I say how could this be
Left her back in Tennesse
Now there's a thousand miles between
I'm going out of my head
But I can't take back the words I said
Just to fill her empty bed
Said you can drag me back to Nashville
But you'll drag me back to Nashville dead
She wanted nothing more in her life
Than to see her name in lights
So I came along for the ride
But there was just no end
To the smokey bars and unpaid rent
Day job blues held by a thread
Oh You can drag me back to Nashville
But you'll drag me back to Nashville dead
North Dakota boy in Tennessee
That singin town had got the best of me
Oh yeah
And I lost my love to the dream
Looking back I lost a part of me
And so I said
You can drag me back to Nashville
But you'll drag me back to Nashville dead
I say how could this be
North Dakota boy in Tennessee
That singin town had got the best of me
Oh yeah
And I lost my love to the dream
Lookin back I lost a part of me
And so I said
You can drag me back to Nashville
But you'll drag me back to Nashville dead
Oh you can drag me back to Nashville
But you'll drag me back to Nashville dead
North Dakota boy in Tennessee
I say how could this be
North Dakota boy in Tennessee
