Hank Williams Jr. - Born To Boogie Lyrics

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.

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.

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, Marilyn and Johnny B. Goode,
Got my guitar painted in the California sun
A red caddilac having to much fun.

Now we were playing them halls and jammin'
Then until they moved me 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
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 am 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 chromo my guitar is steal
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

  1. Melissa Kerns

    I still love to get down and party with a cold one on Friday night

  2. Kelsey Grant

    Love it

  3. Wes Collins

    One of my fondest memories as a child is being in the drivers seat of my daddies 18 wheeler blasting this song as we burned the roads up going all over

  4. Mikie's Mustangs

    I love this man lol one of the greatest ever

  5. CreeperSquad

    like to vote for the confederate flag to be welcomed again


    @Azahliya Snow what weird ass screwed up religion did you come from to get that information? That is legit a lie.

    Nirvana Lynn

    CreeperSquad The Constitution says, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them.” The confederates did exactly that. They were U.S. citizens who took up arms against their own government. Also, keep in mind that the flag most consider the confederate flag is actually a battle flag. A battle flag that was flown as confederate soldiers slaughtered American soldiers. Flying the confederate flag is dishonoring your country, spitting on the idea of patriotism, and stomping on the sacrifices brave men and women have made for us all.


    @Azahliya Snow never in my life have I heard anyone tell me that phrase when I talk about this flag. Never in my life have I even heard of that phrase period. If you’re telling the truth then how the hell have I gone this long without hearing anything of this until now


    Also it’s not that they were fighting, it’s what they were fighting for. Which was slavery. So yeah

    Nirvana Lynn

    CreeperSquad I think most of it is just ignorance of the background. However, those who do know mostly choose to ignore it because they don’t want to change anything.
