Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Nobody saw him running from Sixteenth Avenue
Left allemande, dosado, left allemande and weave
But someone killed country music
Swing your own, promenade
They got away with murder
Down on music row


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway, square thru to 4
Go all the way, a right & left thru, veer left
Couples circulate you do
Bend the line, pass the ocean
Recycle, swing your corner, promenade
That murder was committed down on music row


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed up in your face

Allemande and weave
Old Hank wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on music row

Murder On Music Row
 
 

Nobody saw him running from Sixteenth Avenue
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used
But someone killed Country music, cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder down on Music Row

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang (oh, you tell them Alan)
They all say "not guilty", but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on Music Row

For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock 'n roll guitars are mixed up in your face
Old Hank wouldn't stand a chance on today's radio
Since they committed murder down on Music Row

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They thought no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs (I'll still buy 'em)
Well there ain't no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
That murder was committed down on Music Row

For, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can't hear fiddles play
With drums and rock 'n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
Why, the Hag, he wouldn't have a chance on today's radio
Since they've committed murder down on Music Row

Why, they even tell the Possum to pack up and go back home
There's been an awful murder down on Music Row

Lyrics by Larry Cordle‎ and Larry Shell.
Recorded by George Strait and Alan Jackson.
