Growing up
I loved both Rock and Roll
And Country music
Then it was clear
To hear how the two could be
Easily distinguished

But just the other day
I heard a Heavy Metal
Guitar solo played
In one of the New
Country songs

And as much as I wanna stay
Positive
I just have to say
I think that's just plain wrong

Chorus:
Tell me why, oh, why
Did Classic Country music
Have to die?
Where do they get off
Mixin' Country stories and singers
With Hard Rock and Pop?

Am I alone
In that at times
It makes me want to cry?
Oh, tell me why, oh, why
Did Classic Country music
Have to die?

Now, I do have my
Favorite Rock and Roll
Styled drummers
But when I hear one
Playing in a Country band
I think they should try another

I think all Country musicians
Should learn the formula
That the Classic Country heroes used

It's really not that difficult
The way that
They mixed Bluegrass up
With good old Gospel and Blues

Chorus
