Valerie Smith & Becky BullerTennessee Courtin' Time

The boys have on their Sunday clothes
The girls are wearing satin bows
The preacher's smilin' 'cause he knows
It's Tennessee courtin' time

They're all dressed up in colors bright
Flyin' higher than a kite
The front porch will be dark tonight
It's Tennessee courtin' time

When they see a shootin' star
The boys can kiss the missus
They'll be bringin' in lightenin' bugs
To get them extra kisses

The old folks found some place to go
Maybe to a picture show
They'll leave the parlor lights down low
It's Tennessee courtin' time

They're dustin' off their dancin' shoes
Struttin' around like kangaroos
And busy spreadin' around the news
It's Tennessee courtin' time

The boys are buzzin' 'round like bees
Shinin' up their Model T's
Tonight they're gonna fan the breeze
It's Tennessee courtin' time

Johnny comes callin' 'round tonight
To try his Janey's cookin'
He won't care if it's good or bad
Because she's so good lookin'

So milk the cows, feed the hogs
And fill the wood box full of logs
Put out the fire and call the dogs
It's Tennessee courtin' time
