Lyrics

Lord, I've really been real stressed, down and out, losing ground.
Although I am black and proud, problems got me pessimistic.
Brothers and sisters keep messin' 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.

Tennessee is such a great oldschool jam. I miss good hip hop from the 90's! Actually I just miss the 90's in general.

I love this jam. I saw Arrested D at Lolapalooza '93 at the Gorge in Wa state. I was 13 and that show changed my life. I wish main stream hip hop would have embraced this style more.
