Jimmie Rodgers Broke The First Country Heart
(07/06/2008) (song#5518)

It was the first country dance
Song of a country romance
A country boy loved a country girl
It was the first country song
About a love that went wrong
In the first honky tonk in the world

It was the first steel guitar
And the first crying fiddle
And city folks all called it plain dirt
It was the first country tune
Neath a country harvest moon
Before the first country hearts got hurt
Jimmie Rodgers broke the first country heart

- instrumental -

It was the first country song
About a love that went wrong
Played on the first country jukebox jive
It was the first country tear
Was shed for some country dear
First country love that didn't survive

We hear no more his guitar
He was the first country star
But his songs tear us apart
It was the first country song
About a love that went wrong
Jimmie Rodgers broke the first country heart
