Song:   Tennessee Love
Typed by: 

I must be Jim Morrison to get a motherfuckin girl like you
Don't know what I did in my past life but it must've been somethin cool
Cause I'm a whiskey-drinkin, fight-provokin, cigarette-smokin dude
I got a problem with my, attitude it's, hard for me to keep cool
But when I look at you, I see me, a reflection of a real soul
So pardon me, if I may seem, loose and outta control
It ain't the drink talkin, it's me talkin, fuck if everyone knows
you my girl and that's that, so hop on the back of this bike and roll
Let's roll now

[Chorus: Yelawolf]
I'd never let someone straight up disrespect you
I'd never let someone call you out yo' name
I'll always be the one that runs up to protect you
Cause I know if I was down you'd come and do the same
So let's pack it up and move our life to Nashville
Build a studio in the house and do our thing
And I'll take you out and we'll go honky-tonkin
Get drunk and fall in Tennessee love
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooooh) Tennessee love
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooooh) Fall in Tennessee love
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooooh) Fall in Tennessee love
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooooh) Fall in Tennessee love

Can't you see that my hands are shakin?
Withdrawals, from alcohol, ain't no use in us fakin
But it's our life, ain't it baby? So ain't no use in us takin
a chance with it, so I promise, that I'll work on my patience
Someday, if we get lucky, and we grow and get old
We'll look back, and laugh about, the circus and the show
But for now, we live it up, we spend it up and we go
to the last call in every bar in this town, turn the lights on and close
You and me now


When I first met you I was so broke
And I tried to hide behind the Alabama pines, prayin that you didn't know
about my problems, cause I couldn't, bear to see you go
And when you found out, all that happened, your little heart was broke
And I had to earn it back, and I learned in fact, that money don't fix that shit
Not tattoos, and I-love-you's, it's trust that I had to get
I'm sorry that I, ever hurt you, for anything that I did
Can I put this ring on your finger? Let you know that I'm serious
Marry me now
