song lyric about the "curative" aspects of Bluegrass music

 

The Bluegrass Cure

 

You don't need to take those drugs,

Just take a shot of Flatt & Scruggs,

When your spirits are running low

Try a little Bill Monroe,

Pour them in with all the others

And add a dash of Stanley Brothers.

 

Stir it all up,

Drink it all down,

Cool your temperature,

For stress and strain

And worry pain

Try the bluegrass cure.

 

If you feel like a hopeless case

Take a dose of doghouse bass,

Let Doc Watson treat your ills

You won't need those other pills,

Get out of bed, throw off your covers

And take a shot of Louvin Brothers.

 

Stir it all up,

Drink it all down,

Cool your temperature,

For stress and strain

And worry pain

Try the bluegrass cure.

 

Nothing in those doctor's bags

Is half as good as Ricky Skaggs,

Trade your buffered aspirin

For a banjo and a mandolin,

Mix them all with one another

Then sprinkle in some Osborne Brothers.

 

Stir it all up,

Drink it all down,

Cool your temperature,

For stress and strain

And worry pain

Try the bluegrass cure.
