Tennessee - Arrested Development

Señor...
Llévame a otro lugar
Llévame a otra tierra
Hazme olvidar lo que me hiere
Permíteme entender tu plan

No es que quiera irme...
Es que quiero otra Colombia.

Donde no nos hagamos heridas,
donde puedan sanar las que ya hemos hecho,
y las que nos han hecho.





Lord I've really been real stressed
Down and out, losin ground
Although I am black and proud
Problems got me pessimistic

Brothers and sisters keep messing up
Why does it have to be so damn tuff?
I don't know where I can go
To let these ghosts out of my skull

My grandmas past, my brothers 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)


Take me to another place
Take me to another land
Make me forget all that hurts me
Let me understand your plan
x2


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 Dyesburg 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

Eshe? She went down to Holly Springs.
Rasha Don and Baba? They went down to Peachtree.
Headliner, I challenge you to a game of horseshoes.
A game of horseshoes!

Now I see the importance of history
Why 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 enlightment of all my folks
He said cuz 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
Oh, 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

Chorus

Oh, won't you let me
Won't you help me
Won't you help me understand you plan?
(Tennessee)

Take me home
Take me home
Home
(Tennessee)

Take me to another place
Take me home
(Tennessee)

Oh you know I need to go home, yeah
(Tennessee)

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
Hmm? Speech's hair?
No it look like the roots of the tree my ancestors were hung from
But that's okay, get it, 'cuz he's down to earth

Tennessee
Tennessee
Whoo! Yeah!

Tennessee
Te... Tenness...
