[Intro]
G  C  G  D  G

[Verse 1]
G C GI had a dog named Banjo and a girl named Muffin
D GI just blew in from Texas, I didn't know nothing
C GBut I found my way around this town with a friend I made named Guy
D GWho loved Susanna, and so did I
[Verse 2]
G C GNow, there was this run down shack on Acklen Avenue that I shared with Skinny Dennis
D GAnd a poet name of Richard Dobson who had a novel he'd never finish
C GThat's when Johnny Rodriguez, David Olney and Steve Earle first came through
D GAnd every other guitar bum whose name I never knew
[Chorus]
C G D GOld school Nashville, Harlan Howard, Bob McDill
C G D GTom T. Hall, go drink your fill, and blow us all away
[Instrumental] G C G D G [Verse 3]
G C GNow, there was this tight-rope-walker who called herself "The Queen of Poughkeepsie"
D GWho ran away from the circus with some roustabout redneck gypsy
C GNow, they were Townes Van Zandt fans and prone to combustion
D GThey fought like dogs in Spanish and made love in Russian
[Bridge]
Em D C GI wish Newberry and Buck White would drop on by the house tonight
Em D C D Things have changed 'round here you bet, but it don't seem much better yet
[Verse 4]
G C GI first met Willie Nelson with some friends at a party
D GI was twenty-two years old and he must've been pushing forty
C GNow, there was hippies and reefer and God knows what all, I was drinking pretty hard
D GI played him this shitty song I wrote, then puked out in the yard
[Chorus]
C G D GOld school Nashville, Harlan Howard, Bob McDill
C G D GTom T. Hall, go drink your fill, and blow us all away
C G D GTom T. Hall, go drink your fill, and blow us all away
[Outro] G C G D G
