Recorded by Hank Snow

Well let me hear the sound of the Tennessee flat top
Ringin' off of the wall
Behind the ice water tones of a steel guitar
And a country fiddle walkin' tall
Let the drums and bass set a honky tonk pace
In every country song you sing
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand ole open hole ring

Let it ring out fine in a song about why
A cheatin' heart had caused some pain
About a black land farm, a pair of pretty arms
Or the whistle of a midnight train
Well country songs don't turn me on
Or send the blood a-rushin' through my veins
Unless I hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring

Well the bluegrass sound took a ride uptown
On the back of open hole rhythm
And all the big country stars wouldn't be where they are
Without the help that old flat top give 'em
Now I may be behind time but I know my own mind
Make my country music plain
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring

Well the bluegrass sound took a ride uptown
On the back of open hole rhythm
And all the big country stars wouldn't be where they are
Without the help that old flat top give 'em
Now I may be behind time but I know my own mind
Make my country music plain
And let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring
Let me hear that six string Tennessee flat top
Grand old open hole ring
