Murder On Music Row2-crd  George Strait

[C] [G] [D] [G] [C] [G] 
[G] Nobody [C] saw him [G] running, from[G7] Sixteenth Ave[C]nue
They never found [G] a fingerprint, or the weapon that was [D]
used.[D7]
[G] But someone killed [C] country [G] music, [G7] cut out its
heart and [C] soul.
They got away with [G] murder, [D] down on [D7] music [G] row.
[C] [G] [D] 
                                  [G] The al[C]mighty [G] dollar, and the [G7]lust for worldwide
[C] fame
Slowly killed [G] tradition, and for that someone should [D]
hang.[D7]
[G] They all [C] say "Not [G] Guilty" but the[G7] evidence will
[C] show
That murder was [G] committed,[D] down on [D7] Music [G]
Row.[C] [G]
CHORUS:
[G7] For the [C] steel guitars no longer cry, and the [G] fiddles
[C] barely [G] play.
But [A7] drums and rock and roll guitars are [D] mixed up in your
[D7] face.
[G] Old Hank [C] [G] wouldn't have a chance, on [G7] today's
radi[C]o,
Since they committed [G] murder, [D] down on [D7] Music [G] Row.
                                 They [G] thought no [C] one would [G] miss it, once[G7] it was
dead and [C] gone.
They said no one would [G]buy them old drinkin' and cheatin'[D]
songs.[D7]
Well there [G] ain't no[C] justice[G] in it, and the hard[G7]
facts are[C] cold.
Murder's been [G] committed,[D] down on [D7] Music[G] Row. [C]
[G] 
CHORUS:
[G7] For the [C] steel guitars no longer cry, and you [G] can't
hear [C] fiddles [G] play.
With [A7] drums and rock and roll guitars mixed [D] right up in
your [D7] face.
Why the [G] Hag,[C] he wouldn't [G] have a chance on [G7] today's
radi[C]o,
Since they committed [G] murder,[D] down on [D7] Music [G] Row.
[G] Why they'd even [C] tell the [G] Possum, to pack [G7] up and
go back [C] home.
There's been an awful [G] murder,[D] down on [D7] Music [G] Row.
[C] [G]

Capo on the second fret seems to make this better fit the song. IMHO
