GUITAR TOWN (Steve Earle) Steve Earle - 1985 Emmylou Harris - 1991 Hey, pretty baby, are you ready for me It's your good rockin' daddy down from Tennessee I'm just out of Austin bound for San Antone With the radio blastin' and the bird dog on There's a speed trap up ahead in Selma town But no local yokel gonna shut me down 'Cause me and my boys got this rig unwound And we've come a thousand miles from a guitar town Nothin' ever happened round my hometown And I ain't the kind to just hang around But I heard someone callin' my name one day And I followed that voice down the lost highway Everybody told me you can't get far On thirty-seven dollars and a Jap guitar Now I'm smokin' into Texas with the hammer down And a rockin' little combo from the guitar town Hey, pretty baby, don't you know it ain't my fault I love to hear the steel belts hummin' on the asphalt Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop Stumble in the restaurant wonderin' why I don't stop Hey, I gotta keep rockin' while I still can I got a two pack habit and a motel tan When my boots hit the boards, I'm a brand new man With my back to the riser I make my stand Hey, pretty baby, won't you hold me tight I'm loadin' up and rollin' out o' here tonight One of these days I'm gonna settle down And take you back with me to the guitar town (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2012)
