Going home in a trailer filled with Canada Dry, Looking forward to being with you. Got in to the broadway and what do I find ? Some lady's been sleeping there, too. I was dreamin' of our meetin' all down the M1 'Cause I hadn't seen you for so long. Then out of the blue, something came down and warned me And I sat there and wrote down this song. That was the day that the coke came to Nashville, That was the day I laughed till I cried. That was the day all my dreams turned to ashes And I lost my blues and I smiled. Well, I walked in the door and I heard you two laughing, Just like I'd hoped that we'd do. So I went up the stairs, left your keys on the table, And I wrote on the mirror, 'We're through!'. That was the day that the coke came to Nashville, That was the day that I had, honey. That was the day that the coke came to Nashville, And I've got the blues out just bad. Going home on a train, going back to my mother, Feeling better already, keep telling myself: 'Don't you cry, you'll forget him and find a new lover, So let's sit back and drink to his health.' That was the day that the coke came to Nashville, That was the day I laughed till I cried. That was the day that I felt my heart breaking, Ain't it funny, after all I've survived. Ain't it funny, after all I've survived.
