[Verse 1]
 G                                    C              G
He came down from old Rosine, with a song and a mandolin
   G
Tilling ground and planting seeds
          C            G
Where no one had ever been
     C                    G
He brought it down to Nashville, 
     D                 G
And they all knew his name
     C                   G           Em
He played the Grand Old Opry, and it never was the same.


[Chorus]
 G                                     C                 G
Bear down on that fiddle son when you play that Old Muleskinner
 G                                   C               G
All you got and then some, and I'll jump in on the tenor
 C             G               D             G
Pick it Earl, here it comes, Lester and his old G-run
 C               G                Em
You can't do it that way son, according to Monroe's doctrine
  G                
Ain't no part of nothing.


[Verse 2]
 G                                    C                G
All the years he traveled, down them rough and rocky roads
 G                                   C        G
Singing high and lonesome, with his body and soul
       C             G
Well Monroe was a wheel hoss, 
 D                G
It's a bluegrass way,
  C             G                Em
Every time he kicked it off, I thought I'd hear him say...


[Chorus]
 G                                     C                 G
Bear down on that fiddle son when you play that Old Muleskinner
 G                                   C               G
All you got and then some, and I'll jump in on the tenor
 C             G               D             G
Pick it Earl, here it comes, Lester and his old G-run
 C               G               Em          
You can't do it that way son, according to Monroe's doctrine
 G
Ain't no part of nothing.


[Coda]
 C             G               D             G
Pick it Earl, here it comes, Lester and his old G-run
 C               G               Em             
You can't do it that way son, according to Monroes' doctrine
G
Ain't no part of nothing.
