Hats Off Lyrics

by Alabama

The stage is set tonight down in Nashville
It's been a long hard ride into town
And thanks to some cowboys and heroes
My chance to sing has finally come around

The first song I ever sang was haggard
Momma sang to me, I saw the light
I'd turn my radio up louder
To hear Johnny Cash walk the line

Oh Waylon sang a song about Texas
Willie's 'Blue Eyes Cried In The Rain'
Bocephus sings a song about Dixie
And Lefty taught us all how to sing

Hats off to hard riding cowboys
Riding somewhere tonight
Hats off to hard riding cowboys
Wanted, dead or alive

Well Charlie ran the devil out of Georgia
Skynyrd sang sweet home Alabam
The Allman Brothers taught us how to ramble
And the Tucker Boys showed us how to jam

Hats off to hard riding cowboys
Riding somewhere tonight
Hats off to hard riding cowboys
Wanted, dead or alive

Well the stage is set tonight up in Heaven
And Reba's band is there with Patsy Cline
And all around there's cowboys and cowgirls
And thanks to them the music's still alive

Hats off to hard riding cowboys
Flying somewhere tonight
Hats off to hard flying cowboys
Wanted, dead or alive
