about

In 2008 I visited Nashville for the first time & had the brilliant idea to attempt a night of bourbon barhopping, which is essentially the asinine activity of sampling at least one shot of bourbon from each bar hopped, as it were. Though in my naiveté, I failed to comprehend just how many bars the infamous Music City Strip has (for those unaware, the strip is nearly all bars). Needless to say, this made for an eventful evening. Nashville Skyline’s narrative isn’t necessarily a reenactment of that experience, but rather an homage to the breed of NashVegas barflies I encountered there.

lyrics

oh, the city lights, the way they shine
up here on the Nashville skyline
with a whiskey drink in tune to a country song
it’s how I’ll spend my time

it’s how I’ll spend my time

songs of wayward love fill the smoky air
& I can’t bear to hear the sound
when with such things I compare

it’s how I’ll spend my time
wishing you were mine

so I’ll drink to you, my dear
for when the answers are unclear
I’ll drink in tribute to my blues
the blues I have because of you

I’ll wait around until all the bar doors close
& order one last round
drink it all before I go
& make my way to stumble home

it’s how I’ll spend my time
wishing you were mine

so I’ll drink to you, my dear
for when the answers are unclear
I’ll drink in tribute to my blues
the blues I have because of you
