     <----- 3X -------------------------|  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ doubled w/bass


        N[C]ashv[G7]ille c[C]ats, play clean as country water
        N[C]ashv[G7]ille c[C]ats, play wild as mountain dew
        N[C]ashv[G7]ille c[C]ats, been playin' since they's babies
        N[C]ashv[G7]ille c[C]ats, get work before they're two

Verse 1:

        Well, there's [C]1352 guitar p[G7]ickers in Nashville
        And they can [G7]pick more notes than the number of ants on a
             T[C]ennessee ant hill
        Yeah, there's 1352 guitar c[F]ases in Nashville
        And any[G7]one that unpacks his guitar can play twice as b[C]etter than
I will

Verse 2:

Well, I was just thirteen, you might say I was a musical
proverbial knee-high
When I heard a couple new-soundin' tunes on the tubes and they
blasted me sky-high
And the record man said every one was a yellow Sun record from
Nashville (historical note: Sun was in Memphis)
And up North here ain't nobody buys them, and I said "but I will"

(repeat chorus)

Verse 3:

Well, there's 16,821 mothers from Nashville
All their friends play music and they ain't uptight if one of the
kids will
Because it's custom made for any mother's son to be a guitar picker
in Nashville
And I sure am glad I had the chance to say a word about the music
and the mothers in Nashville

(repeat chorus)


(spoken:) Pick it...

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
