Country Hall Of Fame 
recorded by Hank Locklin
written by
Karl Davis
I was roaming around in Nashville in the state of Tennessee
G7 F C
For I love that country music it's as soulful as can be

I have gathered their records for I cherish every name
G7 C
So I found myself a-standing in the Country Hall Of Fame

My heart beats somewhat faster as I walk in thru the door
G7 F C
For I heard the sound of voices I had often heard before

A happy kind of sadness brought a teardrop to my eye
G7 C
Now I'll tell you what I saw there and I'm sure that you'll see why

Jimmie Rodger's railroad letters and his faithful old guitar
G7 F C
I could hear that old Blue Yodel coming from somewhere afar

Roy Acuff in Bronze likeness with the great Fred Rose his friend
G7 C
And I heard that Wabash Cannonball somewhere around the bend

The guitar of Eddy Arnold memories of Cattle Call
G7 F C
Chet Atkins will be with him When The Works All Done This Fall

From the Autoharp of Maybelle Wildwood Flower seemed to ring
G7 C
Riley Puckett and Gid Tanner how they all could pick and sing

I could hear George Hay announcing as I stood there in the room
G7 F C
I could hear Tex Ritter singing his classic song High Noon

Minnie Pearl so glad to be there and Hank Snow keeps Moving On
G7 C
May the Lord bless those still living and the ones who join His throne

Cowboy Copas Hawkshaw Hawkins Gentleman Jim and Patsy Cline
G7 F C
Rod Brasfield Ira Louvin these stars will always shine

Ernest Tubb the great Red Foley and Hank Williams bless his name
G7 F
Though some are gone they'll live forever in the Country Hall Of Fame
