Default Timbuktu


I'll buy me a camel
Buy me a turban
Forget Little Big Town
Forget Keith Urban
I'll sell my guitar
Give up the dream
This business
Ain't what it seems

I'm right next door
But might as well be in Timbuktu
You don't love me
Even though I love you
I live in Nashville
But could be living in Timbuktu
Rejected by the Row
They hate what I do

That ancient city
Is near the Sahara
In the country of Mali
West Africa
I guess it's Muslim
So I wont fit in
Guess I'll just
Get over it

Can't find a girl friend
Can't find a publisher
Might as well be in
The Sahara Desert

I'm right next door
But might as well be in Timbuktu
You don't love me
Even though I love you
I live in Nashville
But could be living in Timbuktu
Rejected by the Row
They hate what I do
