Just went to the great old state
And city of Nashville, Tennessee
It never has changed for about two years
But it still looks different

Old cowboys in the country bar
Looked mean, and clean and not so far away
They seen in a cofee shop
And one said, "Welcome to Nashville".

Tennessee Cowboys
Tennessee Cowboys
What do you expect it's Nashville

Just when I thought it could never be the same
I don't care your own woman now
Baby, just ain't right for me now

Oh the pain is different
The city is the same
I don't care about old cowboys
Nashville is the place to be

Tennessee Cowboys
Tennessee Cowboys
What do you expect it's Nashville honey
Oh yeah!

    General CommentThis song of great old guitarist George Thorogood is a great southern rock song. I don't know why it isn't popular, nothing wrong with it. I think this song is also a true story about Tennessee and how it is.
