about

Down in Tennessee
I wrote this after reuniting with a friend from Tennessee who told me about what he has gone through, from all kinds of health problems with his kids, to losing his father, to defending himself with a gun in a horrible situation,
and ultimately killing a man. I can only imagine how horrible that must have been. Despite all that, he has this positive view on life that is so inspiring. He is still floating on.

lyrics

DOWN IN TENNESSEE

When hardship falls and you’re stuck in a corner
with a gun in your pocket and a bat flying at you
and all you can hear is to “cancel his christmas”
before red and green are forever out of your view.

Oh why’d you have to go through so much sorrow?
Why’d you have to go through so much pain?
But you’re still a float like a Holston river boat
moving on Down in Tennessee
Your mammy and pappy and sweet Daddy too
have all floated on down the river past you
but you’re still moving strong and to love do you hold and you’ll keep moving on with your heart filled with gold

Oh why’d you have to go through so much sorrow?
Why’d you have to go through so much pain?
But you’re still a float
like a Holston river boat moving on Down in Tennessee
