Eddy Arnold - Tennessee Stud lyrics

Well there never was a horse like Tennessee Stud

Along about eighteen twenty five

I left Tennessee very much alive

I never would've got through the Arkansas mud

If I hadn't been a ridin' 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 Fudd

And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud


The Tennesee 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 hoss 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 a SPANIARD foal

Till 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 just as lonesome as a man could be

Dreamin' of my girl in Tennessee

The Tennessee Stud's green eyes turned blue

Cause he was a dreamin' of his sweetheart too

We loped right back across Arkansas

I whoopped her brother and whopped her pa

I found that girl with the golden hair

As she was a ridin' on the Tennessee Mare


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

A pretty little baby on the cabin floor

A frisky little colt playin' 'round the door

I loved the girl with the golden hair

And the Tennessee Stud loved the Tennessee Mare
