West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown

Jimmy Buffett

Intro: C F G C F G

 CFGC
 Standin' on side of the Highway 4 exit
 CFGC
Lady in a tie-dye with a bag by her side
 CFGC
 Not really lookin' like anything special
 CFGC
Saw Tennessee tags and she waved for a ride

Sat right beside me as the 'meter hit sixty
'Splainin' her travels and her family background
When she got through, I could not help but thinkin'
She's a long way from the west Nashville grand ballroom gown

Chorus:
 GDG
     Father had money and her mother had love
 DG
     Channeled entirely to her dear sister Dove
 DG
     Twenty-two years in society's plan
 FD
     Was cancelled with a swing of her dear mother's hand

Six hours later, we hit Cincinatti
Yawnin' she woke and then asked where we were
When she found out, she said, "I must be goin'"
This close to Nashville was too close for her

So I stopped by the roadside and I gave her five dollars
She took it then kissed me and gave me a note
She told me just to read it and mail it Nashville
On old looseleaf paper to her mother she wrote:

Chorus:
She said: Mama, I'm fine, if you happen to wonder
I don't have much money but I still get around
I haven't made church in near thirty-six Sundays
So fuck all those west Nashville grand ballroom gowns
(she's a long way from the west Nashville grand ballroom gown)
