Just a skinny little Mississippi railroad man
He brought his music from the cotton fields
Thank God for Jimmie Rodgers
I just wish he could've lived to see the day
Now a million songs have come and gone
About neon nights, everyday life
And more and more folks
Now I can proudly say that I saw the day

They can't get enough of this country stuff
We painted the town with that grand old sound
Yes, I was there the day

But I bet my best guitar
And a honky-tonk on Mars
The best music ever known
When country took the throne
Now from Carolina to California, Texas to New York
And they're screaming for more
And the whole world sang along
When country took the throne
I said I was there the day
