BOB WILLS IS STILL THE KING

THERE' S A HONKYTONK IN DALLAS
AND A BAR IN OLD FORT WORTH
YOU THROW A QUARTER IN THE JUKEBOX,
AND YOU GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH.

FADED LOVE AND MAIDEN'S PRAYER
AND OLD SAN ANTONIO ROSE
HOW I LOVE THAT TEXAS TWOSTEP,
WESTERN SWING AND DOSIDOS.

THERE'S ONE MAN WHO PLAYED THIS MUSIC,
AND HE STARTED EVERYTHING:

BOB WILLS IS STILL THE KING OF WESTERN SWING,
I BET HE'D HOLLER IF HE COULD HEAR US SING
BOB WILLS IS STILL THE KING OF WESTERN SWING,
THERE'S NO DOUBT AT ALL ABOUT IT,
BOB WILLS IS STILL THE KING.

THE OLD COMMANDER AND HIS AIRMEN,
THEY PLAYED THAT SWINGING SOUND SO WELL,
AND ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL HAVE COME BACK
EVEN STRONGER, I CAN TELL.

MERLE HAGGARD AND THE STRANGERS
THEY PLAY THOSE SWINGING FIDDLE LICKS,
THERE'S GEORGE STRAIT AND RANDY TRAVIS,
AND THAT BAND ROUTE SIXTY-SIX.

THEY ALL KEEP ALIVE THAT WESTERN SWING,
AND ALL PAY THEIR TRIBUTE TO THE KING:

BOB WILLS...
