Back about eighteen and twenty-five
I never would've made it through the Arkansas mud

One of her brothers was a bad outlaw
I rode away on the Tennessee Stud
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean
He had the nerve and he had the blood

Across the river called the Rio Grande Raced my horse with the Spaniard's foe

We got in a fight over Tennessee Pulled our guns and he fell with a thud

The color of the sun and his eyes were green
There was never a horse like the Tennessee Stud
I rode right back across Arkansas
I whipped her Pa
She was riding on a Tennessee Mare
Pretty little baby on the cabin floor
I loved the girl with the golden hair

The color of the sun and his eyes were green
There was never a horse like the Tennessee Stud
