Born To Boogie

Song Author Hank Williams Jr. Performer: Hank Williams Jr. Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabam

They tied the knot so here I am
[F]Born in the bayou on the Texas line
[C]Loved in Lousiana raised on Jambalaya


Well before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand

By the time I could talk I had my own band
[F]Went on the road when I was 8 years old
[C]When I turned 15 I was stealing the show
[G7]Money to burn and the girls were pretty
Didn´t [C]take me long to learn it I was born to boogie


When I was 18 I went to Hollywood

I met Elvis and Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode
[F]I got my guitar painted with the California sun
[C]Had a red Cadillac having too much fun


Well we were playing them halls in Virginia and then

We moved it on over to MGM
[F]He said this is the boy we´ve been telling you about
[C]He lit a cigar and he stuck his hand out


He said son have we got a deal for you

Were gonna make you a star and give you 50,000 tunes
[F]I told you my momma didn´t raise no fool
[C]I´ll take your money [F]I´ll make you movies
[G7]I can tell you right now I was born to boogie


[C]Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon

And I never back down and I love a good challenge
[F]What I do now is what I did then
[C]I like to get down with all my rowdy friends


Well I can be sweet and I can be mean

I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans
[F]My shades are chrome my guitar is steel
[C]If you think I won´t then believe me I will
[G7]Get down with me baby cause I ain´t no rookie
I was [C]born to party and I was born to boogie


Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabam

They tied the knot so here I am
Born in the bayou on the Texas line
Loved in Lousiana raised on Jambalaya

Well before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand

By the time I could talk I had my own band
Went on the road when I was 8 years old
When I turned 15 I was stealing the show
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
Didn´t take me long to learn it I was born to boogie

When I was 18 I went to Hollywood

I met Elvis and Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode
I got my guitar painted with the California sun
Had a red Cadillac having too much fun

Well we were playing them halls in Virginia and then

We moved it on over to MGM
He said this is the boy we´ve been telling you about
He lit a cigar and he stuck his hand out

He said son have we got a deal for you

Were gonna make you a star and give you 50,000 tunes

Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon

And I never back down and I love a good challenge
What I do now is what I did then
I like to get down with all my rowdy friends

Well I can be sweet and I can be mean

I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans
My shades are chrome my guitar is steel
If you think I won´t then believe me I will
Get down with me baby cause I ain´t no rookie
I was born to party and I was born to boogie
