My Sunny Tennessee lyrics, by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, Herman Ruby – (from the musical Three Little Words starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton)

When the shades of night are falling
Tennessee, I hear you calling;
My thoughts just roam
Back to home, sweet home.
Every day my heart grows fonder,
Of the folks I left down yonder;
I wonder when I’ll be there again.
