Born To Boogie
Hank Williams Jr.
[Intro] E [Verse 1] E Well my 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 D A E Loved Louisiana and raised on Jambalaya [Verse 2] E Now before 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 E When I turned fifteen I was stealing the show. B Money to burn and the girls were pretty E It didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie. [Verse 3] E When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode, A Got my guitar painted in the California sun E D A E A red caddilac having to much fun. [Verse 4] E 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, D A F# He lit a cigar and stuck his hand out. [Verse 5] F# He said son have we got a deal for you Gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too. B I told him my Momma didn't raise no fool. F# B I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie C# But I can tell ya' right now I am born to boogie.
