Parody Song Title:
"This Country Ain't Garth"
An Oklahoman came to Nashville;
'89 was the year.
He wiped out the artists
Who had worked hard for their fame.
Half a dozen albums ensued,
Earning diamond honours.
Soon, old Willie Nelson
Wanted out of Nashville's games.
Country music was corrupted;
Real artists were disrupted.
Whole careers were interrupted
Causing Texans to all sing:
Far away from the old Music City,
We'll make an anthem out of our ditty.
All hail George Strait, Willie Nelson and more;
This country ain't Garth 'cos his music's a bore!
Is there nothing to save Nashville
From Garth's carnage there?
Some are wond'ring if repairing
Will take years and years.
In the meantime, more corruption
Seeps through cracks he left.
The Dixie Chicks and Tim McGraw
Leave country all bereft
Of what's sane and what is rightful
Due to Garth's reign that was frightful.
Down in Texas, Larry Cordle
Wrote a hymn against the trends.
He wrote of murder on Music Row,
Of how the scene had been made to lay low.;
But Texans can take pride in all their songs;
Their country ain't Garth; now avenged be his wrongs!
In a honkytonk starts a revolt
'Gainst Music Row and the power that it holds.
Let's join with the rebels and share their cause;
Our country ain't Garth 'cos it sure makes you pause.
O! the weapons we use aren't for war,
But steel guitars, violins heard some more
And twangs that come from the hollers and such;
Our country ain't Garth 'cos we've had far too much,
Our country ain't Garth 'cos we've had far too much!
