The Judds – Turn It Loose Lyrics

Some call it country with a little bit of rhythm and blues
And when the boys start rockin’
There’s a beat that you just can’t lose
Where it’s gonna take us nobody knows
It sure feels good to the body and soul

[Chorus]
I love the slide of a steel guitar
I love the moan of an old blues harp
I love the shake of a tamborine
I love the bass when it’s low and mean
So put on your shoutin’ shoes
And turn it loose
Turn it loose

You feel like dancin’ and you just can’t stay in your seat
Your knees start knockin’ and you can’t help stompin’ your feet
Before you even know it you’ll be singin’ along
Makes me wanna stay here all night long

[Repeat Chorus]

Turn it loose
Everybody put on your shoutin’ shoes and turn it loose
Grab your shoutin’ shoes and turn it loose
