Chattanooga Shoe Shine Boy  (1950)

Have you ever passed the corner of Fourth and Grand
Where a little ball of rhythm has a shoe shine stand?
People gather 'round and they clap their hands
He's a great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

He charges you a nickel just to shine one shoe
He makes the oldest kind of leather look like new
You feel as though you want to dance when he gets through
He's a great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

It's a wonder that the rag don't tear the way he makes it pop
You ought to see him fan the air
With his hoppity hippity hoppity hippity hop-hop-hop!

He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get 'em early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise and shine
From the great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

It's a wonder that the rag don't tear the way he makes it pop
You ought to see him fan the air
With his hoppity hippity hoppity hippity hop-hop-hop!

He opens up for business when the clock strikes nine
He likes to get 'em early when they're feelin' fine
Everybody gets a little rise and shine
From the great big bundle of joy
He pops a boogie woogie rag, the Chattanooga shoe shine boy

The Chattanooga shoe shine boy

Lyrics by Harry Stone and Jack Stapp.
Recorded by Red Foley; Freddy Cannon; Leon McAuliffe.

My Gal Country Style  (1966)

Now I got a gal country style
The one for her kisses I'd walk a mile
She's the sweetest thing around these parts

When she rolls those eyes at me
I get a weakness in my knees
She's completely stole away my heart

She got pigs in the pigpen, ducks in the pond
Hens in the henhouse, cows in the barn
She can cook, she can sew
That's some of the reasons why I love her so

When she fixes turnip greens
Cornbread and butter beans
I know that she is my gal country style

Her dresses are made of flour sacks
She bends that ??? ??? way, way back
She likes to feel the mud ooze 'tween her toes

She holds her own at splitting logs
She won a blue ribbon for calling hogs
She is my gal country style you know

She got ham in the smokehouse, honey in the hive
Money in the National, man alive!
She had an old horse, almost dead
She swapped him off for a thoroughbred

She can dance, she can sing
I'm gonna buy her a wedding ring
I know that she is my gal country style

Yes, know that she is my gal country style

Lyrics by Jim Robinson and Johnny A. Wilson.
Recorded by Red Foley.
