knoxville girl

I fell in love

with the wrong kind of girl

she was born in Knoxville

but she been all round the world

drinks like a sailor

curses like one too

get her in your bed, boys,

she'll make a man out of you

she says she love me

sometimes I think she do

she's my Knoxville girl

she's like a fire burning out of control

and I'm a fireman running out of firehose

ain't been to Knoxville

but I sure would like to go

just to see the place

where my baby she call home

she's got a heart

hard as Knoxville brick

turn your back on her

and she get you with the kung-fu kick

she says she loves me

sometimes I think she do

But when she's gone, lord,

how I sing those lovesick blues

feel like wearing

a pair of concrete shoes

she says she loves me

sometimes I think she do

she's my Knoxville girl

 

I hear that love's the highest feeling

love's the lowest urge

all I know is that

I love my Knoxville girl
