Guitar Town
Perf. Steve Earle

Hey pretty baby are you ready for me
Yes, you could ???????? daddy down from Tennessee
I've got over from San Antone
with the radio blastin' and the bird doggone
There's a speed trap up ahead in S???????? town
No local yokal's gonna shut me down
'Cos me and my boys got this rig unwound
And we've come a thousand miles from a Guitar Town.

Nothin' ever happened round my home town
I ain't the kind to just hang around
But I heard someone callin' my name one day
And I followed that voice down a lost highway
Every body told me you can't get far
On thirty-seven dollars and a chap guitar
Now I'm smokin' into Texas with a hammer down
And I rock a little cowboy from Guitar Town.

Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault
Love to hear the steel bells hummin' on the asphalt
Wake up in the middle of the night at a truck stop
Stumble in a restaurant wonderin' why I don't stop
Well, I got to keep rockin' while I still can
Got a two-pack habit and motel tan
When my boots hit the boards I'm a brand new man
With my back to the horizon I make my stand

Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight
I'm loadin, I'm rollin out of here tonight
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
and take you back with me to the Guitar Town.
