Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Four
Released: February 4, 2013
By: Ike & Tina Turner
Sung by: Santana Lopez with the Cardinals
Place: The Choir Room
Episode: Diva

Nutbush City Limits by Ike & Tina Turner is featured in Diva, the thirteenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Santana with four of the Cardinals as back-up.

Before the performance, the Glee Club waits in anticipation as Ms. Pillsbury and Finn welcome a special diva joining them all the way from Louisville. Santana enters the room with cheerleaders from the Cardinals. The song begins as Santana and the cheerleaders sing and dance. Brittany and Sam seem a bit unhappy yet surprised while Tina looks annoyed. Brittany watches on the Glee Club as they dance to the song, while she watches with a confused expression. The cheerleaders and Santana pull off impressive and sexy moves, making Ryder look 'interested'.

Although obvious from Brittany's expressions that she wasn't too happy, at the end of the performance, she gets up to high five Santana and tells her that it was the 'greatest performance in showbiz history'. 

Lyrics

Santana (with The Cardinals):
A church house, gin house
A school house, outhouse
On highway number 19
The people keep the city clean

They call it Nutbush
Oh, Nutbush
Call it (Nutbush city limits)

The Cardinals:
Nutbush City

Santana (with The Cardinals):
Twenty-five is the speed limit
Motorcycle not allowed in it
You go to store on Fridays
You go to church on Sundays

They call it Nutbush, little old town
Woah, Nutbush
They call it (Nutbush city limits)

The Cardinals:
Nutbush City

Santana (with The Cardinals):
You go the fields on weekdays
And have a picnic on Labor day
You go to town on Saturdays
But go to church every Sunday

(The Cardinals: Oooh) They call it Nutbush
(The Cardinals: Oooh) Oah, Nutbush
They call it (Nutbush city limits)

The Cardinals:
Nutbush city (Santana: Hey)

Santana (The Cardinals):
Alright, hey-hey, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah
Ha, ha, ha, ha, hey (Aah)
Oh, yeah (Nutbush city limits)
Nutbush, woah

No whiskey for sale (Ooh-ooh)
You can't cop no bail (Ooh-ooh)
Salt pork and molasses (Ooh-ooh)
Is all you get in jail (Ooh-ooh)

(Oooh) They call it Nutbush
(Oooh) Oah, Nutbush
They call it

Santana with The Cardinals:
Nutbush city, Nutbush city limits

Santana (The Cardinals):
Little old town in Tennessee (Ooh-ooh)
It's called (Nutbush city limits)
(Aah) A quiet, little old community
A one-horse town you have to watch
What you're puttin' down

Santana with The Cardinals:
Nutbush city, Nutbush city limits

Santana (with The Cardinals):
Oh (Nutbush)
They call it (Nutbush)
They call it (Nutbush city limits)
