Shot Down in Music City © Gary Orphey (V1) Headed long distance to Texas—Dallas to be exact Boarded a smelly old Greyhound—I ain’t ever looking back I’m sittin’ next to a wino—with brown bag wine on his breath A cryin’ baby in front of me—a preacher talking me to death (V 2) I got thirty-two cents in my pocket—I’m gonna’ starve on this trip Unless I can find a good woman—or steal a few restaurant tips I managed to keep my guitar—but I lost most of my pride If my dear you've forgotten me—I might as well have died (Chorus) I got shot down in Music City—I struck out in Nashville town I was so close I could taste it—I was a king without a crown; Maybe this is a good song— but it won’t see the light of day I got shot down in Music City—I struck out in Nashville today (Instrumental Bridge) (V 3) I'm going back to my home town—tired of my zero-sum game Where stars light the sky at night—and people remember my name Goodbye to you— Music Row—Good bye to the Bluebird Café I’m headed long distance to Texas—maybe I’ll be back someday (Chorus) I got shot down in Music City—I struck out in Nashville town I was so close I could taste it—I was a king without a crown; Maybe this is a good song—but it won’t see the light of day I got shot down in Music City—I struck out in Nashville today
