Her eyes were blue, her hair was auburn
Her smile was like an angel fair
She was her daddy`s only daughter
On the Tennessee Border 

One night I took a ride just across the line
I picked her up in a pickup truck
And she broke this heart of mine
Her mama said: "No-o, she`s my only daughter,"
But we got married on the Tennessee Border.

The roses were bloomin` there on the Border
The moon was shinin` there
Her personality made me want her
On the Tennessee Border.
