Song Of Songs
Recorded by Boxcar Willie and Willie Nelson
Written by Vern Stovall, Bill Palmer & Lloene Martin 
G                                  C
How I love that old melody they're playing
  D7                            G
I heard it in so many different songs
It made stars out of country music singers
    D7                            G
And somehow it just keeps playing on
Oh I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes
      D7                                G
Seems to me it's been around since time began
It was there with our soldiers during wartime
    D7                                   G   
And right today we still hear it now and then
Roy Acuff was young country singer
    D7                               G
His records were just starting to be heard
That old tune took him right up to stardom
       D7                          G
On The Wings Of The Great Speckled Bird
Hank Thompson is a country music legend
   D7                                        G 
He sang western swing and songs of peace and strife
That same tune gave old Hank the break he needed
     D7                             G   
On a record called The Wild Side Of Life
A young girl made the world stop and listen
      D7                            G 
Kitty Wells was that young singer's name
It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels
     D7                           G
That melody rang clear as country rain
Oh those notes must come straight out of heaven
   D7                                    G 
In so many different songs they were the same
I know someday they'll be etched in gold forever
    D7                                  G
And placed in the Country Music Hall Of Fame
    D7                                  G
And placed in the Country Music Hall Of Fame
