Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Nashville Tennessee  Frank Turner




But I was r[C]aised in middle [D]England, and not in [B7]Nashville Tennes[Em]see,
C D G*
And the only person in my band is me.

A simple scale on an old guitar, and a punk rock sense of honesty.
I cannot fail, I've got this far with no knowledge of mid-west geography.

And if I knew anywhere where I could drive in a straight line
For hours in the desert, I'd drive for hours at a time.
But I was raised in middle England, not in Nashville Tennessee,
And the only person in this car is me.

[Am]   And yes I'm in [C]four-four [G]time, and yes I use [D]cheap cheap [Am]rhymes,
C G*
But I try to make a sound my own.
[Am]   I know I don't b[C]reak new [G]ground, many have [D]travelled this [Am]sound,
C G*
But I try to make it sound like home.

G (hold) G (hold)
Well I've been to Texas state, I didn't think it was that fucking great,
And Nebraska is just a bunch of songs,
Holloway and Hampshire where I belong.
And I don't know anybody who plays pedal steel guitar,
All the city roads are twisted and I do not own a car.
I was raised in middle England, not in Nashville Tennessee,
And the only thing I'm offering is me.

(the bit above after the two Gs is the same as 'if i knew...' etc)
