Hank Jr.
Album: Born To Boogie
Submitted by: Christopher R.


   (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
