      Lyrics for Rosanne Cash - "Tennessee Flat Top Box"

      In a little cabaret
      In a south Texas boarder town
      Sat a boy and his guitar
      And the people came from all around
      And all the girls
      From there to Austin
      Were slippin' away from home
      And puttin' jewelry in hock to take the trip
      To go and listen
      To the little dark-haired boy who played the
      Tennessee flat top box
      And he would play

      Well he couldn't ride or wrangle
      And he never cared to make it dime
      But give him his guitar
      And he'd be happy all the time
      And all the girls
      From nine to ninety
      Were snappin' fingers
      Tappin' toes
      And beggin' him don't stop
      And hypnotized
      And fascinated
      By the little dark-haired boy who played the
      Tennessee flat top box
      And he would play

      Then one day he was gone
      And no one ever saw him 'round
      He vanished like the breeze
      They forgot him in the little town
      But all the girls
      Still dreamed about him
      And hung around
      The caberet until the doors were locked
      And then one day
      On the hit parade
      Was a little dark-haired boy who played the
      Tennessee flat top box
      And he would play
