Lyrics: 

Save The Last For The Best

Good folks in this town have lived here awhile
Friends and pals all welcome me with a smile
This big homecoming has long been my quest
My old band has saved the last for the best

We’ll save the last one for the best
Then we’ll retire and take our rest
This old band played and met the test
We’ll save the last one for the best

(Instrumental)

Slow the tempo down to a smoother pace
Tune up your fiddle and your mellow bass
Plug in the mike and then boys take the stand
We’ll send ‘em all home strollin’ hand in hand

We’ll save the last one for the best
Then we’ll retire and take our rest
This old band played and met the test
We’ll save the last one for the best

(Instrumental)

These old songs are fadin’ away too fast
We never hear ‘em on the new broadcast
So, let them waltz around the big ballroom
Boys, let’s play that old Blue Kentucky Moon

We’ll save the last one for the best
Then we’ll retire and take our rest
This old band played and met the test
We’ll save the last one for the best

Some good rhyme, good structure. Seems like a good end the dance or night kind of song for slow dancing folk with arms around each other.

The 5th verse is so true. I was listening to Larry the Cable Guy (yes, Larry the Cable Guy) on Sirius XM about how the new country tunes are more about popularity than content, and if you're over 35, you're pretty much forgotten. This verse reminds me of a purer sounding country tune than what I hear today. "Save the last for the best" is a great line, too! Great work as usual. If I knew how to compose and arrange country music, I'd definitely lend a hand.
