(Bob McDill)

I went to see my honeydew,
She lived just down the way
I got stuck and the truck froze up
And I only got half way.

Sittin’ here on the muddy road,
Stuck here all alone
The rain won’t stop it’s a beatin’ on the top
And I should have stayed at home.

I wish I was in Nashville,
Guitar on my back
Maybe someday I will
Ride in the back of a big Cadillac. uh huh.

Must have been a half a day,
Before I got back home
The roads all mud the creeks gonna flood
And I’m here all alone

Sure feels good a gettin’ back
To my old shack again
But I’m all soaked and the radios broke
And the rain keeps pouring in.

I wish I was in Nashville,
Guitar on my back
Maybe someday I will
Ride in the back of a big Cadillac. uh huh.

--- Instrumental ---

I wish I was in Nashville,
Guitar on my back
Maybe someday I will
Ride in the back of a big Cadillac. uh huh...
