Intro:
C
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two

C
Well, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two
G
Guitar pickers in Nashville

And they can pick more notes than the number of ants
C
On a Tennessee anthill

Yeah, there's thirteen hundred and fifty two
F
Guitar cases in Nashville
G
And any one that unpacks his guitar could play
C C7
Twice as better than I will

G
Musical proverbial knee-high

When I heard a couple new-sounding tunes on the tubes
C
And they blasted me sky-high

And the record man said every one is a yellow Sun
F

G

C C7

C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two

C
Well, there's sixteen thousand eight hundred twenty one
G
Mothers from Nashville

All their friends play music, and they ain't uptight
C
If one of the kids will

Because it's custom made for any mother's son
F
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

C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play clean as country water
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, play wild as mountain dew
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, been playin' since they's babies
C G C C7
Nashville Cats, get work before they're two . . .
