Johnny Cash – Luther Played The Boogie Woogie Lyrics

[Verse: 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 stomping beat
We played a blues song kinda slow and sweet
But the thing that knocked them off of their feet was
Ooh-wee
[Chorus: Johnny Cash]
When Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie woogie
Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie-woogie
Luther played the boogie
In the strangest kind of way
Play it strange!
Well, we did our best to entertain
Everywhere we’d go
We’d nearly wear our fingers off
To give the folks a show
Played jumping jive to make them get in the groove
We played sad songs, real slow and smooth
But the only thing that’d make them move was
Ooh-wee
[Chorus]
[Outro]
Now, didn’t Luther play the boogie strange?
