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
