Waylon Jennings Nashville Bum Lyrics

Last updated:

D
I've been-- chasin' the big wheels
G D
All over Nashville
A
Waitin' for my big break to come
D
Livin' on ketchup soup, homemade
G D
Crackers and KoolAid
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
A7 D
I'm a Nashville bum

G
I look good in cowboy clothes
D
And I sing through my nose
A
Webb said "That's the way to get 'er done"
D
I smoke good old PA
G D
Like the Opry stars, they say
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
A7 D
I'm a Nashville bum

E
Well, a friend of a friend of mine
A E
Is a friend of art divines
B
And he finally got me on the Opry show
E
I walked out like a star
A E
Tripped and busted my guitar
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
B7 E
I'm a Nashville bum

A
Well now, here's a song I wrote
E
By myself, note for note
B
With a lot of help, if I make Number One
E
You can change a word or two
A E
And I'll give half of it to you
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
B7 E
I'm a Nashville bum
Yes, I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
B7 E
I'm a Nashville bum
