HERE AT THE GRAND OLE OPRY:
I went to Nashville TN.
Some years ago.
To Daniel at the Ryman Auditorium,
How I enjoyed it so.
We stayed at "The Gaylords Hotel".
An excellent place to stay.
I would dearly love to return there,
Despite it being a long, long way.
We visited "The Grand Ole Opry".
Where the tourists were shown around.
The "Green Room" was shown to us,
Also dressing rooms of the renown.
We then stood "Centre Stage".
Where so many famous people have stood.
Then the guide told us to sing a song,
Just as if we would?
Eventually he persuaded us,
To sing "You Are My Sunshine".
To think we sang at "The Grand Ole Opry"
Did our hearts just fine.
It was a lovely day.
Full of memories I recall.
Singing on "Centre Stage",
We certainly had a ball.
