Help me Merle, I'm breakin' out in a Nashville rash
It's a-looking like I'm fallin in the cracks
I'm too country now for country, just like Johnny Cash
Help me Merle, I'm breakin' out in a Nashville rash

Shoulda known it when they closed the Opry down
Things are bound to change in that town
You can't grow when you rip the roots out of the ground
Looks like that Nashville rash is getting' 'round

Chorus

Ain't it funny how things can really change
Rock and roll back in the 70's are country hits today
Breaks my heart to see my heros fadin' away
The victims of Nashville rash, it's Nashville's ways

Chorus 2:

Help me Merle, I'm breakin' out in a Nashville rash
It's a-looking like I'm fallin in the cracks
I'm too country now for country, just like Johnny Cash
And Buck Ownes and Faron Young and Johnny Bush
Ad Johnny Paycheck and Charley Pride and Loretta Lynn, Mmmmmmm
Help me Merle, I'm breakin' out in a Nashville rash

Aw good god it's gonna be the death of us
