Nashville

Indigo Girls

 (intro)                        

 AE
As I drive from your pearly gates
 DD
I realize that I just can't stay
 AE
All those mountains, they kept you locked inside
 DD
And hid the truth from my slighted eyes
 EE
   I came to you with a half-open heart
 DD
 Dreams upon my back, illusions of a brand new start

 AE
Nashville, can't I carry the load?
 DD
Is it my fault I can't reap what I sow?
 AE
Nashville, did you give me half a chance
 DDA
With your southern style, and your hidden dance away
 EDD
Dance away, now you dance away   

All those voices, they whisper through my walls
They talk of falling fast, they say I'm losing it all
They say I'm running blind to a love of my own
But I'll be walking proud I'm saving what I still own
I fell on my knees to kiss your land
But you are so far down, and I can't even see to stand

Nashville, you forgot the human race
You see with half a mind what colors hide the face
Nashville, I'd like to know your fate
I'd like to stay a while but I've seen your lowered state today
I've seen them today, honey I swear I've seen 'em today

 AEDDAEDD
 (instrumental)                 

Now I'm leaving, I've got all these debts to pay
You know we all have our dues, I'll pay in some other place
I'd never ask that you pay me back
We all arrive with more, I left with less than I had
Your town is made for people passing through
A last chance for a cause I thought I knew

But Nashville, you tell me what you are gonna do
With all your Southern style, it'll never pull you through
Nashville, I can't place no blame
But if you forget my face, I'll never call your name again
No, never again, no, never, never again

E (hold) E (held)
I fell on my knees to kiss your land
n.c. n.c.
But you are so far down, and I can't even see to stand

And Nashville, you forgot the human race
You see with half a mind what colors hide the face
Nashville, I'd like to know your fate
I'd like to stay a while but I've seen your lowered state today
I've seen 'em today, honey, I swear I've seen 'em today
I'm running away, I'm running away, I'm running, I'm running, I'm running away
