Tennessee Christmas
(Gary Chapman/Amy Grant)



Come on weather man give us a forecast snowy white

Can't you hear the prayers of every childlike heart tonight

Rockies are callin', Denver snow fallin'

Somebody said it's four feet deep, but it doesn't matter

Give me the laughter, I'm gonna choose to keep



Another tender Tennessee Christmas, the only Chirstmas for me

Where the love circles around us like the gifts around our tree

Well I know there's more snow up in Colorado than my roof will ever see

But a tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me



Every now and then I get a wanderin' urge to see

Maybe California, maybe Tinsel Town's for me

There's a parade there, we'd have it made there

Bring home a tan for New Year's Eve

Sure sounds exciting, awfully inviting, still I think I'm gonna keep



Another tender Tennessee Christmas, the only Christmas for me

Where the love circles around us like the gifts around our tree

Well they say in L.A. it's a warm holiday, it's the only place to be

A tender Tennessee Christmas, is the only Christmas for me



Well I know there's more snow up in Colorado than my roof will ever see

But a tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me

A tender Tennessee Christmas is the only Christmas for me
