West Nashville Boogie Lyrics - Steve Earle

Review The Song (1)



I was born in the city
I was born in the city
And I was raised up right around here
Daddy's down in the workhouse
Daddy's down in the workhouse
Daddy's down in the workhouse
Mama say ain't no way he's coming back here
Went to school with some rich kids
Went to school with some rich kids
Went to school with some rich kids
Bussed me half way across town
Call us white trash and no count
Call us white trash and no count
Call us white trash and no count
Say there wasn't no use in me staying round
I'm goin' down to the corner
sponsored links
I'm goin' down to the corner
I'm goin' down to the corner
Don't you wait for me to come in
Nothin' happens till midnight
Nothin' ever happens till midnight
Nothin' happens till midnight
The boys get restless bout then
Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning
Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning
Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
I got a razor in my pocket
I got a razor in my pocket
I got a razor in my pocket and
I got a pistol hid down by the school
Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville

Best damn blues song ever | Reviewer: S Berry | 4/7/2005

Steve Earle went and done it!
Just when I thought I was tired of the blues and that it all sounded the same to me, some guitar player I meet in Sante Fe Texas, (Bill), turns me on to "West Nashville Boogie".

Sure wish I could find (Bill) & thank him again cause now I've got a whole new library of songs to check out in Steve Earl.
Been playing music in these Houston bars for years and I cant believe I never heard him before.

Thank you Bill..... Thank you Steve Earle.Keep Rockin 'dem blues.
