Well I was born in Tennessee and it coudln't hold me
I told my mama and my daddy that I got to be free
I moved to California where the sun shines all day long
If it feels so good, girl you know it ain't wrong
I started playin' in the clubs, playin' keys
I started chasin' every woman that laid a smile on me
Played with Guns n' Roses by the time that I was 23
Yes, there ain't no rock n' roller alive that was rock n' rollin' enough for me

Yeah, 'cause I wanna get down
Down like a basset hound
Down to the honky tonk town
Burn this juke joint down
Make Hank proud
Get drunk
Get loud
I'm bound ta git down
Bound ta git down

Well I made a few records, I wrote a few songs
I took 'em down to Nashville and set it all off
Didn't hear from the bus
Still stuck in traffic back in Tennessee
See if I end up drinkin' I'll be out of bullets, scream for me
Now I got me a house in the Hollywood Hills
I smoked me some weed but I don't take no pills
I got me a man, we love jammin'
On my gray guitar, on my gray hammock
I once saw a band with Marilyn Manson
Called Johnny B. Bad
You know that I'm back in town!

Down like a basset hound
Down to the honky tonk town
Burn this juke joint down
Make Hank proud
Get drunk
Get loud
I'm bound ta git down
Bound ta git down

You know that I am
Whoo! Hear me, boy! 

Oh I wanna get down
Down like a basset hound
Down to the honky tonk town
Burn this juke joint down
Make Hank proud
Get drunk
Get loud
I'm bound ta git down
Bound ta git down

Yea-heh-heh
Yeah-heh-he
Yea-heh-heh
Yeah-heh-he
