Merle's Boogie Woogie


Merle Travis


Capitol Records 1952


ĎBout 12 o'clock gonna close the door

Nobody come & nobody go


I got a boogie woogie feeling

Had it all night long

When I get that feeling

My mama wonít let me come home


Well I got a little girl with great big legs

Looks like she walking on soft boiled eggs


Thereís two kinda people I just canít stand

A lying woman and a sneakiní man


Now what did the rat say to the mouse

I wanna see you down at my house


Six time six is thirty six

Iím going to hit for six more licks
