Nashville Bum Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've been chasin' the big wheels all over Nashville
Waitin' for my big break to come
Livin' on ketchup soup, homemade crackers and Kool-Aid
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today I'm a Nashville bum

I look good in cowboy clothes and I sing through my nose
Webb said, "That's the way to get 'er done"
I smoke good old PA like the Opry stars, they say
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today I'm a Nashville bum

Well, a friend of a friend of mine is a friend of art divines
And he finally got me on the Opry show
I walked out like a star, tripped and busted my guitar
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today I'm a Nashville bum

Well, now here's a song I wrote by myself, note for note
With a lot of help, if I make number one
You can change a word or two and I'll give half of it to you
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today I'm a Nashville bum
Yes, I'll be a star tomorrow, but today I'm a Nashville bum
