about

A collection of music in the traditional styles of Tennessee recorded in a few days in the last days of The Young Republic. Not enough original members left to consider it a true YR record. This was a record we printed specifically to sell while busking around the country. We sold over 2,000 just out of Kristin's violin case. Maybe we should have been an old time band...

Track Name: 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

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
