Well, I'm a gonna get on that ol' turnpike and I'm gonna ride
I'm a gonna leave this town till you decide
Which one you want the most them Opry stars or me
Milwaukee here I come from Nashville, Tennessee.

Milwaukee is a-where we were before we came here
Workin' in a bruerry making the finest beer
You come to me on payday night said let's go to Tennessee
So we came down to Nashville to the Grand Ole Opry.

Well, we were watchin' TV, Ernest Tubb was singin' loud
I said that's the man for me, I love him there's no doubt
I'm leavin' you and a-goin' now to find out where he's at
And if I can't get him, I'll settled for that bluegrass Lester Flatt.

Oh, I'm a gonna get on that ol' turnpike and I'm gonna ride
I'm a gonna leave this town till you decide
Which one you love the best me or Jerry Lee
Milwaukee here I come from Nashville, Tennessee.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm a goin' now and trade my ol' Ford for a Olds
Huh, I might get all drunked up and trade it for the Rolls
But there's a-one thing I know for sure I'll always be blue
There ain't no way get drunk enough to stop lovin' you.

So, I'm a gonna get on that ol' turnpike and I'm gonna ride
I'm gonna leave this town till you decide
Which one you love the best me or Jerry Lee
Milwaukee here I come from Nashville, Tennessee.

Oh, Milwaukee here I come from Nashville, Tennessee...
