As posted a couple of days ago, Stan and I are headed to Memphis tomorrow.
In my post, I asked if anyone knew the state song of Tennessee, so that I could sing it when we cross the state line. (I’ve determined to learn a song for every state so that I can sing it when I cross the border!)
Anyway, Jami directed me to a song called simply “Tennessee.” I decided that I would like to see if there were any other songs about Tennessee that I could sing. After all, when I cross over into Texas, I don’t sing the Texas state song. Instead, I sing my favorite Texas song, entitled “Texas,” from the original musical. So, I just wanted to explore my options.
I visited a few websites, and quickly discovered that Tennessee has not one, but five state songs! I shouldn’t have been surprised that the state that is home to so many musicians would have anything less.
Among the five state songs of Tennessee, I found one that I already knew, believe it or not. A little song called “Rocky Top.”
My two best friends from Arkansas, Allison and Rindy, and myself used to have a clogging routine to “Rocky Top.”
So, YAY! I have a song to sing when I cross the border!
Although, I just don’t know what I’ll do if we happen to cross over into Kentucky.
