SONG OF SONGS
by Boxcar Willie and Willie Nelson;
Written by Vern Stovall, Bill Palmer & Lloene Martin (Boxcar Willie)
How I love that old melody they're playing
I heard it in so many different songs
It made stars out of country music singers
And somehow it just keeps playin' on.
Oh! I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes
The Carters sang it first in ‘29
It was there with our soldiers during wartime
And today, it’s good to hear it, just as fine
Roy Acuff was a young country singer
His records were just starting to be heard
That old tune took him right up to stardom
On the wings Of The Great Speckled Bird.
Hank Thompson is a country music legend
He sang western swing and songs of peace and strife
That same tune gave old Hank the break he needed
On a record called The Wild Side Of Life.
A young girl then made the world stop and listen
Kitty Wells was that young singer's name
It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels
That melody rang clear as country rain.
Oh! those notes must come straight out of heaven
In so many different songs they were the same
I know someday they'll be etched in gold forever
And placed in the Country Music Hall Of Fame.
