Mickey Newbury - "Shuck and Jive" lyrics

Shuck and Jive

Shuck and Jive
Workin' in a two-bit dive
They say rock and roll is still alive
Hey but that is so much Shuck and Jive

Shuck and Jive
Shuck and Jive
Workin' in a two-bit dive
I hear so much Shuck and Jive


Honey darlin'
Sit down by my side
Look into my trusting eyes
Honey baby darlin' would I lie
HA! Shuck and Jive

Shuck and Jive
Workin' in a two-bit dive
They say rock and roll is still alive
Brother that is so much Shuck and Jive

Ahh
Hey darlin' whats your sign
My my you're a lovely thing
ha ha ha ha
Well now I had thought I had heard it all
And then this woman with a Texas drawl
Said now honey can't you shake that thing
I said I was only hired to sing

And he whipped out a 44
Every cracker hit the floor
I can tell ya one thing Jake
Bet your ass I learned to shake

Shuck and Jive
One night in a two-bit dive
Rock and roll was still alive
I was Shuck and Jive

Shuck and Jive
One night in a two-bit dive
Rock and roll was still alive
Shuck and Jive

Yeah she whipped out a 44
Every cracker hit the floor
And I can tell you one thing Jake
You can bet your ass I learned to shake

Shuck and Jive
Shuck and Jive
I was so much Shuck and Jive

Anything you want from me baby..
