 
And the Tennesee stud loves the Tennessee Mare 
Ad lib They're good horses
