"Sweet Home West Tennessee"
Though I've been away for such a while, when I think of my hometown I still smile.
This land has rivers, lakes and creeks, that if given the chance; I could roam for weeks.
It has rich bottom lands and hills; it has majestic big old trees and it has whippoorwills.
I know everywhere the stars do shine but here the stars are a special kind.
Folks here too are sure a certain kind and each one is stamped by God, special design.
When to me things aren't going right; I think of me a West Tennessee night.
When it seems none is going my way; I think of me a West Tennessee day.
Still today in my darkest night; I can close my eyes and see her light.
There with me were childhood friends where we shared life and schoolday trends.
I have there still some crazy pals and I love them all both guys and gals.
West Tennessee if there's one thing I love as much as you; it's your extra special barbeque.
No matter where else I may roam; West Tennesse you're still my home.

Mark 5: 19 .. Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
The Lord has let Regina and I serve with Him over a big part of this Great United States and in other parts of this world as well but when we talk about where we were born and raised; our hearts begin to swell. Just like you too, we have all kinds of memories both good and bad but when you think of your hometown; it's hard to be sad. We love both the people and the experiences we all elsewhere have known but we also love the place from where we were grown.
We get to go there sometimes to visit or preach a revival and it feels so good to have the opportunity to be able to do for them what we are called to do. We have friends and family too and we love going back for a while from time to time. One day we will go to a home that is a real home. There will be no more changing, no more loneliness and no more moving. Of course I'm writing about heaven and I personally believe everybody should have the opportunity to know how to get home. If you are a Christian show someone else the way home. If you are not a Christian then your ticket is ready and His name is Jesus Christ. Take your ticket. If you have your ticket then lead someone to the ticket alter. May God Really Bless You!. Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me.
