about

Playing out in Nashville bars isn't necessarily the best experience...

lyrics

[E]these words may not [B] mean nothing [E][B]
[A]cause i can't write [E]good at all
[E]and rhymin ain't [B]my thing you know
[A]as i sit here in this honkey tonk [B]

there's a table in the corner,
with my name carved in the wood
and that pretty bar stool cowgirl
ain't never looked so good.

chorus
{soc}
it's Friday night in Nashville
and closing time is near
well i've got forty bucks, a headache and a beer.
{eoc}

instrumental

don't make some crap request tonight
won't play it like i should
my piano, she won't treat me right
but the band is playing good

her name is Liza Jane, and
hits a bad note time to time
won't get her fixed too soon, you know
and the keys can't read my mind

I got troubles that needs fixin
and duct tape can't repair
don't know my worst affliction
the reasons aren't so clear

pre-ch
it's Friday night in Nashville
got fans that I admire
cause my best friend's in this bottle
and there's no one in this bar

well it's Friday night in Nashville
and closing time is near
well i've got forty bucks, a headache and a beer.
