The Statler Brothers — Chet You're The Reason lyrics

There was a group of little guys grew up together
In the fifties when rock and roll was hot
And every time they turned on a radio station
Chuck Berry and Little Richard was all they got
And then one night they heard the country gentleman
Playing something new in a brand new way
Chet would you play
[ guitar ]
Still hear him today
[ guitar ]
Chet you're the reason we're country today
[ dobro ]
We only met but never got to know him
Till our first tv special years ago
So then we called and asked him
If he'd come by and do a little picking on our show
And there we sat in front of all America
Like we used to sit in front of our radios
Chet would you play
[ guitar ]
Still hear him today
[ guitar ]
Chet you're the reason we're country today
[ dobro - guitar ]
Chet you're the reason we're country today
