Nashville, TN

Album: Starting Over (2020)
  • I met you when I had a dream
    Not so long ago, it seems
    We closed down a million bars
    Yeah, you and me, we've come so far
    You showed me how to write a song
    We wrote some right, we wrote some wrong
    I was down and out, you let me in
    At times you were my only friend

    So long, Nashville, Tennessee
    You can't have what's left of me
    And as far as I can tell
    It's high time, I wish you well
    You build me up, you set me free
    You tore down my memories
    So you be you and I'll be me
    So long, Nashville, Tennessee

    Now you won't miss me when I'm gone
    You're custom made for movin' on
    And time to time I'll pass you by
    Face that I don't recognize
    And who knows? Maybe years from now
    You'll be the one I think about
    But I just can't imagine that
    'Cause I'm not one for lookin' back

    So long, Nashville, Tennessee
    You can't have what's left of me
    And as far as I can tell
    It's high time, I wish you well
    You build me up, you set me free
    You tore down my memories
    So you be you and I'll be me
    So long, Nashville, Tennessee

    So long, Nashville, Tennessee
    You can't have what's left of me
    And as far as I can tell
    It's high time, I wish you well
    You build me up, you set me free
    You tore down my memories
    You're not who you used to be
    So long Nashville, Tennessee Writer/s: Chris Stapleton, Morgane Hayes
