Ballad Of The Grand Ole Opry Recorded by George Morgan Written by George Morgan and Tommy Hill [3/4 time]
C F As the lights were turned off and the curtain was closed C D7 G7 And all of the songs had been sung C F At the Grand Ole Opry I sat there and wondered C G7 C How this great country show had begun
F Did the Great One above us gather some tears C D7 G7 With some heartache He took from life’s page C F And mix it together with laughter and joy C G7 C And sprinkle it over the stage
F Did He speak to the heart of all the great stars C D7 G7 Did He help them put soul in their songs C F And maybe He guided their foot steps in life C G7 C And showed them just where they belong
F Could it be He was thinking one Saturday night C D7 G7 Of something that we all could share C F So He started the Opry for you and for me C G7 C And He put this great show on the air
F Did He know there’d be happiness there on the stage C D7 G7 Did He know men would cry in the wings C F Is He pleased with the smiles on the faces of thousands C G7 C As each star steps out there and sings
F And each Saturday night over forty some years C D7 G7 Folks have lined up for blocks just to see C F How the Great One has played the best show in the land C G7 C On the stage of the Grand Ole Opry
