We were out on tour, getting ready to do a show It wasn't anything special, just another one night stand When I looked over my guitar there stood an old man His clothes were fraid and worn, his boots were far from new He said I'd like to sit in with your band, see I'm a country singer too Well we all had a big laugh and when I looked back at the old man there was a tear in his eye So I told the boys to cool it cause I didn't want to see him cry Well (he picked up my old guitar and) with a determined look on his face And as he started to sing and play a look of sadness took it place He said I've sang my songs from Maine to California Seen the world thru the window of a car I never saved a dime back when I made one Cause I always thought some day I'd be a star But now my voice is cracked and no one wants me My wife gave up on me years ago Its been so long my kids don't even know me And pickin' and singin' is the only life I've known And then he said; I wonder if God likes country music Will there be a place up there to sing my songs Will he make my fingers nimble like they used to be So I can play the chords and sing along Well I just stood there, none of us really knew what to say Well he laid my guitar down ever so gently And as he turned to walk away the boys all stood up and applauded And I can still hear his words today I wonder if God likes country music Will there be a place up there to sing my songs Will he make my fingers nimble like they used to be So I can play the chords and sing along
