I used to stress myself to sleep, trying to catch or grab success Now I fight to leave the struggle to the veins above my neck From me screaming at this microphone to get shit off my chest

But at the time I couldn't vote when almost nobody had my back Except my mama and she told me, Don't ever give up having hope (I won't) You can be a royal king if being a king is what you want So I soak my skin in ink on how I feel in desperation And I catch a couple Zs and I immerse and make a statement And I close my eyes and drift through the weeds Of the fields wide open with the owls and the trees And the snakes in the creeks got that muddy water raging After the white church is shaking and the thunder lights the way And past the double doors that open with velvet on the steeple The only dream of mine is living dreams out for my people So let me grab a pillow and lay beneath the willows And I'll tell you all about it when I wake up from Tennessee dreaming Young U with a cracked windshield and barely any money Now I get shit from these folks for turning my life around And I got myself something But I ain't feeling bad no not one bit If you ain't helping yourself I don't wanna hear shit 'Cause I didn't have help in music city, I'm a high school dropout, didn't even finish No GD, no damn degree, now I'm talking to folks with GPA Asking me about choices they gotta make, well my voice on Rolling Stone magazine 'Cause my face is a imagine of a genre across this road in all these American streets And it freaks me out till I pinch my skin just to make sure that this ain't a dream And I close my eyes and drift through the weeds Of the fields wide open with the owls and the trees And the snakes in the creeks got that muddy water raging After the white church is shaking and the thunder lights the way And past the double doors that open with velvet on the steeple The only dream of mine is living dreams out for my people So let me grab a pillow and lay beneath the willows And I'll tell you all about it when I wake up from Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Ooh, Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming Tennessee dreaming
