George Strait - Murder On Music Row

Intro   D     |A     |E     |A      |      ||

Verse 1
    A                         A7            D
 Nobody saw them running from sixteenth Avenue
                       A                                  E
 They never found the fingerprints or the weapon that was used
         A                            A7                 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                       A7                 D
 The almight dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
                   A                                   E
 Slowly killed tradition and for that, someone should hang
   A                                A7              D
 They all say "Not Guilty!" but the evidence will show
                     A      E             A
 That murder was committed down on music row

Chorus
           D                                  A
 For the steel guitars no longer cry and the fiddles barely play
       B7                                 E                E7
 But drums and rock 'n' roll guitars are mixed up in your face
A                                       A7       D
 Ol'  Hank wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
                       A      E             A
 Since they committed murder down on music row

Interlude   D    |A    |E    |A    |     ||

Verse 2
        A                               A7               D
 They thought no one would miss it once it was dead and gone
                         A                                  E
 They said no one would buy them ol' drinkin' and cheatin' songs
            A                              A7              D
 Well there ain't no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
                   A      E             A
 Murder's been committed down on music row

Chorus
           D                                  A
 For the steel guitars no longer cry and you can't hear fiddles play
       B7                                    E                E7
 With drums and rock 'n' roll guitars mixed right up in your face
A                                              A7       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                            A7              D
 Why they'd even tell the Possum to pack up and go back home
                        A      E             A       A E A
 There's been an awful murder down on music row
