Bill Anderson And Roy Acuff I Wonder if God Likes Country Music Lyrics

 

(Bill)

We were tunin' up to play a gig

Just another one night stand

I looked over my guitar

And there stood an old man.

His cowboy clothes were frayed and worn

And his boots were far from new

He said I'd like to sit in with your band

I'm a country singer too.

Well, we just had a big laugh

And when I looked back at the old man

There was a tear in his eye

I told the band to cool it

I didn't wanna see him cry.

He reached down and he took my guitar

With a determined look on his face

But as he started to play and sing

A look of sadness took it's place.

He said I've sang my songs from Maine to California

Seen the world through the window of a car

I never saved a dime back when I made it

I always thought someday I'd be a star.

But now my voice is cracked and no one wants me

My wife gave up on me years ago

It's been so long my kids don't even know me

Pickin' and singin' is the only life I know.

And then he said,

(Roy)

I wonder if God likes country music

Will there be a place up there to sing my songs

Will he make my fingers nimble like they used to be

So I can play the chords and sing along.

(Bill)

I just stood there, none of us really knew what to say

He took my guitar and he put it down ever so gently

And then as he started to turn and leave

The band stood up and applauded

And I can still hear his words today, he said

(Roy)

I wonder if God likes country music

Will there be a place up there to sing my songs

Will he make my fingers nimble like they used to be

So I can play the chords and sing along...
