In Part: “Of course, I knew that you were leaving and while I am sure / you are excited about getting back home, we will miss you / around here”. Bill Brock (b. 1930) represented Tennessee in the United States House of Representatives (1963-1971) and Senate (1971-1977). In his winning Senate race, he beat country singer Tex Ritter in the Republican primary and then upset 3-term Senator Albert Gore, Sr. in the general election.
