West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown  Jimmy Buffett

[C] [F] [G] [C]  
[C] [F] [G] [C]  
[C]Standing on the [F]side of the [G]Highway 4 [C]exit
A lady in [F]tie-dye, a [G]bag by her [C]side
Not really [F]looking like [G]anything [C]special
Saw Tennessee [F]tags and she [G]waved for a [C]ride
Sat right be[F]side me as the [G]meter hit [C]sixty
Explaining her [F]travels and her [G]family back[C]ground
When she got [F]through, I could [G]not help but [C]thinking
She's a long way from the [F]West Nashville [G]Grand Ballroom [C]gown
[G]Her father had money and her [D]mother had [G]love
Channeled entirely to her [D]dear sister [G]Dove
Twenty-two years in so[D]ciety's [G]plan
Was cancelled with a swing of her [F]dear mother's [D]hand
[C]Six hours [F]later, we [G]hit Cincin[C]nati
Yawning she [F]woke and then [G]asked where we [C]were
When she found [F]out, she said, "[G]I must be [C]going"
This close to [F]Nashville was [G]too close for [C]her
[F] [G] [C]  
So I stopped by the [F]roadside and I [G]gave her five [C]dollars
She took it then [F]kissed me and [G]gave me a [C]note
She told me just to [F]read it then [G]mail it in [C]Nashville
On old looseleaf [F]paper to her [G]mother she [C]wrote
She said, "[G]Mama, I'm fine, if you [D]happen to [G]wonder
I don't have much money but I [D]still get a[G]round
I haven't made church in near [D]thirty-six [G]Sundays
So f**k all those West Nashville [D]Grand Ballroom [D]gowns"
[C] [F] [G] [C]  
Yeah, she's a long way from the [F]West Nashville [G]Grand Ballroom [C]gown
