SONG OF SONGS 
Recorded by Boxcar Willie and Willie Nelson 
Written by Vern Stovall, Bill Palmer & Lloene Martin (Boxcar Willie) 
 
Note. To the tune of I'M THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES 
 
G How I love that old melody they're C playing 
I D7 heard it in so many different G songs 
It made stars out of country music C singers 
And some-{D7} how it just keeps playin' G on. 
 
Oh! I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes 
Seems to me it's been around since time began 
It was there with our soldiers during wartime 
And right today, we still hear it, now and then. 
 
Roy Acuff was young country singer 
His records were just starting to be heard 
That old tune took him right up to stardom 
On The Wings Of The Great Speckled Bird. 
 
Hank Thompson is a country music legend 
He sang western swing and songs of peace and strife 
That same tune gave old Hank the break he needed 
On a record called The Wild Side Of Life. 
 
A youny girl made the world stop and listen 
Kitty Wells was that young singer's name 
It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels 
That melody rang clear as country rain. 
 
Oh! those notes must come straight out of heaven 
In so many different songs they were the same 
I know someday they'll be etched in gold forever 
And placed in the Country Music Hall Of Fame. 
 
TAG: And placed in the Couunry Music Hall Of Fame.
