Kenny Jones (Country Knows Best)

This is a song 'bout an old country singer friend of mine
His name is Kenny Jones
He was a small town legend from Tennessee
He went in search of the big city with some dreams he was lookin' for
But things kind of got off track a bit
But of course you know he's always welcome back, right here to Tennessee
Kenny Jones grew up in a little Tennessee town

When he played the gee-tar and all the people gathered 'round
Been playin' country music since the day that Kenny was born
When he left his Tennessee town with these words to Kenny I did warn
This is what I said:

Who knows all, who knows best
Whether you're in the East, you're in the West
Go get your cowboy boots and your special vest
Cause country music knows the best

Kenny left the Grand Ol' Opry, lookin' for fortune and fame
Packed his bags off to Hollywood, tryin' to make himself a name
Bright lights, big city and Kenny's lookin' for a hit
Tryin' to make some money, but Kenny ain't makin' shit
Well he turned his back on Country, now Kenny's playin' rock and roll
Didn't look where he's going, and Kenny fell into a hole
City's like a railroad car then it went off track
Now he's coming home to Nashville, where Kenny's always welcome back
And this is what we say:

Who knows all, who knows best
Whether you're in the East, you're in the West
Go get your cowboy boots and your special vest
Cause country music knows.........
