THERE'S A GRAND OLE OPRY SHOW PLAYING SOMEWHERE
Recorded by Red Johnson
Words and music by Bud Auge and Red Johnson
Note. Sung to the tune of: "I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes."
[D] There's a Grand Ole Opry Show playing some-[G] where
In a [A7] distant land so many miles a-[D] way
Only country music's greatest get to go [G] there
Where I [A7] wish that I could also go some-[D] day.
[D] I'd see Williams, Horton, Patsy Cline and [G] Copas
Hawkshaw [A7] Hawkins and Jack Anglin, [D] too
There's a Grand Ole Opry Show playing some-[G] where
In a [A7] distant land so far beyond the [D] blue.
As the Velvet curtains open in the twilight
Choirs of angels sings the sweetest harmony
As the show goes on in Hillbilly Heaven
What a beautiful sight it must be.
Jimmie Rodgers is the M.C. of the evening
One by one he calls each artist from the wings
To perform and do the songs they've made so famous
As the melodies are played on golden strings.
There's a Grand Ole Opry Show playing somewhere
On a starlit stage so many miles away
Only country music's greatest get to go there
Where I wish that I could also go someday.
