Conway Twitty – Boogie Grass Band Lyrics

There’s a new kind of music going ’round
It’s known as the Boogey Grass sound
So grab your partner and swing her around
And dance to the Boogey Grass sound.

I love to hear Bill sing about Kentucky
And the Almond brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man”
We put the music all together
So dance to the Boogey Grass Band.

Well, my daddy plays the banjo and saws a fiddle too
He taught me how to sing and play for you
I’ve got Blue Grass in my soul and rhythm in my feet
So dance to the Boogey Grass beat.

I love to hear Bill sing about Kentucky
And the Almond brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man”
We put the music all together
So dance to the Boogey Grass Band.

I love to hear Bill sing about Kentucky
And the Almond brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man”
We put the music all together
So dance to the Boogey Grass Band.

Yo tay eo lay eee…
