"South Nashville Blues" as written by and Steve Earle....
I went downtown, it was just to ease my pain
I went downtown, it was just to ease my pain
I ended up out walkin' in the rain
I took my pistol and a hundred dollar bill
I took my pistol and a hundred dollar bill
I had everything I need to get me killed

Southside gals, they suit me just fine
Southside gals, they suit me just fine
As long as I got money they don't whine

Now the devil lives on Lewis Street I swear
Yeah the devil lives on Lewis Street I swear
I seen him rockin' in his rockin' chair

I start way up top of Lewis Street
I walk down to the end
I start way up top and I walk down to the end
I'm goin' way down in the bottoms
I come back up again

Now Mama told me, Papa too
They both talked til they turned blue
But I got them ol' South Nashville blues again
I won't be satisfied until they lock me up again
