dog lyrics – bare jr

there was a group of little guys grew up together
in the fifties when rock and roll was hot
and every time they turned on a radio station
chuck berry and little richard was all they got

and then one night, they heard the country gentleman
playing something new in a brand new way

chet would you play
still hear him today
chet you’re the reason
we’re country today

we only met but never got to know him
till our first tv special years ago
so then we called and asked him
if he’d come by and do a little picking on our show

and there we sat in front of all america
like we used to sit in front of our radios

chet would you play
still hear him today
chet you’re the reason
we’re country today

chet you’re the reason
we’re country today
