Song of the Day #4,958: ‘Tennessee Song’ – Margo Price

Tennessee singer-songwriter Margo Price makes her third appearance on the blog, all for her debut album, 2016’s Midwest Farmer’s Daughter.

The first post marked the release of this album, one I enjoyed very much, and the discovery of a promising new talent. The second post, two years later, bemoaned the fact that I hadn’t listened to Price much at all since first encountering her, and noted that she had recently released a sophomore album.

Now, it’s been a little more than three years since her last appearance. I haven’t listened to her since then, a fact I will bemoan once again because I really do like her sound.

And in keeping with the pattern, she has released a third album since I last posted, a 2020 effort called That’s How Rumors Get Started.

Thank you, Margo… see you in 2025!

[Chorus]
Let’s go back to Tennessee
You and me
Let’s go back to Tennessee
Let’s go back

[Verses 1-2]
Get off your chest what’s on your mind
Pull the cork and pour the wine
Spill the beans, break the bread
The way you sing could wake the dead

I’ve been thinking about the road
Saddle up and let it roll
I don’t know what suits you best
Sixty-five or Forty West

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Without a doubt I may be wrong
But I’ve got a feeling going strong
In this world we won’t be long

[Verse 3-4]
The future ain’t what it used to be
Let’s go back to Tennessee
Mountain high and valley low
Let’s build down where the waters flow
Dig a well, pump the crank
Catch our dinner from the river bank
City life’s a poison pill
Take me down where the wind is still

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Take your time, baby, don’t take long
Play another southern song
In this world we won’t be long

[Chorus]
Let’s go back to Tennessee
You and me
Let’s go back to Tennessee
Let’s go back

[Verse 4-5]
Way back when the land was free
By nature and sovereignity
Lakota lived here long ago
Living off the buffalo

Seasons go, seasons come
Who we are and where we’re from
The truth is clear to those who know
As above, so below
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Take your time but don’t take long
Play another southern song
In this world we won’t be long

[Chorus]
Let’s go back to Tennessee
You and me
Let’s go back to Tennessee
Let’s go back

Let’s go back to Tennessee
You and me
Let’s go back to Tennessee
Let’s go back
Let’s go back
Woo-ooh-ooh
