Country Hall Of Fame

Song Author Karl Davis Performer: Hank Locklin Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I was roaming around in Nashville in the state of Tennessee
For I [G7]love that country music it's as [F]soulful as can [C]be  

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


I was roaming around in Nashville in the state of Tennessee
For I love that country music it's as soulful as can be

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

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

A happy kind of sadness brought a teardrop to my eye
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
I could hear that old Blue Yodel coming from somewhere afar

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

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

From the Autoharp of Maybelle Wildwood Flower seemed to ring
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
I could hear Tex Ritter singing his classic song High Noon

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

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

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