Verse 1: Speech

  • Lord, I’ve really been real stressed
  • Down and out, losing ground
  • Although I am Black and proud
  • Problems got me pessimistic
  • Brothers and sisters keep messin’ up
  • Why does it have to be so damn tough?
  • I don’t know where I can go
  • To let these ghosts out of my skull
  • My grandma’s passed, my brother’s gone
  • I never at once felt so alone
  • I know you’re supposed to be my steering wheel
  • Not just my spare tire (home)
  • But Lord I ask you (home)
  • To be my guiding force and truth (home)
  • For some strange reason it had to be (home)
  • He guided me to Tennessee (home)

Verse 2: Speech

  • Lord it’s obvious we got a relationship
  • Talking to each other every night and day
  • Although you’re superior over me
  • We talk to each other in a friendship way
  • Then outta nowhere you tell me to break
  • Outta the country and into more country
  • Past Dyersburg into Ripley
  • Where the ghost of childhood haunts me
  • Walk the roads my forefathers walked
  • Climbed the trees my forefathers hung from
  • Ask those trees for all their wisdom
  • They tell me my ears are so young (home)
  • Go back to from whence you came (home)
  • My family tree, my family name (home)
  • For some strange reason it had to be (home)
  • He guided me to Tennessee (home)

Chorus

  • Take me to another place
  • Take me to another land
  • Make me forget all that hurts me
  • Let me understand your plan

Interlude: Aerle Taree

  • Eshe, she went down to Holly Springs
  • Rasadon and Baba, they went down to Peachtree
  • Headliner, I challenge you to a game of horseshoes, a game of horseshoes

Verse 3: Speech

  • Now I see the importance of history
  • Why my people be in the mess that they be
  • Many journeys to freedom made in vain
  • By brothers on the corner playing ghetto games
  • I ask you Lord why you enlightened me
  • Without the enlightenment of all my folks
  • He said cause I set myself on a quest for truth
  • And he was there to quench my thirst
  • But I am still thirsty
  • The Lord allowed me to drink some more
  • He said what I am searching for are
  • The answers to all which are in front of me
  • The ultimate truth started to get blurry
  • For some strange reason it had to be
  • It was all a dream about Tennessee

Outro: Aerle Taree

  • Headliner, I won the game of horseshoes
  • Now you owe me a watermelon
  • Let’s go climb trees and skip over rocks
  • Do like they do below the border
  • Speech’s hair
  • Don’t it look like the roots of the tree that the ancestors were hung from
  • But that’s okay, get it cause he’s down to Earth
