Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Nutbush City Limits"
The Lyrics:
A little old town in Tennessee A quiet little community You have to watch what you're putting down In old Nutbush Oh, Nutbush
Why:
Ike & Tina Turner's Top Twenty pop hit, "Nutbush City Limits" came near the end of the time when they were a couple making music (just before the time documented by Tina Turner in her biography when she started to get away from and later divorce the abusive Ike) in 1973. "Nutbush City Limits" was actually written by Tina Turner and sang totally by Tina on the record (Ike produced the tune though and played guitar on the hit). "Nutbush City Limits" is a song about Tina Turner growing up in the unincorporated rural community of Nutbush, Tennessee (the state of Tennessee also got a shoutout in the fifth and final verse I have transcribed above) which is in western Tennessee in Lauderdale County near Memphis.
