A great southern state with wonderful moral and ethical values. Just because you live in TN does not mean that you are hick that can't speak proper English. Yes, some of us do have an accent... but so do people from all around the north, midwest, east coast, west coast, and what have you. Some of the previous entries that talk about the school system being horrible and we talk lik dis... and we from tenner see and we eeet whiskey an' good ol' possum pie. NO ONE EATS OPOSSUM PIE. We are not hicks, and we are not stupid. We don't go walking around barefoot with hay hanging out of our mouths. I am proud to call myself a Tennessean. And if you have a problem with Tennessee, keep it to yourself, don't go nagging and talking about it being a worthless state and hell on earth. If you live here, and you hate it.. THEN LEAVE!! Stop complaining and whining and do something about getting out of our state, that we call home, and go back to wherever you came from.
Tennessee, a civilized moral and ethical state.

Things you Should Know Abot TN Before Moving Here (for Northerners):
1.What sweet tea(tea with sugar) amd sweet milk (not buttermilk) are.
2.Memphis is Detroit with a Southern accent.
3.No snowdays. Just "ice on the road" days. If the temp goes below 25F, we think a new Ice Age is upon us.
4.110 F is "a tad warm".
5. "Kiss my ass" is a perfectly acceptable way to end an argument.
6. Saying "Bless her/his heart" before you insult someone will safely allow you to drag them through the mud.
7.Toast is unnatural. Eat biscuits like God meant you to.
8. Flirtin' is Southern tradition. It doesn't mean you're getting lucky.
9. If you try to speak with our accent, remember draw out your vowels, y'all is two or more people, and y'all's is plural possessive. Don't blame me if you get an ass-whoopin'.
10. If you don't like it down here, the airline goes both ways.
All my exes live in Texas that's why I reside with pride in Tennessee

Tennessee is a wonderful state overall. Everything about it is nice. The people are very friendly. There is no one I know of that wouldn't be glad to help you out with something, like give you driving directions perhaps. Also, the state is beautiful, and has many breathtaking views that will keep you gazing for hours. Don't believe these other people that are not from Tennessee when they say anything negative. Most of it is not true, such as "we are uneducated." In fact, we have great school systems with teachers that actually teach many things that could be considered useful in life one day. Believe me..I am from Tennessee. Does this look written by an uneducated person? Here to defend the state in which I live in, and the best state of this country..the great state of Tennessee.
I am a Tennessean, and sure proud of it! Tennessee is one of the best states in this country!!

The most fantastic place in the world to live. If you live in the suburbs, you get great public schools, nice shopping, and those fantastic accents.
I miss my home. :(

I have lived in Tennessee since I was five. I am an educated individual who knows how to speak English correctly, without an accent. I attended one of the best public schools in the nation. And yes, it is located in Tennessee. I care about social justice issues. And I AM TENNESSEAN. As a Tennessean, I am sick and tired of the stereotypes of my great state. I am sick and tired of hearing that my friends and neighbors are rednecks with little intelligence. As a college student studying in the Northeast, someone recently told me that they were sorry I lived in Tennessee. Am I sorry? NO. These misconceptions about the state are formed by men and women who are themselves ignorant. Such ignorance reflects a lack of respect and real world education. Such ignorance perpetuates misunderstanding. Misunderstanding leads to greater global issues.
Instead, we should recognize Tennessee for its great contributions in ALL genres of music, for its beauty, and for its hospitality. We should respect it for its leading hospitals and for its historic value. This is Tennessee. Similarly, to curb the affects of ignorance we must recognize all states and nations for their great contributions as well.
From the ABC show Grey's Anatomy:
George: A southern accent doesn't make you stupid.

And neither does being from Tennessee.

Wish that I was on ole rocky top,
Down in the tennessee hills.
Ain’t no smoggy smoke on rocky top,
Ain’t no telephone bills.

Once there was a girl on rocky top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top,
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come back from rocky top,
Guess they never will.

Corn won’t grow at all on rocky top,
Dirt’s too rocky by far.
That’s why all the folks on rocky top
Get their corn from a jar.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Now I’ve had years of cramped up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it’s a pity life
Can’t be simple again.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.
Yeah rocky top tennesee eee eee eee.
Tennessee has the reddest rednecks in the world! Myself included!
