Lyrics

god bless the poor musicians

in the old string bands

when people come to listen

to sing along and clap their hands

sweet music be their fortune

as they roam from near and far

god bless the fiddle and the mandolin

and the girl on the rhythm guitar

 

now tune up for the dancing

gonna turn that crowd around

with a reel and a waltz and a gospel song

for when we pass the hat along

well i'll eat-- that's how i'm paid

then i'll lay my body down

and dream of songs till the sun-up comes

and it's off to another town

 

god bless the poor musicians

in the old string bands

when people come to listen

to sing along and clap their hands

sweet music be their fortune

as they roam from near and far

god bless the fiddle and the mandolin

and the girl on the rhythm guitar

 

well i should have been a farmer's wife

but i could not stay at home

with the music in my head and the rhythm in my heels

well it only made me ramble and roam

i yodel when i'm happy

i sing the blues when i'm alone

but i belong to no one

and i can carry everything i own

 

god bless the poor musicians

in the old string bands

when people come to listen

to sing along and clap their hands

sweet music be their fortune

as they roam from near and far

god bless the fiddle and the mandolin

and the girl on the rhythm guitar
