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]
CHORUS 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.
