[Bridge]
Ooh ooh ooh oh oh.

[Verse 1]
We live in a southern city,
We drink that ice and bourbon whiskey.
And you got time on your hands,
I’d advise you change your route-less plans.

[Verse 2]
And the vast Mississippi,
Oh makes me dream of Tennessee.
And if you’re tired of champagne,
We’ll meet you there by the Dixie train.

[Bridge 2]
Ooh ooh,
Ooh oh oh.

[Verse 3]
From the Cumberland valley,
Just up from Nashville, Music City.
Took The Gulch to The Station,
Away from downtown temptation.

[Verse 4]
Waking up with a sour head,
Got to eat up your grits n’ corn bread.
Well that’s what our new friend said,
Under the iron bridge by the railroad bed.

[Bridge]
Ooh ooh ooh oh oh.

No Pontiac no Chevrolet,
It’s a shotgun loco all the way.
To New Orleans via Pontchartrain,
Memphis we’ll see you again.

[Verse 5]
Tall buildings rising up high,
Reminds me of a time that’s gone by.
Good ole boys on the TV screen,
With their boot-cut jeans and Robert E. Lee.

[Bridge 3]
Ooh ooh ooh oh oh.
Ahh ahh ahh ah oh.

[Verse 6]
Back in the big country city,
Where the broad avenue takes me.
Up to the blurred neon signs,
Roach stompers come in three of a kind.

[Bridge 4]
Ooh ooh ooh ooh.
