      IV. LONG DISTANCE BOOGIE

      Is everybody feelin' good? You makin' us feel good, too!
      Now, early this morning I got on that long distance telephone
      and I called my mama.
      I said, "Mama, this is your boy, and I'm way down here in
      New Orleans, Louisiana."
      And she said, "That's all right, boy."
      And she turned to my papa and she said,
      "Papa, our boy's way down there in New Orleans.
      We cannot let him stay out all night long."
      She did!
      Long about that time, I heard my papa lean toward my mama.
      I heard papa tell mama, "Let that boy boogie-woogie."
      He said, "It's in him and it's got to come out."

      So I went downtown.
      There's a lot of people there.
      They was-a really havin' a ball.
      And I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.
      Yes, I felt so good.

      Boogie, children!

      Boogie, children!

Nasty Dogs And Funky Kings
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Well, I knocked down on your door, baby,
      to see if you were at home.
      Your shade was down, there wasn't even a sound
      but something told me you weren't alone.
      What in the world can a nasty dog do
      but try to get next to you?

      Don't laugh 'cause it ain't funny.
      Look how it happened to me.
      It could happen to you, you could be a fool too
      and it'd leave you in misery.
      I guess there's nothin' more funky king can do
      but to try to get next to you.

      Mm, well.

      I done ran into my baby
      and fin'lly found my old blue jean.
      Well, I could tell that they was mine
      from the oil and the gasoline.

      If I ever get back my blue jean,
      Lord, how happy could one man be.
      If I ever get back my blue jean,
      Lord, how happy could one man be.
      'Cause if I get back those blue jean
      you know, my baby be bringin' 'em home to me.

Balinese
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Deep in the South of Texas
      not so long ago,
      there on a crowded island
      in the Gulf of Mexico

      it didn't take too much money,
      man, but it sure was nice.
      You could dance all night if you felt all right,
      drinking whiskey and throwing dice.

      And everybody knows
      it was hard to leave.
      And everybody knows
      it was down at the Balinese.

      Yeah, I remember Ruby,
      she always dressed in red
      wearing skintight pants, Lord, and how she could dance
      with a rag wrapped around her head.

      And everybody knows
      it was hard to leave.
      And everybody knows
      it was down at the Balinese.

      And everybody knows
      it was hard to leave.
      And everybody knows
      it was down at the Balinese,
      it was down at the Balinese,
      it was down at the Balinese.

Mexican Blackbird
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      If you're down in Acuna and you ain't up to being alone
      don't spend all your money on just any honey that's grown.
      Go find the Mexican blackbird and send all your troubles back home.

      They all call her her "puta" 'cause no one really knows her name.
      She works the cantina, dancin' and a-lovin's her trade.
      Her mama was Mez'can and her daddy was the ace of spades.

      Oh, let's drive that old Chrysler down to Mexico, boy.
      Said, keep your hands on the wheel there.
      Oh, it sure is fine, ain't it?
      Now, ya got it! Hand me another one of them brews from back there.
      Oh, this is gonna be so good.

      Mm, she's hot as a pepper but smooth as a Mexican brew.
      So head for the border and put in an order or two.
      The wings of the blackbird will spread like an eagle for you.

      Oh, one more time,
      can you roll me another Bull Durham, please?
      Can't you do it with one hand, boy?

Heard In On The X
(Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill & Frank Beard)
      Do you remember
      back in nineteen sixty-six?
      Country Jesus, hillbilly blues,
      that's where I learned my licks.
      Oh, from coast to coast and line to line
      in every county there,
      I'm talkin' 'botu that outlaw X
      is cuttin' through the air.

      Anywhere, y'all,
      everywhere, y'all,
      I heard it, I heard it,
      I heard it on the X.

      We can all thank Doctor B
      who stepped across the line.
      With lots of watts he took control,
      the first one of its kind.
      So listen to your radio
      most each and every night
      'cause if you don't I'm sure you won't
      get to feeling right.

      Anywhere, y'all,
      everywhere, y'all,
      I heard it, I heard it,
      I heard it on the X.

Tush
(Frank Beard, Bill Gibbons & Dusty Hill)
      I been up, I been down.
      Take my word, my way around.
      I ain't askin' for much.
      I said, Lord, take me downtown,
      I'm just lookin' for some tush.

      I been bad, I been good,
      Dallas, Texas, Hollywood.
      I ain't askin' for much.
      I said, Lord, take me downtown,
      I'm just lookin' for some tush.

      el.g. solo

      Take me back way back home,
      not by myself, not alone.
      I ain't askin' for much.
      I said, Lord, take me downtown,
      I'm just lookin' for some tush.

      el.g. solo
