Shotgun Boogie

  		There it C stands in the corner with the barrel so straight 
I looked out the window and over the gate 
The F big, fat rabbits are a-jumpin' in the grass 
C Wait'll they hear my old shotgun blast (*) 
Shot-{F} gun Boogie (* * * *) I done saw your C tracks ... 
Look G out Mr. Rabbit when I G7 cock my hammer C back. 
 
Well, over on the ridge is a (*scaley bark) 
Hick'er nuts so big you can see 'em in the dark 
The big fat Squirrels they scratch and they bite 
I'll be on that ridge before daylight (*) 
Shot-gun Boogie (* * * *) all I need is one shot ... 
Look out bushy tail, tonight you'll be in the pot. 
 
Well, I met pretty gal she was tall and thin 
I asked her what she had, she said: "A FOX 410." 
I looked her up and down and said: "Boy, this is love." 
So we headed for the brush to shoot a big fat Dove (*) 
Shot-gun 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, bub, you got to see my pap, 
He's got a 16-gauge choked down like a rifle 
He don't like a man that's a-gonna trifle." (*) 
Shot-gun 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 outran the shot (*) 
Shot-gun Boogie (* * * *) I wanted wedding bells ... 
I'll be back little gal, when your pappy runs out of shells.
