Southern Comfort

Johnny Cash

I've been a thrill seeking rambler and often came into this town
But the thrills were too high for my little sky so I dug in and I've settled down
And I got a good job in Nashville no way they can pay me enough
For grindin' up tobacco leaves making brut and snuff
Southern comfort is killin' me I'm slowly chokin' in Tennessee
I shovel the snuff until late afternoon
Then I crawl with the traffic and I choke on its fumes
And fall on the face when I get to my room southern comfort is killin' me

I met a woman in Nashville for a while we were carryin' on
She'd washed the snuff out of my shirts every night
And keep me with clean ones on
But I guess she got tired of tobacco at least of the regular kind
Now I'm still workin' where nicotine and memories're burning my mind
And southern comfort is killin' me the Cumberland cannot enhermit each bee
I'm sniffin' and dippin' and livin' alone
I smell funny smoke and I know where she's gone
She's in some other county now proving her own
Southern comfort is killin' me southern comfort is killin' me
