Steve Spurgin – They Don't Play George Jones On MTV lyrics
Daddy used to have it made.
He knew every song to play -
"Cryin' time", "I'll Walk the Line", and good old "Clifton Clower".
Always in demand,
People loved his little band
When they'd pick the daylights out of "Wildwood Flower".
Though he never was a star,
It never took Pop quite that far,
He still dreamed of Nashville, Tennessee.
Somewhere something passed him by.
No one told him why
They don't play George Jones on mtv.
He's still out there
Low and lonely after midnight
When it's down to two or three.
When there's country in your soul,
It won't come out rock & roll.
But, they don't play George Jones on mtv.
He's still got that old guitar
In the back seat of his car,
Waiting for some chance to play for free.
Pumping gas don't really pay,
But, there ain't much else to do these days.
'Cause they don't play George Jones on mtv.
He's still out there
Low and lonely after midnight
When it's down to two or three.
When there's country in your soul,
It won't come out rock & roll.
But, they don't play George Jones on mtv
