(E) (E)







Well my (E) momma met my daddy down in Alabama

They tied the knot so here I am.

(A) Born on the bayou on the Texas Line

(E) Loved in Louisanana and raised on Jabalaya. (D) (A) (E)

Now be(E)fore I could walk I had a guitar in my hand

By the time I could talk I had my own band,

(A) Went on the road when I was eight years old

When I (E) turned fifteen I was stealing the show.

(B) Money to burn and the girls were pretty

It didn't (E) take me long to learn that I was born to boogie.

(E) (E)

(E) When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood

I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode,

Got my (A) guitar painted with the California sun

A (E) red Cadillac having to much fun. (D) (A) (E)

Now we were (E) playing them halls and jammin' them

Until they moved me on over to M.G.M.

They said (A) this is the boy we've been telling you about,

He (No Chord) lit a cigar and stuck his hand out. (D) (A) (F#)

--key change--

He said (F#) son have we got a deal for you

Gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too.

I (B) told him my Momma didn't raise no fool.

(C#) I'll take your money, (B) I'll make your movies

But I can (C#) tell ya' right now I was born to boogie.

--key change--

Well my (E) name is Bocephus - I drink whiskey by the gallon

And I never back down and I love a good challenge

(A) What I do now is what I did then

I (E) like to get down with all my rowdy friends. (D) (A) (E)

Now (E) I can be sweet and I can be mean

I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans

My (A) shades are chrome my guitar is steel

If (E) you think I won't then believe me I will

Get (B) down on you baby because I ain't no rookie

I was (No Chord) put here to party and I was born to boogie

Fade out...
