Hank Williams Jr. - Born To Boogie lyrics

Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabam'
They tied the knot so here I am
Born on the bayou on the Texas line
Loved Louisiana and raised on jambalaya

Now 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 eight years old
When I turned fifteen I was stealing the show

Money to burn and the girls were pretty
It didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie

When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood
I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode
Got my guitar painted in the California sun
A red Cadillac having to much fun

Now we were playing them halls and jammin' then
Until they moved me on over to M.G.M
They said this is the boy we've been telling you about
He lit a cigar and stuck his hand out

He said son have we got a deal for you
Gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too
I told him my Momma didn't raise no fool
I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie, but I can tell ya' right now I am born to boogie

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

Now 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 steal
If you think I won't then believe me I will

Get down on you baby because I ain't no rookie
I was put here to party and I was born to boogie
