Shotgun Boogie Recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford Words and music by Tennessee Ernie Ford
G There it stands in the corner with the barrel so straight
I looked out the window and over the gate C The big fat rabbits are a-jumpin' in the grass G Wait'll they hear my old shotgun blast C G Shotgun Boogie I done saw your tracks D7 G Look out Mr. Rabbit when I cock my hammer back
Well over on the ridge is a scaly bark
Hickory nuts so big you can see 'em in the dark C The big fat squirrels they scratch and they bite G I'll be on that ridge before daylight with C G Shotgun Boogie all I need is one shot D7 G Look out bushy tail tonight you'll be in the pot
Well I met a pretty gal she was tall and thin
I asked her what she had she said a fox 410 C I looked her up and down and said boy this is love G So we headed for the brush to shoot a big fat Dove C G Shotgun Boogie boy the feathers flew D7 G Look out Mr. Dove when she draws a bead on you
I sat down on a log took her on my lap
She said wait a minute bud you got to see my pap C He's got a 16-gauge choked down like a rifle G He don't like a man that's a-gonna trifle C G Shotgun Boogie draws a bead so fine D7 G Look out big boy he's loaded all the time
Well I called on her pap like a gentleman oughter
He said no brush hunter's gonna get my daughter C He cocked back the hammer right on the spot G When the gun went off I outran the shot C G Shotgun Boogie I wanted wedding bells D7 G I'll be back little gal when your pappy runs out of shells
