Country Went To Hell Lyrics – Jacob Bryant

My grandma bought me a guitar
On the day that I turned 9
Well I’d stand in front of a mirror
And act like I could play I Walk the Line
I was in my daddy’s car
The first time I heard Wailin’ Jennys sing
Saying it don’t matter who’s in Texas holmes
Bob Wills’ still the king

But yeah we’ve come a long way
Since
[?] and that good-timin’ man
Yeah Johnny and June went to Jackson
Oh but Nashville didn’t want that outlaw band
Lord I remember the day
The good Lord called Johnny Paycheck home
That’s when country went to hell
And now the man in black is gone

Yeah I had every Haggard record
From Branded Man to Yesterday’s Wine
And I knew just what he was talking bout
When he told us how much his mama tried
And The Possum asked us all
Lordy who’s gonna fill them shoes
Well Mr. Jones I’m afraid I’m sorry
I think I got a little bad blues

But yeah we’ve come a long way
Since
[?] and that good-timin’ man
Yeah Johnny and June went to Jackson
Oh but Nashville didn’t want that outlaw band
I remember the day
The good Lord called Waylon Jennings home
And that’s when country went to hell
And now the man in black is gone

Aw here we go!

Yeah I remember the day
The good Lord called Keith Whitley home
That’s when country went to hell
And now the man in black is gone
