Grand Ole Opry Song

print

Come and listen to my story if you will I’m gonna tell
About a gang of fellars down at Nashville
First I’ll start with old Red Foley doing his Chatanooga Shoe
We can’t forget Hank Williams with his Good Lord Lovesick Blues

It’s time for Roy Acuff go to Memphis on his train
Minnie Pearl and Rob Brassfield with Lazy Jim Day
Turn on your radio I know that you will wait
Hear Little Jimmy Dickens sing ‘Take An Old Cold Water and Wait’

There’ll be guitars and fiddles and banjo pickin’ too
Bill Monroe singing out them Old Kentucky Blues
Ernest Tubb’s number Two Wrongs Won’t Make a Right
At the Grand Ole Opry every Saturday night

There is Uncle Dave Macon his gold tooth and plug hat
Cowboy Copas singing Tragic Romance
Signed Sealed and Delivered with Sam and Curt McGee
And the master of ceremony is the Mr.George D. Hay

There is Lonzo and Oscar a-poppin’ bubble gum
George Morgan singing Candy Kisses yum yum
Got a hole in my bucket bringing in that Georgia mail
We’ll play the Bluegrass Breakdown and dance to the Chicken Reel

You can talk about your singers in all kinds of way
But none could sing the old songs like Bradley Kincaid
With his old hound dog Buitar and the famous ‘Blue tail fly’
Stringbean and Hank Snow and fiddlin’ Chubby Wise
