Oh, they say that country music's gone to town
Hold your flocks and put on the cap and gown
What's the country boy to do what's this world a comin' to
Oh, they say that country music's gone to town.

Grandpa used to take his dear old fiddle on his knee
And Uncle Buck would git the banjo down
The only music ever heard that could stop a mockin' bird
Now they say that country music's gone to town.

Oh, they say that country music's gone to town
Hold your flocks and put on the cap and gown
What's the country boy to do what's this world a comin' to
Oh, they say that country music's gone to town.

--- Instrumental ---

One day I was walkin' through the canyons and the hills
I came upon a cabin far away
An old man with his banjo sat there a paddin' his big toe
And as he played it I could hear his say.

Oh, they say that country music's gone to town
Hold your flocks and put on the cap and gown
What's the country boy to do what's this world a comin' to
Oh, they say that country music's gone to town...
