Waylon Jennings Nashville Bum Lyrics

I've been chasin' the big wheels
All over Nashville
Waitin' for my big break to come
Livin' on ketchup soup, homemade
Crackers and Kool Aid
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
I'm a Nashville bum
I look good in cowboy clothes
And I sing through my nose
Webb said "That's the way to get 'er done"
I smoke good old PA
Like the Opry stars, they say
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
I'm a Nashville bum

Well, a friend of a friend of mine
Is a friend of art divines
And he finally got me on the Opry show
I walked out like a star
Tripped and busted my guitar
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
I'm a Nashville bum
Well now, here's a song I wrote
By myself, note for note
With a lot of help, if I make Number One
You can change a word or two
And I'll give half of it to you
I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
I'm a Nashville bum
Yes, I'll be a star tomorrow, but today
