Title :

Tennessee



Down and outlosin ground

Although I am black and proud

Problems got me pessimistic

Brothers and sisters keep messin up

Why does it have to be so damn tuff?

I don't know where I can go

To let these ghosts out of my skull

My grandmas pastmy brothers gone

I never at once felt so alone

I know you're supposed to be my steering wheel

Not just my spare tire (home)

But lord I ask you (home)

To be my guiding force and truth (home)

For some strange reason it had to be (home)

He guided me to Tennessee (home)



(Chorus) Take me to another place

Take me to another land

Make me forget all that hurts me

Let me understand your plan





Lord it's obvious we got a relationship

Talkin to each other every night and day

Although you're superior over me

We talk to each other in a friendship way

Then outta nowhere you tell me to break

Outta the country and into more country

Past Dyesburg into Ripley

Where the ghost of childhood haunts me

Walk the roads my forefathers walked

Climbed the trees my forefathers hung from

Ask those trees for all their wisdom

They tell me my ears are so young (home)

Go back to from whence you came (home)

My family tree my family name (home)

For some strange reason it had to be (home)

He guided me to Tennessee (home)



Chorus



Now I see the importance of history

Why people be in the mess that they be

Many journeys to freedom made in vain

By brothers on the corner playin ghetto games

I ask you lord why you enlightened me

Without the enlightment of all my folks

He said cuz I set myself on a quest for truth

And he was there to quench my thirst

But I am still thirsty...

The lord allowed me to drink some more

He said what I am searchin for are

The answers to all which are in front of me

The ultimate truth started to get blurry

For some strange reason it had to be

It was all a dream about Tennessee
