Songwriter: Mike Cooley

Tune 1 whole step down
Capo 5

Intro (x1)
D	G	D 	D	G	D

Bm	G	D	G	A	D

Verse 1:
She was fresh out of college
The first one in her family to go
Bm		G	D
and California seemed like heaven,
G		A		D
Pulaski, Tennessee was her home

Repeat Intro

Verse 2:
D		G		D
She worked on losing her southern accent
D		               G	D
and turned her back on her Baptist ways
Bm		G		D
She bought some clothes that barely
D			G	
covered her fair skinned body,
A			D
Went to Nashville and caught a plane
G			D
Well the clouds rushed beneath her 
Bm			A
as the LA smog filled the air
G			D	Bm
And she smiled when the airlock opened
G		A		D		
The Pacific breeze blew through her hair

Repeat Intro

Verse 3:
D		G		D
She thought about the boys from Alabama
D		G		D
Who came into town every Friday night
Bm		G			D
and drank beer out of big glass quart bottles
G		A		D
and left their trail of blood and tears behind
G				D
She thought the men in California would be different
Bm			A
She'd grown up watching them on her TV
G			D	Bm
But the men she came to know in California
G		A		D
Left her longing for Pulaski, Tennessee

Repeat Intro

Bm				A
Good ideas always start with a full glass
G		D			A
and just breathing here can make a girl's nose bleed
G		D			Bm
Dreams here live and die just like a stray dog on a 
G		A		D
dirt road somewhere in Tennessee

Verse 4:
D	G		D
The storefronts all filled up with eyeballs
D	G		D
As the policemen clear out the street
Bm		                 G		D
For a line of cars with their headlights burning
G		       A		       D
Driving slow through Pulaski, Tennessee 

Repeat Intro
