Luther Played The Boogie - Johnny Cash

We were just a plain ol' hillbilly band with a plain ol' country style
We never played the kind of songs that'd drive anybody wild
Played a railroad song with a stompin' beat
We played a blues song kinda slow and sweet
But the thing that knocked them off of their feet was oo-wee

When Luther's played the boogie woogie Luther's played the boogie woogie
Luther's played the boogie Luther's played the boogie woogie
Luther's played the boogie Luther's played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie Luther's played the boogie in the strangest kind of way
(Play it strange)
[ guitar ]
Well we did our best to entertrain everywhere we'd go
We'd nearly wear our fingers off just to give the folks a show
We played the jumpin' jive to make 'em get in the groove
We played the sad songs real slow and smooth
But the only thing that we make 'em move was oo-wee

When Luther's played the boogie...
[ guitar ]
(Now didsn't Luther play the boogie strange)
