Tennessee 

Written in August 1998 in Edmonton, Alberta

You belong
Somewhere different they say
You belong
On a long highway
Somewhere south
Maybe Tennessee way
Anyhow, you were leaving today

You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me for Tennessee

I remember how you said you were getting out
In a Cadillac and a Marlboro in your mouth
All that’s changed
And you can blame that on me
If it’s all the same, honey, could we go to Tennessee

You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me for Tennessee

You were always leaving town
With that suitcase and that poor excuse for a frown
It’s seems you were always leaving town
While me, I hung around

You belong
Somewhere different they say
You belong
On a long highway
Somewhere south
Maybe Tennessee way
Anyhow, you were leaving today

You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me
You were always leaving me for Tennessee
