Hank Snow – Boogie Woogie Flying Cloud lyrics

I was singin' the blues and now I'm shoutin' hooray
'Cause I met a pretty mama and I met her today
Well, her eyes started cheatin' my heart started beatin' aloud
Like the rhythmatic motors of the Boogie Woogie Flying Cloud.

Now the Flying Cloud is a luxury liner
It flies from San Diego down to Carolina
Then she boogies to Georgia and back to old Alabam
No use denyin' makin' love when you're flyin' is grand.

She's a silver comet every engine in tune
She boogied us out 'neath the silvery moon
The stars started blinkin' when my baby started thinkin' aloud
And told me that she loved me on Boogie Woogie Flying Cloud.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I hugged my baby and we started to kiss
The Flying Cloud's motors all started to miss
She jumped in to jive as the crew started singin' a song
And we headed for Dixie while the Flying Cloud boogied along.

When I told my baby a fortune I'd give 'er
The big plane trembled and she started to quiver
She headed for the sky then she swung and came on back down
But we kept a lovin' as the Flying Cloud boogied around.

Wasn't takin' no chances cause I got a bit scary
Thought I'd wait till we landed then I'd ask her to marry
But changed my mind as we boogied out over the line
And I popped the question as the big Cloud boogied on time.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, she started to truck and then she jumped to hep
She looped the loop but never lost a step
When she started descendin' for a boogie woogie landin' I vowed
I'm preparin' my weddin' on the Boogie Woogie Flying Cloud.

When the big propellers they came to a stop
My old heart inside me went flippity flop
I took my baby and wandered out through the crowd
When we landed in Dixie on the Boogie Woogie Flying Cloud...
