PISTOL BOOGIE
(Clayton McMichen)
DICK STRATTON & THE NITE OWLS (TENNESSEE 795-45)

The gals down south are doin' the pistol boogie
It's a bang bang baby with a pistol boogie woogie
Boogie here, woogie there, boogie woogie everywhere
Bang bang baby pistol boogie woogie everywhere

Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out

My baby's got a pistol and she knows how to use it
Stand back fellows, now my baby's gonna shoot it
A long stem barrel called a left hand wheeler
If you're gonna play the game, she will be the dealer
I asked her papa if I could have his daughter
He said, yes by golly, you can have her if you want her
No be-bop is gonna get my sugar pookie
She kinda slow the waltz to kinda do the boogie woogie

Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out

The gals down south are doin' the pistol boogie
It's a bang bang baby with a pistol boogie woogie
Boogie here, woogie there, boogie woogie everywhere
Bang bang baby pistol boogie woogie everywhere

Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
Hold it down, I can't get my pistol out
