  • It wasn't easy leaving Memphis
    but I needed me a gig
    and I had this crazy beautiful feeling, man
    I was on the cusp of something big
    So I hit the interstate to Nashville
    and I made my noble stand
    paying off some old karma
    with the Stacy Mitchhart Band

    Cos I'm a Music City blow-in
    this is where I need to be
    I'm one part psychedelic gypsy
    three parts blue-eyed refugee
    I've come a long way from Graceland
    and you can quote me free
    My soul is in Memphis
    my ass is in Nashville Tennessee

    I sat in with some cats
    and word soon snuck around
    that the dude they know as Goldilocks
    has the wildest organ in town
    I'm still dressing out of Lansky's
    so if you see me man, don't shoot
    I'm just prowling on down Music Row
    in my Willie Mitchell suit

    Yeah I'm a Music City blow-in...

    Well I wake up every morning
    with words of praise upon my lips
    praise for the pioneers and outlaws
    that made this city hip
    for the men who made Nashville Nashville
    and the women behind the men
    who put the funk back into country
    and made Nashville great again

    I'm a Music City blow-in... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
