Boogie Chillen-John Lee Hooker
Spanish tuning at B
(Sung) Well, my Mama, she didn't allow me just to stay out all night long, oh Lord
Well, my Mama didn't allow me just to stay out all night long
I didn't care if she didn't allow--I would boogie-woogie anyhow
(Spoken) When I first come to town, people, I was walkin' down Hastings Street. I heard everybody talking about the Henry's Swing Club. I said, "I got to drop into there tonight." And when I got there--
(Sung) I say, yes, people, yes, they were really havin' a ball
(Spoken) Yes, I know. Boogie, chillen!
(Spoken) One night, I was layin' down. I hear Mama and Papa talkin'. I hear Papa tell Mama "to let that boy boogie. 'Cause it's in him, and it got to come out."
(Sung) Well, I felt so good, and I went on boogie woogiein' just the same.
