A Song A Day In Nashville  (John Sebastian)


Well there's one more out-of-towner
In Nashville, Tennessee
He's come with all his hopes up high
And a list of folks to see
Cause pedal steels and take-out-meals
Have lured another soul
And a song a day in Nashville
Was what he's send back home

His lists were all familiar names
They've turned him down before
But that was with a pick-up band
And tunes that weren't his owns
But he was on his feet again
A girl had hepled him sail
A song a day in Nasville
And then the come back trail

There's a song a day in Nasville
That's how it's gonna be
There'll be no hangin' round these bars
Competin' with TV
Cause pedal steels and take-out meals
Are callin' me to go
And a song a day in Nashville
Is what I'll send back home

Yes, I'll take my songs to Nashville
I know they'll play 'em right
TThey'll be signed "Love from Nashville
Be back tomorrow night"
Cause you're the one that let me go
Without an achin' brain
Your faith in me has set me free
To write these songs again

There's a song a day in Nasville
That's how it's gonna be
There'll be no hangin' round these bars
Competin' with TV
Cause pedal steels and take-out meals
Are callin' me to go
And a song a day in Nashville
Is what I'll send back home

Ten days and I'll be home
And a song a day in Nashville
Ten days and I'll be home
