"Sam's Place" is a 1967 country song written by Red Simpson and recorded by Buck Owens. The single went to number one on the country charts spending three weeks at the top and a total of thirteen weeks on the country charts.The song is about a honky-tonk called "Sam's Place," of which the singer is a regular all-night patron ("You can always find me down at Sam's Place from the setting sun until the break of day."). Other patrons include two women who are nicknamed for their dancing abilities and whose real names happen to rhyme with their respective hometowns: "Shimmy-Shakin'" Tina from Pasadena and "Hootchie-Kootchie" Hattie from Cincinnati.

Buck Owens Sam's Place lyrics

There's a place down the street we call Sam's Place

It starts a-jumpin' every evening when the sun goes down

You can always find me down at Sam's Place

For that's where the gang all hangs around

 

There's ol' Shimmy Shakin' Tina

She hails from Pasadena

She always got a big smile on her face

There's Hootch-y-kootchy Hattie, she comes from Cincinnati

Yeah, there's always a party at Sam's Place

 

Well, they've got a swingin' band down at Sam's Place

You can hear 'em pickin' twenty blocks away

They're playin' country music down at Sam's Place

From the setting sun until the break of day

 

There's ol' Shimmy Shakin' Tina

She hails from Pasadena

She always got a big smile on her face

There's Hootch-y-kootchy Hattie, she comes from Cincinnati

Yeah, there's always a party at Sam's Place

 

And I'll meet you tonight at Sam's Place
