Even though I love todays modern country, this song has a cool story line to it 
about the death of traditional country music.  this is a different way to play it. 


Song Title: Murder On Music Row 
Artist: George Strait (Alan Jackson also recorded this)

 
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

Thanks for the excellent formatting. I'll listen to the song and see if the chords are right but I suspect they are.

They play this song in Key of A, but I put a capo on the 2nd fret and I play what you had and it sounded good
