The Lyrics

This song refers to the time when TNN was transformed from a country music network to a masculine-related network. Gaylord is the company that used to own TNN
(fiddle intro)

Nobody saw them running
From Sixth Avenue
They never found the fingerprints
Or the weapons that were used
But someone killed The Nashville Network
Destroyed its heart and soul
They got away with murder
Down on Gaylord Row

The bigshots wanted money
And the lust for national fame
They wanted something different
And for that someone should hang (Ah, you tell 'em, brother)
They all said not guilty
But the evidence will show
That murder was commited
Down on gaylord row

For the country stars no longer sing
And the videos never play
'Cause wrestling and Roller Jam
Are mixed up in your face
The Grand Ole Opry, it wouldn't stand a chance
With todays TNN shows
Since they commited murder
Down on Gaylord Row

(fiddle interlude)

They said no one would miss it
Once it was dead and gone
No one would ever watch those old
Hunting and fishin' shows
There's no justice in it
And it just comes to show
Someone's commited murder
Down on Gaylord Row

repeat chorus

Why they'd even tell Ralph Emery
To pack up and go back home
There's been an awful murder
Down on Gaylord Row

I gave "funny" a 3 because it really isn't "funny", but this parody is right-on.
