Nashville's Door

Lyrics

FROM THE GREAT LAKES AND ACROSS THE POND,
I'VE BEEN PICKIN' AND GRININ'IN THE NASHVILLE BARS,
I PUT IT ALL TOGETHER WHERE THE BLUEBIRD SANG,
TRYIN' TO FEED A HUNGER THAT I COULDN'T RESTRAIN.

I'VE BEEN PLAYIN' EVERY HONKEY TONK AND TWO BIT BAR,
EATIN' OUTTA CANS AND LIVIN' IN MY CAR,
I'M A GENUINE MODERN DAY TROUBADOUR,
AND I'M KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR,
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR,

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT I TAKE THE SHOW ON THE ROAD,
ONTARIO, CHICAGO AND THE GULF OF MEXICO,
WELL I'VE BEEN TEARIN' UP THE HIGHWAYS,
I SHOW EM' NO PITY,
AND EVERY ROAD IT LEADS ME BACK TO MUSIC CITY.

I'VE BEEN PLAYIN' EVERY HONKEY TONK AND TWO BIT BAR,
EATIN' OUTTA CANS AND LIVIN' IN MY CAR,
I'M A GENUINE MODERN DAY TROUBADOUR,
AND I'M KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR,
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR,

WELL, IT'S KINDA LIKE A RODEO OR PLAYIN' ROULETTE,
A HIGH WIRE WALKER WITHOUT A NET,
THERE AIN'T NO ROOM FOR THE WEAK OR BITTER,
AND NOBODY LIKES A QUITTER!

WELL THERE'S A SONG ON EVERY CORNER DOWN ON MUSIC ROW,
I MIGHT AS WELL FACE IT, MINE THEY DON'T KNOW,
I'M GONNA KEEP THE FIRE BURNIN' IN THE PAN TILL IT FRYS,
OR STICK MY HEAD BETWEEN MY LEGS AND KISS IT ALL GOODBYE,

CAUSE I'VE BEEN PLAYIN' EVERY HONKEY TONK AND TWO BIT BAR,
EATIN' OUTTA CANS AND LIVIN' IN MY CAR,
I'M A GENUINE MODERN DAY TROUBADOUR,
AND I'M KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR,
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKIN' ON NASHVILLE'S DOOR...
