The Del McCoury Band Nashville Cats Lyrics

Chorus:
Nashville Cats,
play clean as country water
Nashville Cats,
play wild as mountain dew
Nashville Cats,
been playin' since they's babies
Nashville Cats,
get work before they're two

Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two guitar pickers in Nashville
And they can pick more notes than the number of ants on a Tennessee anthill
Yeah, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two guitar cases in Nashville
And anyone that unpacks his guitar can play twice as better than I will

Chorus:

Yeah, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a musical proverbial knee-high
When I heard a couple new-sounding tunes on the tubes and they blasted me sky high
And the record man said every one is a yellow sun record from Nashville
And up North there ain't nobody buys them and I said, but I will

Chorus:

Well, there's sixteen thousand eight hundred twenty one mothers from Nashville
All their friends play music, and they ain't uptight if one of the kids will
Because it's custom made for any mother's son to be a guitar picker in Nashville
And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about the music and the mothers from Nashville

Chorus:
