Nashville - Lyrics

I've climbed up the Eiffel tower,
Floated down the river Nile,
Seen the bull fights in Madrid,
And watched those Señoritas smile
Been a tourist with my camera
At the ruins of Old Rome
But the pictures in my mind
Are all of home

I've seen the opera house in Sydney
And the temples of Bombay
Watched the seagulls skim the white caps
Over San Francisco bay
Seen the palm trees of Tahiti
And the sands of Waikiki
But there is just one place
I'm wishing I could be:

My heart keeps going back to Nashville
That's the only place for me
My love is waitin' there in Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee

They're making music down in Nashville
Just the way it ought to be
I gotta get that jet back home to Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee

I've seen the tower of London,
The dykes of Amsterdam
The Taj Mahal, the Berlin wall,
But through it all no matter where I am

My heart keeps going home to Nashville
That's the only place for me
My love is waiting there in Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee

There's a new show at the Ryman
Everyone's a Titans fan
They're still selling out the Opry
It's still Old and it's still Grand

They're making music down in Nashville
Chet's a-picking one for me
I gotta get that jet back home to Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee
