Lyrics

Overgrown country road no one knows,
I’ve been waiting to show you this place
And I know ain’t much, we can fix it up,
This little white house, my family, we used to call home by the

Tennessee River as it flows
Sings a song that we both know
Take my hand, my love, I promise you, we’re coming home,

Don’t look back, no regrets,
Leave that big city behind take my hand,
The snare is undone,

Say His name, King of kings
He leads us to still waters
He makes us lie down by the

Tennessee River as it flows
Sings a love song we both know
Take my hand, my love, I promise you, we’re coming home, to the

Tennessee River as it bends
Sings a love song that never ends
Take my hand, my love, I give you my father’s house

Take my sword, take my guns,
Take this rusty old crown, I lay it down,
I’m so tired of fighting,
Take my word, take my love,
On bended knee, I offer you a golden ring,

Country roads, drive them slow,
Our little dog smiles his red tongue flaps in the wind,
And all the pain and the constant strain,
Trust me, my love, I promise it’ll all wash away in the

Tennessee River as it flows
Sings a song that we both know
Hold my hand, my love, I’m telling you, this is our home, by the
Tennessee River as it bends
Sings a love song that never ends
Day and night the chorus rings in the valley below, on the
Tennessee River as it flows
Sings a song we both know
Day and night the chorus rings in the valley below
