Come and listen to my story, if you do I'm gonna tell

About a group of fellers from down in Nashville.

We'll start with Red Foley doin' the "Chattanooga Choo",

Let's not forget hank Williams and them good ol' "Lovesick Blues".

Well, it's time for Roy Acuff goin' to Memphis on his train,

Minnie Pearl and Rod Braxville and Bradley Kincaid,

"Signed, Sealed and Delivered" with Sam and Kirk McGhee,

And the master of ceremonies is Mr. George D. Hay.

There'll be guitars and fiddles and banjo-pickin' too,

Bill Monroe singin' out those old "Kentucky Blues",

Earnest Tubb's number, "Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right",

At the Grand Ol' Opry every Saturday night.
