Mr. Wild Guitar - Sonny West & The Rhythm Kings

Mr. Wild Guitar

Sonny West & The Rhythm Kings

(West, CROWN, 1990)

Well, I'm a rocking storm and a wild hurricane
Like a runaway freight from a runaway train
They call me Wild Guitar, yeah Mr. Wild Guitar
Well, it can make you laugh and it can make you cry
So if you don't dig it man, you better say goodbye
They call me Mr. Wild, Mr. Wild Guitar

No Christian would have done that, I'm gonna go down
Sold my soul to the devil for that rock 'n' roll sound
They call me Wild Guitar, yeah Mr. Wild Guitar
Well, it can make you laugh and it can make you cry
So if you don't dig it man, you better say goodbye
They call me Mr. Wild, Mr. Wild Guitar

I'm gonna move through your town like a barrow-wight
Gonna move right off, sling you outta your seat [*]
Throw my guitar 'round like a loaded tommy gun
So if you don't dig it, man you better run
You better run man!

Put your fingers in your ears, well you can walk away
But that wild guitar is gonna get you anyway
Mr. Wild Guitar, yeah Mr. Wild Guitar
Well, it can make you laugh and it can make you cry
So if you don't dig it man, you better say goodbye
They call me Mr. Wild, Mr. Wild Guitar
Hit it!

Put your fingers in your ears, well you can walk away
But that wild guitar is gonna get you anyway
Mr. Wild Guitar, yeah Mr. Wild Guitar
Well, it can make you laugh and it can make you cry
So if you don't dig it man, you better say goodbye
They call me Mr. Wild, Mr. Wild Guitar

I'm gonna move through your town like a barrow-wight
Gonna move right off, sling you outta your seat [*]
Throw my guitar 'round like a loaded tommy gun
So if you don't dig it, man you better run
You better run man!

Well, I'm a rocking storm and a wild hurricane
Like a runaway freight from a runaway train
They call me Wild Guitar, yeah Mr. Wild Guitar
Well, it can make you laugh and it can make you cry
So if you don't dig it man, you better say goodbye
They call me Mr. Wild, Mr. Wild Guitar
Hit it!
