Hank Would Roll Over ©

I don't hear country music anymore in Nashville
No twin fiddles playing no steel guitar fills
Them cheating songs we knew have all gone with wind
And drinking songs ain't thought of like they were way back then

Hillbilly singers of yesterday would never make it now
Singing of lies and loves and made it all real somehow
A woman and a man would make it through the night
Dancing to a cowboy waltz as they held each other tight

We lost our country roots somewhere along the way
lefty george and haggard would not be heard today
Nudie boots and rhinestone suits would have never seen the stage
distorted guitars and pickups are now ALL THE RAGE

CHRS:

Take me back to a time when country music was a country song
Don't try to sell me rock and roll we know it don't belong
The CMA's are fiction I don't even know their names
Old Hank would roll over if he could hear your game

Well we don't have to agree on the music we love for me to love your song. The lyrics were clear and well written. You sang it very nicely. Nice!

Another good one. I always enjoy your songs.
Love the lyrics. It's so true.
The pop country they play on the radio these days is a joke.

Good stuff! Affirms exactly how I feel, and I got no beefs with the composition.

I LOVE THE TITLE...And yes Hank would roll over...

Lyrics fit the tune perfectly. This would be fun with a male and a female singing it. Kinda switching verses
