Nashville Burnin' Lyrics

Did you hear about the flood up there in Nashville
The Cumberland River rose is like a titan from its cage
And all the country stars had to find another home
Some are saying is the end of an age
Some have said that it's the end of an age

She said to me I think it's time to head south
Visit my cousin Katrina down in Shreveport
She's a pretty nice girl but she's got a pretty big mouth
Never has been one to turn the other cheek
Never has been able to turn the other cheek
She talk to me all night long about what's wrong with her country
And all her plans to fix the USA
But not one time did she ask for my opinion
Not that it really had very much to say
Not that I really had anything to say

That was the night that Nashville was burning
And all weekend long there was a mad torrential rain
The old-timer said "I've never seen a flood like this before
And I hope to god I'll never see it again
Yeah I hope I'll never see it again"

Got a call from my uncle in East Memphis
He's been making his living in the unemployment line
He called to check up but I could tell he wanted more
When he asked me I just said I'm doing fine
When he asked me I just told him I'm doing fine
He lost his job the summer before my freshman year
It nearly did him in that very same week
But he dusted himself off and scrounged around to find his pride
I wish I was there to help him to his feet
I wish someone was there to help him do his feet

That was the night that Nashville was burning
And all weekend long there was a mad torrential rain
The old-timer said "I've never seen a flood like this before
And I hope to god I'll never see it again
Yeah I hope I'll never see it again"

Don't worry about me I'm just stuck here at college
A little place of Murfreesboro Road
I don't know what I'll do with one degree or two
I'm just praying tomorrow I'll be able to make it home
I just pray one day that I'll be going home

Did you hear about the flood up there in Nashville?
The Cumberland River rose is like a titan from its cage
And all the country stars had to find another home
Some are saying is the end of an age
Some have said that it's the end of an age
