about

For about a year, Emily and Rebecca (The Morris Sisters) and I sang songs around Nashville, after I stopped touring and before moving out west. These were the songs we sang.

All songs written by Julian Saporiti except "Wonderland" by an 8(?) year old Emily Morris Daniel and, of course, "Side by Side," which none of us wrote.

Dedicated to all those fun swing dances, game nights, and all of our friends/fans.

Track Name: Tennessee Mornings (Morris Sisters Version)
Sleep, sleep, sleep my child
Hear a mockingbird song off a Chattanooga mile
Wildwood flowers on a sunny hill smile
Dream of Tennessee mornings

Far, far away from here
One day you're gonna be free and clear
Trade the London hustle for a small town career
Go to work in Tennessee mornings

Sleep, sleep, sleep my child
A red phone booth with a Nashville dial
Take an overnight flight, grab a seat on the aisle
Wake up in Tennessee mornings

Will you ever get married?
Sisters, I don't know
If I find a southern gent, then I do suppose
He can have my ring finger if he shows me the light
Wakes me up in Tennessee mornings

Sleep, sleep, sleep my child
Wear a white cotton dress old Knoxville style
Iris flowers on a firewood pile
Dream of Tennessee mornings

Bones, bones and barbecue
Ribs and sweet tea about an hour til noon
I'm perfectly content with nothin to do
But waste away a Tennessee morning

Slow, slow your horses down
Meet a well mannered boy from Cookeville town
Says, 'yes ma'am' and 'no sir,' he lays a jacket down
Chivalrous in Tennessee mornings

Sing, sing all night long
Carter family tunes, old Bristol songs
Appalachian music where it belongs
Into the Tennessee mornings

Chorus

Sleep, sleep, sleep my child
Like a Memphis lady with her Mississippi wiles
Funny little catfish carry steamboat guile
Into the Tennessee mornings

Sleep, sleep, sleep my child
Hear a mockingbird song off a Chattanooga mile
Wildwood flowers on a sunny hill smile
Dream of Tennessee mornings
