Sail away ladies
Ain't no use to sit and cry
You'll be an angel by and by

Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o
Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o

I got a home in Tennessee
(Sail away, ladies, sail away)
That's the place I wanna be
(Sail away, ladies, sail away)

If I ever get my way
(Sail away, ladies, sail away)
Tennessee is where I'll stay
(Sail away, ladies, sail away)

Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o
Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o

Ever I get my new house done
Give my old one to my son
Ever I finish this porch and stairs
Lie around in my rockin' chair

Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o
Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o

Ain't no use to sit and cry
You'll be an angel by and by
Won't be a long time 'round this place
So get a look at my funny face

Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o
Can't she rock 'em, can't she rock 'em
Can't she rock 'em, daddy-e-o
