The Lyrics

Lester Flatt and Ol' Earl Scruggs,
Sure could pick and sing
On that Grand Ol' Opry they'd appear
Lester strummed a mean guitar,
And Earl's banjo would ring
Pleased them bluegrass fans from far and near

They'd both played with Bill Munroe,
Until they left and teamed up..
Back in nineteen forty-eight, tried their own hand
Had that "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" hit
Took home the Grammy prize for it
With a bluegrass sound that stayed in big demand

Later, on in "Beverly Hillbillies" they'd arrive
By pickin', singin' this shows famous theme
Honored in the Hall of Fame in nineteen eighty-five
Every country artist's favorite dream

In the coal mines of Kentucky, and the California sun
People loved the music they would play
Many albums they would sell, their style was matched by none
But eventually, each went his seperate way..

Then, Earl formed "The Earl Scruggs Revue", it featured his own sons
Took another Grammy prize, two thousand-two
Made International Blue Grass honoree in ninety-one
Starred on Hollywood's walk of fame, too

But Flatt and Scruggs, together..that's the way they will be known
Thru the Ozarks where old timers chaw on plugs
Ears up to the radio, old albums, scratchy tone..
In honkytonks where beer and moonshine chugs,
It's still Lester Flatt, and good ol' Earl Scruggs

It's still Lester Flatt, and good ol' Earl Scruggs

Nothing wrong with the idea, but...where's the chorus?

Sir, love this tribute to ~ F & S ~ I do remember their music used in the movie ~Bonnie & Clyde~ as they drove thru the golden wheat field of Oklahoma .

Thanks, alvin,...and to TR...The third stanza is the chorus, ( I do see an error where I should have added one more line here to replace, "Good enough for me and Bobby McGee".)..also the last stanza is the chorus, or the replaced chorus...In this type of parody, I often try to follow a story pattern, throughout, .and will not always retain the repetitive chorus pattern, as in the original...I realize there are going to be some who'll criticize certain technicalities, and that's their right...thanks, for your vote and comment...and thanks, HTC...yes, I wish I would have recalled that, I may have used it, too.
