West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown Lyrics - Jimmy Buffett

Review The Song (1)

West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown
By: Jimmy Buffett
Standin' on side of the Highway 4 exit
A lady in tie-dye, a bag by her side
Not really lookin' like anything special
Saw Tennessee tags and she waved for a ride

Sat right beside me as the meter hit sixty
'Splainin' her travels and her family background
When she got through I could not help but thinkin'
She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown

Father had money and her mother had love
Channelled entirely to her dear sister Dove
Twenty-two years in society's plan
Was cancelled in the swing of her dear mother's hand

Six hours later we hit Cincinnati
Yawnin', she woke and then asked where we were
When she found out, she said I must be goin'
This close to Nashville was too close for her

So I stopped by the roadside and I gave her five dollars
She took it then kissed me and gave me a note
She told me just to read it then mail it in Nashville
On old loose-leaf paper to her mother she wrote

She said, "Mama I'm fine if you happen to wonder
I don't have much money but I still get around
I haven't made church in near thirty-six Sundays
So fuck all those West Nashville grand ballroom gowns"

Yes she's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown

The circle burns clear fire yellow.
When I held her face. Which was pale,white,brown.She turned away. The girl of my dreams.She refused to acknowledge me. For my fear of heart. Take it away. Away
From my taste ,cause Im in this world of pain hurt,and rejection.CHloramine\Chloramine. Why do you Turn away? When I cry for me. I turned away only to find my eyes drip blood red to the ground
For my love chloramine , She turned her eyes . When I said goodbye to my love chloramine.I know I hurt you with my rash words.
But I hope we will make up for our past mistakes.
And I must say Im sorry about our departure.
I have eyes full of tears. The clouds are gray overhead . My garments are rainsoaked from my wanderings. I have wondered a thousand miles.
I sit alone with my head between my hands .And try to reconcile my lies. What is this I have come upon that hurts me so. Chloramine Dont turn around,cause Im trying to forget your beautiful face. Take it away!Away! From my pain and anguish.
Because I love you so . Chloramine !Dont cry!Dont cry! When I walk on bye. And forgive me for my lies.Consequences abound for my mistakes. I love you and will always love you Chloramine\chloramine
