[Intro]

{D} {A} {E} {A} {A}

[GS Verse]
{A} Nobody saw them running
From 16th Ave-{D}-nue
They never found the {A} fingerprints
Or the weapon that was {E} used
But some-{A}-one killed country music
Cut out its heart and {D} soul
They got away with {A} murder
{E} Down on music {A} row

[AJ Verse]
{A} The almight dollar
And the lust for worldwide {D} fame
Slowly killed tra-{A}-dition
And for that, someone should {E} hang   ("Ahh, you tell 'em Alan")
{A} They all say "Not Guilty!"
But the evidence will {D} show
That murder was com-{A}-mitted
{E} Down on music {A} row

[Chorus (Walking bassline first 8 bars, 2/4 beat last 9 bars)]
For the {D} steel guitars no longer cry
And the {A} fiddles barely play
But {B} drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
Are {E} mixed up in your face
{A} Ol'  Hank wouldn't have a chance
On today's {D} radio
Since they committed {A} murder
{E} Down on music {A} row

[Turnaround]

{D} {A} {E} {A} {A}

[Split Verse]
GS: They {A} thought no one would miss it
    Once it was dead and {D} gone
    They said no one would {A} buy them ol'
    Drinkin' and cheatin' {E} songs   ("Oh, but I still buy 'em")
AJ: Well there {A} ain't no justice in it
    And the hard facts are {D} cold
    Murder's been com-{A}-mitted
    {E} Down on music {A} row

[Chorus (Walking bassline first 8 bars, 2/4 beat last 9 bars)]
For the {D} steel guitars no longer cry
And you {A} can't hear fiddles play
With {B} drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
Mixed {E} right up in your face
Why the {A} Hag wouldn't have a chance
On today's {D} radio
Since they committed {A} murder
{E} Down on music {A} row

[Tag (Walking bassline)]
Why they {A} even tell the Possum
To pack up and go back {D} home
There's been an awful {A} murder
{E} Down on music {A} row
