O Little Town In Tennessee

Oh little town in Tennessee, how much has rent increased
Above thy little GNP inflation ain’t so sweet

Yet to thy streets and suburbs, the writers still do flock
With hopes and fears and cans of beer to sing their country rock

Hank III was born of Junior, Bocephus some might say
And Willie Waylon Johnny we name check to this day

But what about Rob Stanley or young John Allingham
Well praises sing at Water Spring, ‘cause we still give a damn

Oh little town in Tennessee, how much has rent increased
Above thy little GNP inflation ain’t so sweet

Yet to thy streets and suburbs, the writers still do flock
With hopes and fears and cans of beer to sing their country rock
