The Way It Was In '51 Written and recorded by Merle Haggard
C Sixty-Six was still a narrow two-lane highway G7 Harry Truman was the man who ran the show
The bad Korean was just beginning C And I was just three years too young to go
Country music hadn't gone to New York City yet C7 F And a service man was proud of what he'd done C Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox G7 C That's the way it was in fifty one
G7 C There's so much about the good old days I'd love to tell G7 And there's folks around I know still remember well C Slow dancing close together when a ballad played C7 F Cause a thing called rock and roll was yet to come C It was a big year for a drive-in restaurant carhop G7 C That's the way it was in fifty one
F C Yeah Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox G7 C Oh Lord that's the way it was in fifty one
