Hank Williams Jr. - Born To Boogie Lyrics


Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabama

They tied the knot so here I am

Born on the bayou on the Texas Line

Loved in Louisiana and raised on Jambalaya

Now before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand

By the time I could talk I had my own band

Went on the road when I was eight years old

When I turned fifteen I was stealing the show

Money to burn and the girls were pretty

It didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie

When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood

I met Elvis, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode

Got my guitar painted as the California sun

A red Caddilac having too much fun

Now we were playing them halls and jammin'

Then they moved it on over to M.G.M

They said this is the boy we've been telling you about

He lit a cigar and stuck his hand out

He said son have we got a deal for you

I'm gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand too

I told him my Momma didn't raise no fool

I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie

But I can tell ya' right now I was born to boogie

Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon

And I never back down and I love a good challenge

What I do now is what I did then

I like to get down with all my rowdy friends

Now I can be sweet and I can be mean

I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans

My shades are chrome, my guitar steel

If you think I won't then believe me I will

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

I was put here to party and I was born to boogie
