'Oddities and Rarities - Boogie Woogie Bluegrass Blues

i wanna hear a boogie woogie bluegrass blues
wanna hear a boogie woogie bluegrass blues
that rockin country might work for you
but me i wanna hear a boogie woogie bluegrass blues

i like my coffee black and sweet
three eggs fried, grits, no meat
gotta watch my weight or i'll get fat
baby tells me it's too late for that

gonna park my rig in your driveway
gonna park my rig in your driveway
don't give rat's ass what your neighbors say
gonna park my rig in your driveway

i drove for the union up in illinois
was an angry young man now i'm just a good ole boy
used to pack a pistol on the picket line
paid union dues and did federal time

betty got her own rig but she don't put out
she's an owner operator, but she don't put out
if you try it on she'll punch your lights out
she's got her own rig but she don't put out

that redneck (or "pencil neck") back there in the rice burner
don't he see i'm makin a right turn
well he gonna learn real real soon
you gotta give a fifty foot trailer a little more room

i'm in a kansas wind with a shifting load
in a kansas wind with a shifting load
rain so hard i can't see the road
in a kansas wind with a shifting load

i'm seeing things i know ain't there
they're comin at me from everywhere
i must've been drivin too long i think
on not enough sleep and too much crank

gonna drop this trailer in baton rouge
gonna drop this trailer in baton rouge
gonna get some work done on these new tattoos
after i drop this trailer in baton rouge

i'm lookin forward to a long hot shower
but i'm paid by the mile not by the hour
gonna drive all night gonna drive straight thru
get back to you

so i can park my rig in your driveway
gonna park my rig in your driveway
don't give rat's ass what your neighbors say
gonna park my rig in your driveway
