South Nashville Blues - Steve Earle

I went downtown, it was just to ease my pain
I ended up out walkin' in the rain

I took my pistol and a hundred dollar bill
I had everything i needed to get me killed

Southside girls, they suit me just fine
As long as i got money they don't whine

The devil lives on lewis street i swear
I seen him rockin' in his rockin' chair

I start way up top of lewis street
And i walk down to the end
I start way up top and i walk down to the end
I go way down in the bottoms
And i come back up again

Now mama told me, papa too
They both talked ??til they turned blue
But i got them ol' south nashville blues again
I won't be satisfied until they lock me up again
