Tennessee Flat Top Box Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '61 Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP / Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

In a little cabaret in a south Texas border town
Sat a boy and his guitar and the people came from all around
And all the girls from there to Austin
Were slippin' way from home and puttin' jewelry in hock
To take the trip to go and listen
To the little dark haired boy that played The Tennessee Flat Top Box
And he would play
[ ac.guitar ]
Well he couldn't ride a wrangle and he never cared to make a 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 that played The Tennessee Flat Top Box
And he would play
[ ac.guitar ]
Then one day he was gone and no one ever saw him round
He vanished like the breeze and they forgot him in the little town
But all the girls still dreamed about him
And hung around the cabaret until the doors ware locked
And then one day on the hitparade
Was a little dark haired boy that played The Tennessee Flat Top Box
And he would play
[ ac.guitar ]
