"Born To Boogie" lyrics

Born To Boogie

I 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-picking away
Seemed like the sun
Would never go down
So we could clap our hands
And gather around

And do the boogie
Yeah, I learned the rhythm
And it wasn't very long
Till I was doing 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-waiting
And the music was hot

Born to boogie
Lord, I got the 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
With lots of rhythm
Lord, I learned to move
By doing that boogie woogie rhythm
And like this I did the boogie

Born to boogie, yeah
Born to boogie, yeah
Full of rhythm
Go cat
Born to boogie, yeah
One more time
Born to boogie, ooh
Born to boogie, yeah
