Grand Ole Opry Song Lyrics

Come and listen to my story if you will I'm gonna tell
About a gang of fellers from down at Nashville
First I'll start with old Red Foley doin' the 'Chattanooga shoe'
We can't forget Hank Williams with them good old 'Lovesick blues'

It's time for Roy Acuff to go to Memphis on his train
With Minnie Pearl and Rod Brasfield and lazy Jim Day
Turn on all your radios I know that you will wait
Hear Little Jimmy Dickens sing 'Take an old cold tater and wait'

There'll be guitars and fiddles, Earl Scruggs and his banjo too
Bill Monroe singing out them ole 'Kentucky blues'
Ernest Tubb's number, 'Two wrongs won't make a right'
At the Grand Ole Opry every Saturday night

There was Uncle Dave Macon his gold tooth and plug hat
Cowboy Copas singing 'Tragic romance'
Signed sealed and delivered with Sam and Kirk McGee
And the master of ceremony was Mr. George D Hays

There was Lonzo and Oscar a-poppin' bubble gum
George Morgan singin' 'Candy kisses' yum, yum
'Got a hole in my bucket' 'Bringin' in that Georgia mill'
We'll sing 'The sunny side of the mountain'
And dance to the 'Chicken reel'

There'll be guitars and fiddles and banjo pickin' too
Bill Monroe singin' out them ole 'Kentucky blues'
Ernest Tubb's number, 'Two wrongs won't make a right'
At the Grand Ole Opry every Saturday night

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 'Guitar' and the famous 'Blue tail fly'
Stringbean with Hank Snow and old fiddlin' Chubby Wise

There'll be guitars and fiddles, Earl Scruggs and his banjo too
Bill Monroe singin' out them ole 'Kentucky blues'
Ernest Tubb's number 'Two wrongs don't make a right'
At the Grand Ole Opry every Saturday night
