Description of “My Sunny Tennessee” Watercolor

A watercolor inspired by these song lyrics and memories of East Tennessee.

“I’d love to go to sleep and know, that tomorrow I’d arise,
Beneath those Southern skies,
Where songbirds harmonize.

Lawdy hear my plea,
Make me what I wanna be;
A rolling stone just rolling home to my sunny Tennessee.”

(Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby / Herman Ruby, 1921)
