Doug Stone – A Jukebox With a Country Song, is a song written by Gene Nelson and Ronnie Samoset, and recorded by American country music artist Doug Stone. It was released in November 1991 as the second single from his album I Thought It Was You. It became his second song to reach #1 on the country chart in both the United States and Canada. The B-side, “Remember the Ride”, was later recorded by Perfect Stranger on their 1995 album You Have the Right to Remain Silent.
In this song, after having an argument with his wife, the narrator goes to have a drink at his old haunt only to find that it has been turned into a high-class fern bar. In utter disbelief for the rest of the song, he is eventually dragged out of the bar, asking what happened to it.

Doug Stone – A Jukebox With a Country Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]
After three good years together, we had our first big fight
So she went to her mothers’ and I went for a drive
Down an old familiar highway, just a few miles out of town
To that rundown one-room tavern that used to be my stomping ground
[Verse 2]
Well I pulled in the driveway, you know it all still looked the same
And I couldn’t wait to down a few and hear that jukebox ring
But as I walked in through the doorway, there stood some kind of Maitre D’
Well he looked me up and he looked me down, said
“May I help you please?” and I said
[Chorus]
What’d you do with those swinging doors
Where’s the sawdust on the floor
Why’s everybody wearing suits and ties
From where I stand I can’t believe my eyes
And whose idea what it to hang these ferns
This brand new bar don’t have a single burn
I guess I’m somewhere that I don’t belong
I need a jukebox with a country song
[Verse 3]
Well I look back to the corner where the jukebox once stood proud
Some fool was playing records, too fast, too long and too loud
And it must have been a big mistake to try to speak my mind
So as they were asking me to leave, I cried out one more time
[Chorus]
What’d you do with those swinging doors
And where’s the sawdust on the floor
Why’s everybody wearing suits and ties
From where I stand I can’t believe my eyes
And whose idea what it to hang these ferns
This brand new bar don’t have a single burn
I guess I’m somewhere that I don’t belong
I need a jukebox with a country song
[Tag]
I guess I don’t belong
Without a jukebox and a country song
