GUEST, Lyr Add: songs by Uncle Dave Macon (174* d) Lyr Add: NASHVILLE (Uncle Dave Macon) 04 Mar 01

Good thread. Art Thieme has a Uncle Dave Song called "Nashville" on his "The Older I get the Better I Was" CD. I am surprised that this is not in the DT. I wouldn't mind having the chords for it.

The lyrics are:

(Uncle Dave Macon)

Oh, the roosters they lay eggs in Nashville,
yes the roosters they lay eggs in Nashville.
The roosters they lay eggs, they're as big as old beer kegs,
they have whiskers on their legs
in Nashville

They chew tobacco thin in Nashville,
yes they chew tobacco thin in Nashville
They chew tobacco thin and it dribbles down their chin,
and they lick it back again
in Nashville.

Oh potatoes they grow small in Nashville,
yes, potatoes.....
The potatoes they grow small and they pick them in the fall
and they eat them coats and all
in Nashville

The women dress knee high in Nashville,
The women dress knee high,
and as they go walking by
they make the old men cry
in Nashville

Herbert Hoover was elected in Nashville,
Herbert Hoover was elected and Al Smith he was rejected
but he is highly respected
in Nashville.

If you want to get a drink in Nashville
If you want to get a drink, give the Democrats a wink
You'll get it quicker than you think
in Nashville.

It is a great song and Art does a good job of it with his own banjo accompanyment.
