I can still remember my first guitar
Bright and shiny like a brand new car
Even took it with me when I went to school
And I practiced every day till I got real good

I learned every lick on the radio
From Wabash Cannon to go Johnny go
I majored in rhythm with a minor in blues
Then I hit the road with my blue suede shoes

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand Ole Opry on on a Saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
Hillbilly Hollywood

I played some bars where you never wanna go
From Oklahoma City down to Tupelo
My ears would be ringing like an old fire bell
When I'd lay me down in some cheap hotel

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand Ole Opry on a Saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
Hillbilly Hollywood

And I pray before too long
They will hear my song

And I dreamed of seeing my name in lights
Grand Ole Opry on a Saturday night
Standing where my heroes stood
I dreamed, grand old Opry on a Saturday night standing

Hillbilly Hollywood
Hillbilly Hollywood
Hillbilly Hollywood
