I came down to Nashville
to have my name put up in lights,
but all I’ve been doing since I arrived here
is get drunk on Saturday night’s.
There are a million others in this town
that are just like me.
Trying to hit the big time,
here in Nashville Tennessee.
I thought I could play a hot guitar
and write real cool country song,
but ever since I’ve been in this burgh,
things have gone all wrong.
My best girl up and left me,
and I had to hock my old guitar.
It doesn’t look like I’ll make it,
as a big time country star.
There’s nothing left but to crawl back home,
now that my dreams have been knocked down.
I’m going to catch the next Greyhound,
that’s leaving this Nashville town.
