Murder on Music Roll
 
 G                        
Nobody saw them running
             C    
From 16th Avenue
                     G             
They never found the fingerprints
                       D7     
Or the weapon that was used
 
        G                         
But someone killed country music
                      C     
Cut out its heart and soul
                   G       
They got away with murder
 D7            G    
Down on music row
 
                   
The almighty dollar
                           C     
And the lust for worldwide fame
                 G       
Slowly killed tradition
                            D7       
And for that someone should hang  
 
 G                        
They all say got guilty
                      C     
But the evidence will show
                   G       
That murder was committed
 D7            G   G7   
Down on music row
 
 C                            
For the steel guitars no longer cry
        G                    
And the fiddles barely play
    A7                                
But drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
    D7                      
Are mixed up in your face
 
 G                                 
Ol' Hank wouldn't have a chance
              C      
On today's radio
                     G       
Since they committed murder
 D7            G    
Down on music row
 
                                  
They thought no one would miss it
                     C     
Once it was dead and gone
                       G             
They said no one would buy them ol'
                      D7       
Drinking and cheating songs 
 
           G                       
Well there ain't no justice in it
                       C     
And the hard facts are cold
                 G       
Murder's been committed
 D7            G   G7  
Down on music row
 
 C                            
For the steel guitars no longer cry
        G                        
And you can't hear fiddles play
     A7                                
With drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
      D7                      
Mixed right up in your face
 
        G                           
Why the Hag wouldn't have a chance
              C      
On today's radio
                     G       
Since they committed murder
 D7            G    
Down on music row
 
                              
Why they even tell the Possum
                       C     
To pack up and go back home
                      G       
There's been an awful murder
 D7            G    
Down on music row
