Tennesee Stud

Cash Johnny

Back about eighteen and twenty-five
I left Tennessee very much alive
I never would have made it through the Arkansas mud
If I hadn't been ridin on the Tennessee stud

I had some trouble with my sweetheart's pa
One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
I wrote a letter to my Uncle Fud
And I rode away on the Tennessee stud

The Tennessee stud was long and lean
The color of the sun and his eyes were green
He had the nerve and he had the blood
And there never was a horse like the Tennessee stud

Drifted on down into no man's land
Across the river called the Rio Grande
I raced my horse with the Spaniards fold
Till I got me a skin full of silver and gold

Me and the gambler we couldn't agree
We got in a fight over Tennessee
We pulled our guns, an' he fell with a thud
And I rode away on the Tennessee stud


I rode right back across Arkansas
I whipped her brother and I whipped her pa
I found that girl with the golden hair
And she was ridin' on a Tennessee mare


Pretty little baby on the cabin floor
Little horse colt playin' 'round the door
I love the girl with golden hair
And the Tennessee stud loves the Tennessee mare
