ON THE COVER OF THE MUSIC CITY NEWS
(Buck Owens, James B Shaw, Shel Silverstein) Recorded by Buck Owens

Well, we're country singers, we got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go (ah ha!)
We do our pickin' and we do our grinin'
For ten thousand dollars a show
We get all kinds of thrills from all kinds of deals
But the one we never knew
Is the one that'll getcha when you get yer pitcher
On the cover of the MUSIC CITY NEWS

MUSIC CITY NEWS
Gonna see my pitcher on the cover
NEWS
Gonna buy five copies for my mother
NEWS
Gonna see my smilin' face
On the cover of the
MUSIC CITY NEWS

Got a big long bus with a driver named GUS
That shines our cowboy boots (that's right)
Got a custom made car with a built-in bar
And a closet full of NUDIE suites
We fly jet airplanes and drink pink champagne
With folks like Howard Hughes
And we keep gettin' richer but we can't get our pitcher
On the cover of the MUSIC CITY NEWS

CHORUS

We got some snuff queen babies and some back stage ladies
With furs and diamond rings
We got aunts and uncles and shirt-tail cousins
like you ain't never seen
We got all the friends that money can buy
So we never have to sing the blues
And they all call us mister but we can't get our picture
On the cover of the MUSIC CITY NEWS

CHORUS

I have that somewhere Also credited to Shel Silverstein but with different lyrics and titled 'Cover of the Rolling Stone' A mate and
I tried to write a parody 'Cover of the Bucks Free Press' without a great deal of success.
