Rhythm And Booze - Corky Jones

Rhythm And Booze

Corky Jones

(Buck Owens, PEP 107, 1956)

Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Well, it was rock 'n' roll rhytm and a bottle of booze
And a wild wild woman that was hot on the loose
Well, she warned me once and then she warned me twice
But that woman found out that I don't take advice
It was rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
Rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
To tell the truth baby, it was rhythm and booze

If I'd listened to my mama, if I'd listened to my dad
I'd be a-sleepin' on a soft feathered bed
But there's just some things that a man can't be told
And it's me for one, and I just had to be showed
Rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
Rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
To tell the truth baby, it was rhythm and booze

I lost my baby and then I lost my stack
I didn't mind so much until I lost my Cadillac
I'll give up my dancin' and I'll give up my booze
If you come home honey, I'll even throw away my blue suede shoes
Rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
Rhythm rhythm rhythm and booze
To tell the truth baby, it was rhythm and booze
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

Corky Jones is an alias for Buck Owens
Rhythm and Booze was also recorded by The Leroy Brothers
