 Shotgun Boogie Lyrics


There it stands in the corner with the barrel so straight

I looked out the winder and over the gate

The big fat rabbits are jumpin' in the grass

Wait 'till they hear my old shotgun blast


Shotgun boogie, I done saw your track

Look out Mr. Rabbit when I cock my hammer back


Well, over on the ridge is a scaly bark

Hickory nuts so big you can see'em in the dark

The big fat squirrels, they scratch and they fight

I'll be on that ridge before daylight


With a shotgun boogie, all I need is one shot

Look out bushy-tails, tonight you'll be in the pot


Well, I met a pretty gal, she was tall and thin

I asked her what she had, she said a Fox four-ten

I looked her up and down, said boy this is love

So we headed for the brush to shoot a big fat dove


Shotgun boogie, boy the feathers flew

Look out Mr. Dove when she draws a bead on you


I sat down on a log, took her on my lap

She said wait a minute bud, you got to see my pap

He's gotta sixteen gauge choked down like a rifle

He don't like a man that's gonna trifle


Shotgun boogie, draws a bead so fine

Look out big boy, he's loaded all the time


Well, I called on her pap like a gentleman oughter

He said no brush hunter's gonna get my daughter

He cocked back the hammer right on the spot

When the gun went off I outrun the shot


Shotgun boogie, I wanted weddin' bells

I'll be back little gal, when your pappy runs out of shells
