              C                
Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two

Mothers from Nashville

All their friends play music, and they ain't uptight

To be a guitar picker in Nashville
      G
And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about
                               C
The music and the mothers from Nashville
