Chorus:

	 C   G7    C
	Nashville cats, play clean as country water
	 C   G7    C
	Nashville cats, play wild as mountain dew
	 C   G7    C
	Nashville cats, been playin' since they's babies
	 C   G7    C
	Nashville cats, get work before they're two

Verse 1:

	              (C)          G7
	Well, there's 1352 guitar pickers in Nashville
	             (G7)
	And they can pick more notes than the number of ants on a
	      C
	     Tennessee ant hill
	                           F
	Yeah, there's 1352 guitar cases in Nashville
	       G7                                             C
	And anyone that unpacks his guitar can play twice as better than
	     I will

Verse 2:

	Well, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a musical
	     proverbial knee-high
	When I heard a couple new-soundin' tunes on the tubes and they
	     blasted me sky-high
	And the record man said every one was a yellow Sun record from
	     Nashville    [historical note: Sun was in Memphis]
	And up North here ain't nobody buys them, and I said "but I will"

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	Well, there's 16,821 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 had the chance to say a word about the music
	     and the mothers in Nashville

[repeat chorus]

Coda:

	(spoken:) Pick it...

	C                   F
	/ / / /   / / / /   / / / /  / / / /

	C         G7        C
	/ / / /   / / / /   / / / /  / / /
