Letra de Alabama Wild Man
Now my daddy was a hard shelled Alabama preacher My mama was a dedicated a Sunday School teacher My brother went a college and got a PHD Daddy said the only dud in the family was me He said boy you ain't never gonna amount to a thing All you do is sit around with that silly looking guitar and sing You hang around them joke joints most of your time Making music like some wild man done lost his mind Going uh hook it now what's that s'posed to mean boy And sock it to me you're just a wild man boy Well one day my daddy told me boy I've had enough Now you can pack up that guitar and you can just pack up your stuff So I left with my guitar and organized me a band Called myself the Alabama Wild Man Well I worked in every joint from New York City to Gulf Singing songs for pennies never making enough Many nights I lived on coffee and cold sardines sody crackers and pork and beans But friends I finally went to Music City USA Said I'm the Alabama Wild Man folks I'm here to stay Took my guitar and showed 'em what I's talkin' about So we made a little record and we put it out With me going uh hook it hook it boy hook it again Sock it to that guitar Well now I'm driving cadillacs a city block long And the Alabama Wild Man can do no wrong Cause I'm selling them records I'm working those shows And people love me everywhere I go But friends a funny thing happened bout a week or so back I worked a show in my hometown and the place was packed And I guess who was sittin' out on a front row seat Was my daddy grinnin' up at me and pattin' his feet Sayin' sock it to your daddy's wild man Hook it son hook it play that guitar boy show 'em Yeah that's my boy up there alright taught him everything he knows Bought him his guitar hook it son sock it to me
