Well, let me hear the sound of the Tennessee flat top
Ringin' off of the wall
Behind the ice water tones of a steel guitar
And a country fiddle walkin' tall.

Let the drums and bass set a honky tonk pace
In every country song you sing
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand ole open hole ring.

Let it ring out fine in a song about why
A cheatin' heart had caused some pain
About a black land farm a pair of pretty arms
Or the whistle of a midnight train.

Well country songs don't turn me on
Or send the blood a rushin' through my veins
Unless I hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring.

Well, the bluegrass sound took a ride uptown
On the back of open hole rhythm
And all the big country stars wouldn't be where they are
Without the help that old flat top give 'em.

Now I may be behind time but I know my own mind
Make my country music plain
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring.

Well, the bluegrass sound took a ride uptown
On the back of open hole rhythm
And all the big country stars wouldn't be where they are
Without the help that old flat top give 'em.

Now I may be behind time but I know my own mind
Make my country music plain
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring.

Let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring...
