Her [g] eyes were blue, her hair was [d7] auburn
Her smile was like an angel [g] fair
She was her daddy's only [d7] daughter
On the tennessee [g] border [g7]
One [c] night I took a ride just across the [g] line
I [a7] picked her up in a pickup truck
And she [d] broke this heart of [d7] mine
Her [g] mama said: "no-o, [d7] she's my only daughter,"
But we got married on the tennessee [g] border.
The roses were bloomin' [d7] there on the border
The moon was shinin' [g] there
Her personality made me [d7] want her
On the tennessee [g] border.
