Red Foley – Birmingham Bounce Lyrics

[Verse 1]
In the heart of dixie down in Alabam
There’s a place we love called Birmingham
Everybody starts a-rockin’ and a-shufflin’ their feet
When a drum starts playin’ that solid beat
Now everybody’s dancin’ and jumpin’ too
When the music starts a-rockin’, nobody’s blue
A funny little rhythm with a solid sound
A boogie and a jumper called the Birmingham Bounce
[Verse 2]
Now some like a horn with a valve in the middle
And some like the beat of a big bare spiddle
If you’re a-dancin’ in the moonlight or a-dancin’ in the dark
We all like to dance to an old french harp
Now everybody’s dancin’ and a-jumpin’ too
When the music starts a-rockin’, nobody’s blue
A funny little rhythm with a solid sound
A boogie and a jumper called the Birmingham Bounce
[Verse 3]
If you like your music going eight to the bar
I know a way to make it best before
If the beat gets you movin’ and you need a good start
Let’s everybody dance to a steel guitar
Now everybody’s dancin’ and jumpin’ too
When the music starts a-rockin’, nobody’s blue
A funny little rhythm with a solid sound
A boogie and a jumper called the Birmingham Bounce
[Verse 4]
Now whether it’s hot or fine or sweet
If it’s down in dixie, brother, it’s got that beat
We don’t have the moon or even the star
But here’s that guitar going eight to the bar
Now everybody’s dancin’ and jumpin’ too
When the music starts a-rockin’, nobody’s blue
A funny little rhythm with a solid sound
A boogie and a jumper called the Birmingham Bounce
[Verse 5]
When you come down south and you want a good time
Just come to a dance when you’re feelin’ fine
Now that’s all it takes to spend a happy time
Let’s all dance together and have a wonderful time!
Now everybody’s dancin’ and jumpin’ too
When the music starts a-rockin’, nobody’s blue
A funny little rhythm with a solid sound
A boogie and a jumper called the Birmingham Bounce
