Got me a ticket to Nashville, Tennesee.
Just can’t live without the Music City
where dobros are crying and steel guitars moan.
Gotta go to Nashville to make it my home!
Dancin´ in the footsteps of Waylon, Cash and Reeves,
oh, and don’t you forget Patsy!
That music so proud made a man out of me,
I’ll soon be in dear Nashville and I ain’t playing for free!
Soon I’ll be at the Grand Ole Opry Show,
My mum and dad will watch, I’ll let them know!
My picture upon the Hall of Fame!
Yes, sir, soon they’ll all cry out my name.
Hey, Music City, your son is coming home!
So please take me down to General Jackson!
Then I’ll see some friends down on old Music Row,
sure they’ll have some room for my songs on their show!
Soon I’ll be at the Grand Ole Opry Show!
My mum and dad will watch – I’ll let them know!
My picture upon the Wall of Fame,
Yes, sir, – soon they’ll all cry out my name!
