The Lyrics

HARDLY NO ONE SMILES IN BLUEGRASS MUSIC

Chorus:
Hardly no one smiles in Bluegrass Music.
Them pickers don't have snickers on their chins.
No one hardly smiles in Bluegrass Music.
You'd think to smile while pickin' is a sin.

1) It could be 'cause them songs are sad and lonesome.
A short life of trouble takes its toll.
Maybe it's from all the concentration.
It takes a lot to execute them rolls.

Chorus

2) I had a real strange dream t'other night, dear.
Ernest Tubb and Bill Monroe were there.
Somehow they was a awful false teeth mix up.
And Bill walked out a smiling without a care.

Chorus

3) Then I dreamed I died and went to Bluegrass Heaven.
God and Jesus and the Bluegrass Saints was there.
They was all a pickin' and a smilin'
With teeth like Ernest Tubb's, I do declare!

Chorus

4) When I awoke I just set there a thinkin'
If the Bluegrass Father was Ernest Tubb somehow.
We'd all be a smilin' while a pickin'
With flashin' teeth and dentures takin' bows.

Chorus:
Yes, hardly no one smiles in Bluegrass Music.
Them pickers don't have snickers on their chins.
No one hardly smiles in Bluegrass Music.
You'd think to smile while pickin' is a sin.

I'm a pickin mandolin while I smile... (tune here is like first line in Walkin' the Floor)
Yodel aye hee who, yodel aye hee who, yodel aye hee... (standard Blue Yodel - and try to smile while yodelin')
