lebanon, tennessee lyrics – ron sexsmith

i’m going down to lebanon, tennessee
from where i stand, it’s as good a place as any
don’t know anybody there
and n*body knows me

there’ll be a job in lebanon, tennessee
i’ll work on a farm, i’ll work in some factory
and i’ll buy myself a home down there
you can get one pretty cheap

get off the bus on the border of town
head in from the east
walk into a bar, take a seat in the corner
be a man of mystery

folks don’t treat you mean in lebanon, tennessee
but like a human being, they’ll take you in off the street
they’ll bring you in their homes down there
and give you something to eat, yeah

i’m going down to lebanon, tennessee
