BLUES STAY AWAY FROM ME
by the Delmore Brothers

1) Blues stay away from me
Blues why don’t you let me be
Don’t know why you keep on haunting me

2) Love was never meant for me
True love was never meant for me
Seems somehow we never can agree

3) Life is full of misery
Dreams are like a memory
Bringing back your love that used to be

4) Tears so many I can’t see
Years don’t mean a thing to me
Time goes by and still I can’t be free

THREE ALLEY CATS
by Roy Hall

1) Well the old jukebox was throwin’ out the beat
The cats and the gators were shakin’ their feet
The tune they were playin’ was right in the groove
And I’m tellin’ you man they were startin’ to move
Then all of a sudden, standin’ in the door
Were three shaggy cats that we’d never dug before
They said as we started, to give ’em a heave
Let us play one crazy before we leave

CHORUS
They were rockin’, yeah the were rockin’
They were rockin and rollin with a real gone crazy beat

2) Now man the way they started was something to see
Two drums and a trumpet and 88 keys
The cat on the ivories was giving them the sock
The skins and the horn well they started to rock
We stood flat footed, our eyes on the stems
We dug the music looked straight at them
We said "who are you fellows and where do you hang your hats ?"
They said "we’re three Georges they call the Alley Cats"

CHORUS

3) Well the Alley Cats started to turn on the steam
We hit the floor dancin’ and we started to scream
The joint went wild as the night got old
But time didn’t matter ’cause we rocked and rolled
The moon went down, the stars did too
We kept on dancin’ the whole night through
I’m tellin’ you man and you can bet your hat
We got a date Saturday with those Alley Cats

CHORUS : And we’ll be rockin’...

dirt
And mother’s down in the country, and papa ain’t home from work

CHORUS : We’re gonna gonna gotta rock bop, bop, bop, bop, baby rock
We’re gonna rock it up right, we’re gonna rock all night
We’re gonna rock it up right all night til the broad daylight

2) She wears the blue lace on her slippers, white lace on her hands
If I saw her out-a playing with another guy, I’m sure I’d slay that
man, man, man

CHORUS
(INTRO + let’s rock !)

3) My hound dog lives in the country, landlord lives in town
But my baby ain’t got a home, ’cause she just rocks around

CHORUS : she...

4) I remember when I met her, I could swing on my front porch
Ain’t known her long but I can’t go home, ’cause I sure do like to
go, go, go

CHORUS
INTRO (fade)

ROLL THAT RIG
by Little Ben and the Cheers

1) Headlight pickin’ up cracks in the slab, I got my foot on the floor,
movin’ this cab
Trailer swaying, buckin’ the wind, broken out windows and the rain
comin’ in
Tailight blinkin’ like I’m sendin’ in code, runnin’ slick all over
the road
My load is shift’ I’ve got a flappin’ tarp, narrow bridges, and the
curve is sharp
I make it straight and pull out
If these brakes fail ; feel like old Daniel Boone blazin’ a trail

2) Ground a big pound of gear on that last hill, goin’ up was a pain,
comin’ down was a thrill
Down in the valley heard in the short : "take the yellow light to the
river fork"
Needle on the tachs lyin’ over on the back, flat bottom motor’s out
at ten mile track
Little water on the pipes don’t slow me up, see the light on the turnpike
going to have a cup
Of strong black coffee, see my cute little friend
Tight uniform, boy is it warm, pretty smile and stretch awhile...
And roll that rig again

ROCK-A-BILLY
by Guy Mitchell

CHORUS
Rockabilly, rockabilly, rockabilly rock
Rockabilly, rockabilly, rock, rock, rock
Rockabilly, rockabilly, rockabilly rock
Rockabilly, rockabilly : rock rock !

1) Some people think it came from Tennessee
Then spread on out to the lone prairie
It’s a hillbilly rock, feedle dee dee
Turns me inside out. Give me some...

CHORUS

2) Hey grab youself a partner, lose the blues
Wear your store-bought clothes and your stomping shoes
Better head for the hills, gonna blow my fuse
Ooh, I’m going to shout. Give me some...

CHORUS

3) Since rockabilly swang the do-si-do
And the guitar man chased the old banjo
Leave the hoe for the crow, holler go man go !
Wiggle like a trout. Gimme some...

CHORUS

4) From the moment that you feel this crazy beat
You got to lose control of your two left feet
Give me mountain juice, turn me loose
leave me wave my arms about. Give me...

CHORUS

CODA
You know what rockabilly’s all about
You know it’s going to make you sing and shout
You know you’re going to act like a crazy fool
Who cares ? It’s cool
Rockabilly, rockabilly, ooh, rock rock

ROCKABILLY HOP

Everybody’s going to a rockabilly hop

Everybody’s coming from far and wide

CHORUS : A-rockabilly, rockabilly, rockabilly hop 3x
Rockin’ and a-rollin’ on a mountain top

Their pant leg rolled up to their knees
Their hair done up in a pony tail
You can hear them holler comin’ up that trail

CHORUS :

Virginia reels to the rock ’n’ roll
They’re doin’ the walk and they’re doin’ the bop

DIXIE FRIED
by Carl Perkins

1) Well on the outskirts of town there’s a little night spot
Dan dropped in about five o’clock
Pulled off his coat, said the night is short
He reached in his pocket and he flashed a quart and hollered :

CHORUS :
Rave on children I’m with you, rave on cats he cried
It’s almost dawn and the cops are gone, and let’s all get dixie fried

2) Now Dan got happy and he started raving
He jerked out his razor but he wasn’t shaving
And all the cats knew to jump and hop
’Cause he was born and raised in a butcher shop, he hollered :

CHORUS

3) The cops heard Dan when he started to shout
They all ran in to see what it was about
And I heard him holler when they lead him away
He turned his head and this is what he had to say :

CHORUS

4) Now Dan was the bravest man that we ever saw
He let us all know he wasn’t scared of the law
And through the black cross bars he tossed a note to his dear
It ain’t my fault, hon’, that I’m in here, but hollered :

CHORUS :
Rave on children I’m with you, rave on cats he cried
It’s almost dawn and the cops ain’t gone, and I’ve been dixie fried

They took a record from the jukebox and they bid my gal goodbye

She’d rather spend her life on a honkytonk hardwood floor

and that mean old honky tonkin’ life’ll get the beat of you

A lovin’ pit is a drive-in movie

A GAL NAMED JO
by Malcolm Yelvington

1) Well I got a gal, her name is Jo
She says she came from Mexico
But I think she hails from Idaho
’Cause she’s got the kind of rhythm that makes you go
Whoah ho, feeling low,
I’m going downtown to see my gal named Jo

2) Well she’s what you call a 6 by 8
Shakes all over like jelly on a plate
And when you look her in the eye
She makes you holler "hoo la la !"
Whoah ho, feeling low,
I’m going downtown to see my gal named Jo

3) Well I called her on, the phone last night
Asked her if she was doing all right
She said to me : "let’s do the town."
I said : "yeah ! I’ll be right down."
Whoah ho, feeling low,
I’m going downtown to see my gal named Jo

4) Now listen to me, all of my pals
You better quit foolin’ with my gal
If you don’t you’ll sure die young
’cause I’ll shoot you down with my Gattling gun
Whoah ho, feeling low,
I’m going downtown to see my gal named Jo
