    The people of Tennessee want to know who wrecked our gravy train.
    The one we thought was run so well and now who can we blame?
    They want to know who greased the track and start them down the road?
    This same ol’ train contained our money to build our highway roads.
    But now we’re up against it and no use to raise a row.
    But of all the times I’ve ever seen, we’re sure up against it now.
    The only thing that we can do is to do the best we can.
    Follow me, good people, I’m bound for the promised land.

    Lyrics By Uncle Dave Macron

    Now, I could be a banker without the least excuse.
    But look at the treasurer of Tennessee and tell me what’s the use?
    We lately bonded Tennessee for just five million bucks.
    The bonds were issued and the money tied up and now we’re in tough luck.
    But now we’re up against it and no use to raise a row.
    But of all the times I’ve ever seen, we’re sure up against it now.
    The only thing that we can do is to do the best we can.
    Follow me, good people, I’m bound for the promised land.

    Some lay it all on parties, some lay it on others you see.
    But now that you can plainly see what happened to Tennessee.
    For the engineer pulled the throttle, conductor rang the bell,
    The brakeman hollered ‘all aboard’ and the banks all went to hell.
    But now we’re up against it and no use to raise a row.
    But of all the times I’ve ever seen, we’re sure up against it now.
    The only thing that we can do is to do the best we can.
    Follow me, good people, I’m bound for the promised land.
