Murder On Music Row
recorded by George Strait and Alan Jackson
written by 
Larry Shell and Larry Cordle
 
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
