Rockabilly Blues
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Growin' up in the south, we had plenty to choose
From the different kinds of music we could listen to
There was country, pop, rock and roll, soul, R&B, and blues
Put it all together and here's the news

CHORUS
(Yeah) We got the rockabilly blues way down in our shoes
Yeah, the rockabilly blues; got nothin' to lose
It's got the kind of rhythm we sure can use
There ain't nothin' about it make you wanta snooze
We got the rockabilly, baby, rockabilly blues

VERSE
Country make you want to cry tears in your beer
Rock and roll flat put you in another gear
R&B and soul let you try a little tenderness
Blues show you how to feel the back side of happiness

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
Now all of that might sound confusing
But we knew exactly what it meant
Hell, we're still havin' fun winning and losing
If you want to know why, baby, here's a hint

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

TAG
(Yeah) We got the rockabilly, baby, rockabilly blues
Uh huh, we got the rockabilly, baby, rockabilly blues

Long Song Description:
This is about the singer's love of rockabilly music and how it is, at least in a sense, an amalgamation of lots of other kinds of music (or they took from it; whichever). Anyway, this song really is just a celebration of rockabilly (and illustrated by a great rockabilly guitar player).
Story Behind the Song:
No back story. Just pure craft.
