Born To Boogie Lyrics

was born in a shack in West Tennessee I picked that cotton down upon my knees The sun got hotter each and every day But me and my brothers kept a-pickin' away Seemed like the sun would never go down So we could clap our hands and gather around And do the boogie (boogie) Yeah, I learned the rhythm (boogie woogie rhythm) And it wasn't very long Till I was doin' the boogie woogie rhythm

Well, I prayed all week for Saturday night Turn my back on the sun and put the sack out of sight Take the long dusty road into town My feet kept the rhythm as I walked the hot ground But nothing could keep me from my favourite spot Where the chicks were a-waitin' and the music was hot Born to boogie (boogie) Lord, I got the rhythm (boogie woogie rhythm) And it wasn't very long Till I done the boogie woogie rhythm (Like this I did the boogie)

Well, Monday morning was always bad But it was worth it all for the time I had Lord oh Lordy, how I wish it would rain Just the sun have mercy on a country boy's pain But I make believe everything's all right Gonna do it again come Saturday night I do the boogie (boogie) Yeah-yeah, with lots of rhythm (boogie woogie rhythm) Lord, I learned to move by doin' that boogie woogie rhythm

Born to boogie, yeah Born to boogie, yeah, full of rhythm Born to boogie, yeah, one more time [fade]
