OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Well my momma met my daddy down in Alabama
They tied the knot, so here I am
Born on the bayou on the Texas line
Loved Louisiana and raised on Jambalaya

4 boys promenade one time round
Swing your girl and promenade the town
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
I'll tell ya right now I was born to boogie


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, swing thru
Boys run, ferris wheel
Pass thru, right & left thru, half sashay
Grand right & left
Swing, promenade
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
I'll tell ya right now I was born to boogie


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Now before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand
By the time I could talk I had my own band
Went on the road when I was eight years old
When I turned fifteen I was stealing the show

4 boys promenade one time round
Swing your girl and promenade the town
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
I'll tell ya right now I was born to boogie


CLOSER    Basic

4 boys promenade go walking round the ring
Come back and swing your baby round I sing
Join hands circle to the left awhile
Left allemande weave the ring
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
I'll tell ya right now I was born to boogie
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
I'll tell ya right now I was born to boogie

Born To Boogie
 
 

Well my Momma met my Daddy down in Alabam'
They tied the knot, so here I am
Born on the bayou on the Texas line
Loved Louisiana and raised on Jambalaya

Now before I could walk I had a guitar in my hand
By the time I could talk I had my own band
I went on the road when I was eight years old
When I turned fifteen I was stealing the show
Money to burn and the girls were pretty
It didn't take me long to learn that I was born to boogie

When I was eighteen I went to Hollywood
I met Elvis and Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode
Got my guitar painted in the California sun
A red Cadillac having too much fun

Now we were playing them halls and jammin' them
And we moved it on over to M.G.M.
They said this is the boy we've been telling you about
He lit a cigar and stuck his hand out

He said, "Son have we got a deal for you
I'm gonna make you a star give you fifty thousand, too"
I told him my Momma didn't raise no fool
I'll take your money, I'll make you a movie
But I can tell ya' right now I was born to boogie

Well my name is Bocephus, I drink whiskey by the gallon
And I never back down and I love a good challenge
What I do now is what I did then
I like to get down with all my rowdy friends

Now I can be sweet and I can be mean
I still got my hat and I still wear my jeans
My shades are chrome, my guitar is steel
If you think I won't, then believe me I will
Get down on you baby, because I ain't no rookie
I was put here to party and I was born to boogie

Lyrics by Hank Williams, Jr..
