  • (tom meltzer)
  • Once I had a sweetheart
  • She meant the world to me
  • I met her on the road one night when we were in tennessee
  • I met her in a barroom after wed done a show
  • We sat and talked about the louvins til the tender called time to go
  • She wrote her address on a napkin
  • I wrote mine on my cd
  • She said, it was sure nice talking to you
  • I said, youll be hearing from me
  • I wrote her a letter the next day
  • She wrote one in return
  • The letters we wrote each other could have made the mailbox burn
  • Yo-de-lay-he-he-hoo
  • I wrote her a long letter and told her that I loved her so
  • And if shed come to new york to the altar we would go
  • I sent it with a dozen roses and I waited for her reply
  • Til the day the letter came my way that made me want to die
  • It said, I know that you love new york
  • So wild and fancy free
  • And I love you, dear,
  • But I also love my home in tennessee
  • Now I know that youd be no more happy here than in the city I would be
  • So though I love you dear
  • Im gonna stay right here
  • Home in tennessee
  • Yo-de-lay-he-he-hoo
  • And now I know I will never wed
  • But a bachelor Ill always be
  • cause my heart belongs to a pretty girl down in tennessee
  • Yo-de-lay-he-he-hoo
