Lyrics

George Strait & Alan Jackson

(George)
Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music, cut out it's heart and soul
They got away with murder down on music row.

(Alan)
The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang
(George - You got that right buddy).
Well, they all say not guilty, but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on music row.

(Both)
For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed up in your face
Old Hank wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on music row.

Ah, tell it boys
--- Instrumental ---

(George)
They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating
songs
(Alan)
Well, there ain't no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
Murder's been committed down on music row.

(Both)
Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can't hear fiddles play
With drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed right up in your face
Why, the Hag, he wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on music row.

(Alan)
Why, they even tell the Possum to pack-up and go back home
(Both)
There's been an awful murder down on music row...
