Down On Music Row
George Strait & Alan Jackson
Album: Latest Greatest Straitest Hits (2000)

Intro: | D | A | E | A | A |

A                                        D
Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue.
                       A                                 E
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used.
        A                                                D
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul.
                    A       E            A
They got away with murder down on music row.

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

          D                               A
For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play,
     B7                                 E
But drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed up in your face.
     A                                       D
Old Hank wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
                      A      E             A
Since they committed murder down on music row.


Inst: | D | A | E | E | A |

A                                                        D
They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
                        A                                  E
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs
A                                                       D
   There ain't no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
                 A       E             A
Murder's been committed down on music row.

          D                                              A
Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can't hear fiddles play
       B                B7           E 
With drums and rock 'n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
A                                                   D
Why, the Hag, he wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
                       A     E             A 
Since they committed murder down on music row

A                                                      D
Why, they even tell the Possum to pack up and go back home
                       A      E             A
There's been an awful murder down on music row.
