Gosdin, Vern - That Ole Silver Tone Lyrics




He used to play the Opry when he was on a roll
The rhinestones he was flashing have all but lost their glow
That old guitar he was wearing was the only friend he'd known
He could sure sing a sad country song with that old Silvertone

An astray for tips a barstool for a stage
He'd stay there till closing time and play the pain away
That old guitar in the corner was the only friend he'd known
He could sure sing a sad country song with that old Silvertone

I stopped in that little bar to try and catch his show
But he'd moved on to a bigger stage little did I know
I'd say there's just not one dry eye in Canaan land tonight
Cause the way he'd play that Silvertone would make an angel cry

A beer mug for tips a barstool for a stage
He'd play there till closing time and sing the blues away
For a tip and a shot of whiskey he's put you on the show
He could sure sing a sad country song with that old Silvertone

Yeah he could sure sing a sad country song with that old Silvertone
