Nashville Cats

Nashville cats
Play clean as country water
Nashville cats
Play wild as mountain dew
Nashville cats
Been playin’ since they’s babies
Nashville cats
Get work before they’re two
Well there’s 13 hundred and 52
Guitar pickers in Nashville
And they can pick more notes
Than the number of ants
On a Tennessee ant hill
Yeah, there’s 13 hundred and 52
Guitar cases in Nashville
And anyone that unpacks his guitar
Can play twice as better than I will
Well, I just turned 6
You might say I was a musical
Proverbial knee-high
When I heard a couple
New sounding tunes on the tubes
And they blasted me sky high
And the record man said
Everyone is a yellow sun
Record from Nashville
And up north here
Ain’t nobody buys them
And I said, "But I will."

Chorus
Nashville cats
Play clean as country
Water
Nashville cats
Play wild as mountain dew
Nashville cats
Been playin’ since they’s babies
Nashville cats
Get work before they’re two

Well, there’s 16 thousand
Eight hundred and twenty-one
Mothers from Nashville
All their friends play music
And they ain’t uptight
If one of the kids will
Because it’s custom- made
For any mother’s son
To be a guitar picker in Nashville
And I sure am glad
I got a chance to say a word
About the music and the mothers
From Nashville
