West Nashville Boogie Lyrics

I was born in the city
I was born in the city
I was born in the city
I was raised up right around here

My daddy's down in the workhouse
Daddy's down in the workhouse
Daddy's down in the workhouse
Mama say ain't no way he's coming back here

I went to school with some rich kids
I went to school with some rich kids
I went to school with some rich kids
'Cause I bussed me half way across town

Call us white trash and no count
Call us white trash and no count
Call us white trash and no count
Say there wasn't no use in me staying round

I'm goin' down to the corner
I'm goin' down to the corner
I'm goin' down to the corner
Mama don't you wait for me to come in

Nothin' happens till midnight
Nothin' happens till midnight
Nothin' ever happens till midnight
When boys get restless bout then and they rock

Sometimes feel like I'm drowning
Sometimes feel like I'm drowning
Sometimes feel like I'm drowning
And I don't know what I'm gonna do

I got a razor in my pocket
I got a razor in my pocket
I got a razor in my pocket and
I got me a pistol hid down by the school

Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville
Lord get me out of West Nashville
