Johnny Cash - Luther Played The Boogie Woogie Lyrics

 

We were just a plain ol' hillbilly band with a plain ol' country style

We never played the kind of songs that'd drive anybody wild

Played a railroad song with a stomping beat

We played a blues song, kinda slow and sweet

But the thing that knocked them off of their feet was, ooh-wee

When Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie

Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie

Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie

Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie in the strangest kind of way

Play it strange!

 

Well, we did our best to entertain everywhere we'd go

We'd nearly wear our fingers off to give the folks a show

Played jumping jive to make 'em get in the groove

We played sad songs, real slow and smooth

But the only thing that'd make 'em move was, ooh-wee

When Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie

Luther played the boogie woogie, Luther played the boogie woogie

Luther played the boogie

 

Now, did Luther play the boogie strange?
