Old Country Songs With Chords

THIS COLLECTION OF VINTAGE COUNTRY LYRICS with chords, includes some 800 songs from the "Golden Era" of country music, roughly spanning between the late 1920's to about 1960 and includes songs from artists like Vernon Dalhart, Cliff Carlisle, Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers, Jimmie Rodgers, Uncle Dave Macon, Eddy Arnold , Sons of the Pioneers, Spade Cooley, Roy Acuff, Tex Williams, Bob Wills, Roy Rogers, Hank Williams snr., Bill Monroe, Red Foley, Al Dexter, Gene Autry, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Lefty Frizzell, Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash and many others. Often these old songs are wrongly thought to be Dolly Parton Lyrics, Johnny Cash lyrics, Alison Krauss lyrics etc or to come from some other more modern artists, truth is, many popular country artists particularly favour these good old songs and so become associated with songs that originate much earlier.

These transcriptions are made by many different individuals from all over the world for their own research and instruction and as such should not be considered definitive "official" versions, or representative of any particular artist or performance. They are being shared on this site for educational purposes only, please see our copyright page for more info.

Country Music, a Short Definition:

Country music (or country and Western) is a blend of popular musical forms originally found in the Southern United States and the Appalachian Mountains. It has roots in traditional folk music, Celtic music, gospel music and old-time music and evolved rapidly in the 1920s. The term country music began to be used in the 1940s when the earlier term hillbilly music was deemed to be degrading and the term was widely embraced in the 1970s, while Country and Western has declined in use since that time. In the Southwestern United States a different mix of ethnic groups created the music that became the Western music of the term Country and Western. The term "country music" is used today to describe many styles and sub genres most of which, with a few exceptions, have little merit, and bare not much resemblance to the master works of the 1930's to the 1960's
