      About "The Way It Was In '51"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "The Way It Was In '51"

      Sixty-six was still a narrow two-lane highway
      Harry Truman was the man who ran the show
      The bad Korean war was just beginning
      And I was just three years too young to go
      Country Music hadn't gone to New York City yet
      And a service man was proud of what he'd done
      Hank and Lefty crowded ev'ry jukebox
      That's the way it was in fifty one.

      There's so much about the good old days I'd love to tell
      And there's folks around I know still remember well
      Slow dancin' close together when a ballad played
      'Cause a thing called Rock and Roll was yet to come
      It was a big year for a drive-in rest'rant car hop
      That's the way it was in fifty one.

      There's so much about the good old days I'd love to tell
      And there's folks around I know still remember well
      Slow dancin' close together when a ballad played
      'Cause a thing called Rock and Roll was yet to come
      It was a big year for a drive-in rest'rant car hop
      That's the way it was in fifty one.

      Yeah! Hank and Lefty crowded ev'ry jukebox
      Oh Lord, That's the way it was in fifty one.
