Boot Scootin’ Boogie Lyrics

Brooks & Dunn

Out in the country
Past the city limits sign
Well there’s a honky tonk
Near the county line
The joint starts jumpin’ every night
When the sun goes down
They got whiskey women music and smoke
It’s where all the cowboy folk
Go to boot scootin’ boogie

I’ve got a good job
I work hard for my money
When it’s quittin’ time I hit the door runnin’
I fire up my pickup truck
And let the horses run
I go flyin’ down the highway
To that hideaway
Stuck out in the woods
To do the boot scootin boogie

Yeah heel toe do si do
Come on baby let’s go boot scootin’
Oh cadillac blackjack baby meet me out back
We’re gonna boogie
Oh, get down, turn around, go to town
Boot scootin’ boogie

The bartender asks me says son what’ll it be
I want a shot at that redhead yonder lookin’ at me
The dance floors hoppin’ and it’s hotter than the fourth of July
I see outlaws, inlaws crooks and straights all out makin’ it shake
Doin’ the boot scootin’ boogie

Yeah heel toe do si do
Come on baby let’s go boot scootin’
Oh cadillac blackjack baby meet me out back
We’re gonna boogie
Oh, get down, turn around, go to town
Boot scootin’ boogieI said, get down, turn around, go to town
Boot scootin’ boogie
Oh, get down, turn around, go to town
Boot scootin’ boogie

Okie From Muskogee Lyrics

Merle Haggard & The Strangers

We don’t smoke marijuana in Muskogee;
We don’t take no trips on LSD
We don’t burn no draft cards down on Main Street;
We like livin’ right, and bein’ free.

I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all

We don’t make a party out of lovin’;
We like holdin’ hands and pitchin’ woo;
We don’t let our hair grow long and shaggy,
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do.

And I’m proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball.
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all.

Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear;
Beads and Roman sandals won’t be seen.
Football’s still the roughest thing on campus,
And the kids here still respect the college dean.

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.

Amarillo by Morning Lyrics

George Strait

Amarillo by mornin’
Up from San Antone
Everything that I got
Is just what I’ve got on

When that Sun is high
In that Texas sky
I’ll be buckin’ at the county fair
Amarillo by mornin’
Amarillo I’ll be there

They took my saddle in Houston
Broke my leg in Santa Fe
Lost my wife and a girlfriend
Somewhere along the way

But I’ll be lookin’ for eight
When they pull that gate
And I hope that
Judge ain’t blind
Amarillo by mornin’Amarillo’s on my mind

Amarillo by mornin’
Up from San Antone
Everything that I got
Is just what I’ve got on

I ain’t got a dime
But what I’ve got is mine
I ain’t rich
But Lord, I’m free

Amarillo by mornin’
Amarillo’s where I’ll be
Amarillo by mornin’
Amarillo’s where I’ll be
