R.L. Burnside – Boogie Chillen lyrics
Well, my mama, she didn't 'low me just to stay out all night long, oh, Lord
Well, my mama didn't 'low me just to stay out all night long
I didn't care what she didn't 'low
I would boogie-woogie anyhow
When I first came to town, people, I was walkin' down Hastings Street
Everybody was talkin' about the Henry Swing Club
I decided I drop in there that night
When I got there, I say, "yes, people"
They was really havin' a ball
Yes, I know
Boogie Chillen'
One night I was layin' down
I heard mama and papa talkin'
I heard papa tell mama, "let that boy boogie-woogie
It's in him and it got to come out"
And I felt so good
Went on boogiein' just the same
