My car broke down outside of Nashville.
But there was nothing I could do,
Because I'd run clean out of cash bills.
So I broke down and cried from missing you.
I thought you'd wait for me in Nashville.
I should have known you'd be untrue.
'Cause it ain't like you to be bashful
About taking up with someone new.
I thought my dreams were there in Nashville.
But all my dreams were not to be.
The last I heard you'd gone to Asheville
With someone you loved more than me.
I'm never going back to Nashville.
The wounds you left ain't healed yet.
But when I'm sipping from my mash still,
It makes it easy to forget.
These days you're easy to forget.
