lyrics

Well we like our home cooking but we don’t like it strange
that’s why we’re all riding the electric range
yeah everybody here in Nashville is afraid of the gas
except when we’re huffing or snorting up glass
oh burn victim daughters no not in Nashville I say
all of you fathers take your burn victim daughters
with their hideous scars and sail ‘em away
everything’s under control I got conductor coils on the top of my stove
oh Nashville oh Lord you don’t mind the football team oiling up your name
but your corn cobs can’t be fired by not by an electric flame
you desire an electric flame

There’s a pillar of fire in the town of your birth
there’s a tape of the tide that will cover the earth
there’s a sinner who sings that the state is a bomb
there’s a man or a king who has eyes for his mom
there’s a pinstriper’s business sense spreading this ignorance
fearing the decadence hating the orient
oh burn victim daughters no not in Nashville I say
all of you fathers take your burn victim daughters
with their hideous scars and sail em away
get away from it all at the Cape they showed Ron Howard’s ‘Backdraft’ and I got it on tape
oh Nashville oh Lord talk of electric shock won’t fuck your day
but the rest is assured they’re in stitches every time that you say
we were bitches to the old TVA
in a similar fashion they have taken my wife
there’s a criminal passion at the end of my life
