Guitar Town
By Jason Boland

Hey pretty baby are you ready for me
Yeah it's your good rockin' daddy down from Tennessee
Well, I'm just outta Austin bound for San Antone
With the radio blastin' and the bird dog on
There's a speed trap up ahead in Selma town
But no local yokel's gonna shut me down
Cause me and the boys got this rig unwound
               D                         C      G 
And we've come a thousand miles from the guitar town

C  D  G

Nothin' ever happened round my home town
And I ain't the kind to just hang around
But I heard someone callin' my name one day
And I followed that voice down the lost highway
Everybody told me you can't get far
Everbody told me you can't get far on thirty seven dollars and a jap guitar
Now I'm smokin' into Texas with the hammer down
And a rockin' little combo from the guitar town

Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault
C                            G
Love to hear the steel belts hummin' on the asphalt
Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop
C                          D 
Stumble in the restaurant, wonderin' why I don't stop

Well I gotta keep rockin' while I still can
Got a two-pack habit and a motel tan
When my boots hit the boards, Iím a brand new man
With my back to the riser I make my stand
Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight
I'm loadin' up and rollin' out of here tonight
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
And I'll take you back with me to the guitar town

I think its supposed to be.....
and we've come a thousand miles from the
guitar town.

This is, of course, written, and one of the most well known, songs by Steve Earle!
