Murder On Music Row
Nobody saw him running, from 16th avenue
They never found a fingerprint nor the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder, down on music row

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang
Oh and they all say not guilty but the evidence will show
That murder was committed, down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry and you can’t hear fiddles play
With drums and rock & roll guitars mixed all up in your face
Old Hank, wouldn’t have a chance, on today’s radio
Since they committed murder, down on music row

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old, drinkin’ and cheatin’ songs
Well there ain’t no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
There’s been an awful murder, down on music row.
