George Strait – Murder On Music Row chords

Chords
Transpose:
Even though I love todays modern country, this song has a cool story line to it 
about the death of traditional country music.  this is a different way to play it. 


Song Title: Murder On Music Row 
Artist: George Strait (Alan Jackson also recorded this)

 
G Nobody saw them running
C From 16th Avenue
G They never found the fingerprints
D7 Or the weapon that was used
G But someone killed country music
C Cut out its heart and soul
G They got away with murder
D7 G Down on music row
The almighty dollar
C And the lust for worldwide fame
G Slowly killed tradition
D7 And for that someone should hang
G They all say got guilty
C But the evidence will show
G That murder was committed
D7 G G7 Down on music row
C For the steel guitars no longer cry
G And the fiddles barely play
A7 But drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
D7 Are mixed up in your face
G Ol' Hank wouldn't have a chance
C On today's radio
G Since they committed murder
D7 G Down on music row
They thought no one would miss it
C Once it was dead and gone
G They said no one would buy them ol'
D7 Drinking and cheating songs
G Well there ain't no justice in it
C And the hard facts are cold
G Murder's been committed
D7 G G7 Down on music row
C For the steel guitars no longer cry
G And you can't hear fiddles play
A7 With drums and rock 'n' roll guitars
D7 Mixed right up in your face
G Why the Hag wouldn't have a chance
C On today's radio
G Since they committed murder
D7 G Down on music row
Why they even tell the Possum
C To pack up and go back home
G There's been an awful murder
D7 G Down on music row
