West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown
(C) (F) (G)
(C) (F) (G)
(C) Standin' on the (F) side of the (G) Highway 4 (C) exit
Lady in a (F) tie-dye with a (G) bag by her (C) side
Not really (F) lookin' 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
'Splainin' her (F) travels and her (G) family back(C)ground
When she got (F) through, I could (G) not help but (C) thinkin'
She's a long way from the (F) West Nashville (G) Grand Ballroom (C) Gown
(G) 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 Cincina(C)tti
Yawnin' she (F) woke and then (G) asked where we (C) were
When she found (F) out, she said, (G) "I must be (C) goin'"
This close to (F) Nashville was (G) too close for (C) her
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 and (G) mail it to (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 fuck all those West Nashville (F) Grand ballroom (D) Gowns
She's a long way from the West Nashville (F) Grand Ballroom (G) Gown
