    Tar Top

    It was July hot 'cross Georgia on my way to Myrtle Beach
    I just got my diploma so I set out in search of me
    The honeymoon was over, and Alabama was far away
    From being little more than just a southern state.

    I got a gig down at the Bowery
    I played for tip and watered drinks
    Just a novice in a business
    That's seldom what it seems.

    And where are you goin' Tar Top
    Where's J. C. And The Chosen Few
    I saw the Flash without T. Gentry
    And B. V. left for Malibu.

    I was July hot and thirty, some years down the line
    When the Boys touched the nation, unaware at the time
    I got to go to Texas, California, New York too
    A farm boy who is thankful to be standin' in his shoes.

    But in the Bowery hangs the mem'ries
    Of dreams that still come true
    Every time I see the spotlight
    I'm one of the chosen few.

    And where are you going Tar Top
    Where's J. C. and the Chosen Few
    There's no Flash without T. Gentry
    And B. V. where are you?

    Where are you goin' Tar Top
    Which direction will you take
    What's this contrabanded clamor
    About the music that you make?

    And where are you goin' Tar Top
    Is it country enough
    Is it contemporary glamour
    No it's us, just us.

    Uh huh...
