Verse 1:
D G DShe was fresh out of college
D G DThe first one in her family to go
Bm G Dand California seemed like heaven,
G A DPulaski, Tennessee was her home
Repeat Intro Verse 2:
D G DShe worked on losing her southern accent
D G Dand turned her back on her Baptist ways
Bm G DShe bought some clothes that barely
D G covered her fair skinned body,
A DWent to Nashville and caught a plane
G DWell the clouds rushed beneath her
Bm Aas the LA smog filled the air
G D BmAnd she smiled when the airlock opened
G A D The Pacific breeze blew through her hair
Repeat Intro Verse 3:
D G DShe thought about the boys from Alabama
D G DWho came into town every Friday night
Bm G Dand drank beer out of big glass quart bottles
G A Dand left their trail of blood and tears behind
G DShe thought the men in California would be different
Bm AShe'd grown up watching them on her TV
G D BmBut the men she came to know in California
G A DLeft her longing for Pulaski, Tennessee
Repeat Intro Bridge:
Bm AGood ideas always start with a full glass
G D Aand just breathing here can make a girl's nose bleed
G D BmDreams here live and die just like a stray dog on a
G A Ddirt road somewhere in Tennessee
Verse 4:
D G DThe storefronts all filled up with eyeballs
D G DAs the policemen clear out the street
Bm G DFor a line of cars with their headlights burning
G A DDriving slow through Pulaski, Tennessee
