Nutbush City Limits Lyrics

by Bob Seger

There's a church house, gin house
School house, outhouse
On us, 19
Hey, the people keep the city clean

They call it Nutbush, Nutbush
Nutbush City, Nutbush City limits
25 is the speed limit
Motorcycles not allowed in it

Go to town on Saturday
Go to church on Sunday
Up in, up in Nutbush City
Nutbush City limits, say it again

Work the fields on weekdays
Have a picnic, every labor day
Go to town on a Friday
Be in church on a Sunday

Up in, up in Nutbush City
Nutbush City limits, little old town
Down in tennessee

A real quiet community
A real quiet southern community
Not much happens in Nutbush
You can hear the corn grow

Got to watch out for the police
Drivin' through Nutbush
Got to watch out for the police
If you're drivin' through Nutbush

Watch out for the police
Watch out for the police
Keep an eye out for the police
Keep an eye out for the police
An eye out for the police

Nutbush City limits
Nutbush City limits
Nutbush City limits
