I see your van you're a guitar man it's written all over your face
To make it big you quit your gig a playin' bass at the airbase
You've come to town you've been turned down but it's just a question of taste
Don't think you're too good for country music just because you can rock and roll
Likely as not your licks are hot but you won't work much here in Nashville
You're really keen on BB King but they don't cut him here in Nashville
And if you don't pick them country licks you can bet somebody else will
Don't think you're too good for country music just because you can rock and roll
[ ac.guitar ]
(Pickin' good pickin' good pickin' good sound like hell but pickin' good)
You're really hot on ZZ Tott but you ain't doin' any session
Your licks are neat but you won't eat until you learn one little lesson
You boogie good and I knew you could but they don't boogie much in Nashville
Don't think you're too good for country music just because you can rock and roll
