                The Death Of Jimmy Martin
By Tom Russell

          D                                       Bm 
There's a hound dog running all alone through the piney woods
         G                             D 
Lord his howlin' tears the soul out of me
          D                             Bm  
There's a jay bird calling up a funeral dirge
   G             D
In ancient harmony
        Bm                     G
Barb'ry Allen rolled over in a grave all morning
     D             G          A
With roses growing out of her head
     D           G         D
Hey, God's gonna burn down Nashville, boys
G                    D
Cause Jimmy Martin's dead
        D           A             D 
Ah, the great Jimmy Martin's gone dead

        D             G                 D        
You got twenty twenty vision but you're walkin' 'round blind
    D         A    D 
You Grand Ole Opry fools
          D              G              D     
With your hypocritic judgments and your self righteous snobbery
     D          A             D        
Your God Damned false hearted rule
    Bm                         G
You scorned Hank Williams, you shunned Jimmy Martin,
         D         G          A
Boys who sang with tongues of fire.
   D           G              D  
So god's gonna burn down your Grand Ole Opry
         G                             D 
Hear the screams of the hypocrites and liars
          D              A           D  
They feel safer now that Jimmy has expired

A                    G
Run, Pete, run, your master's callin' you,
     D          G   A
He's waiting on up ahead
Bm               G    
Don't look back, Nashville's burnin' down
D     A        D     
Jimmy Martin's dead
        D           A             D  
Oh, The great Jimmy Martin's gone dead

Yeah, don't call me no country singer
Those are poison words to me
'Cause I ain't heard a good country song
Since 1973
The King of Bluegrass has died for your sins
The W***e of Babylon is sleepin' in your bed
So God's gonna burn down Nashville tonight, boys,
Cause Jimmy Martin's dead
The great Jimmy Martin's gone dead


There's a hound dog runnin' all alone through the piney woods
The howling tears the soul out of me
