Neon of Nashville  The Flatlanders

The Flatlanders - Neon Of Nashville
[E]She was raised on a river
By the [A]chapel where the c[G#m]hruch bells [F#m]peal
[E]between a line of peach trees
and a [A]brown [G#m]tobacco [F#m]field
[E]Her eyes shown turquois
And her [A]hair was a [G#m]water [F#m]fall
and [B7]everyone from miles around
swore that she'd go [E]far
T[A]hey sing of her [B7]beauty in [E]georgia
[A]And on the c[B7]arolna c[E]oast
[A]Down in the [B7]neon of nash[E]ville
[F#m]They almost seem to sing of her like she was a g[B7]host[A] [E]
The city lights lured her
and the glitter of the silver stage
Her beauty was so astounding
And it made her too easily made
High society dragged her down
where the loneliness was to much to bear
she faded from the lime light
And noone knew just where
Someone said they saw her
Years later at the bottom of main
A fifth of whiskey in her hand
Codine in her brain
When they hummed her song about the peach trees
And a brown tobacco field
her eyes grew distant she whispered
There's the chapel where the church bells peal
