Merle Travis

Merle Robert Travis (November 29, 1917 – October 20, 1983) was an American country and Western singer, songwriter, and musician born in Rosewood, Kentucky. His lyrics often discussed the life and exploitation of coal miners. Among his many well-known songs are "Sixteen Tons", "Re-Enlistment Blues" and "Dark as a Dungeon". However, it is his masterful guitar playing and his interpretations of the rich musical traditions of his native Muhlenberg County, Kentucky for which he is best known today. "Travis picking", a syncopated style of finger picking, is named after him. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970 and elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1977. more »

Bout twelve o'clock , gonna close the door
Can't nobody come, or nobody go

Got a boogie woogie feeling
Had it all night long
When I get that feeling
My momma won't let me come home

Well I got a little girl, with great big legs
Walks like she's walking on soft boiled eggs

Got a boogie woogie feeling
Had it all night long
When I get that feeling
My momma won't let me come home

There's two kind of people I just can't stand
A lying woman, and a sneaking man

Got a boogie woogie feeling
Had it all night long
When I get that feeling
My momma won't let me come home

Now what did the rat say to the mouse
I wanna see you down at my house

Got a boogie woogie feeling
Had it all night long
When I get that feeling
My momma won't let me come home

Six times six is thirty six
Ain't a gonna hit but six more licks

Got a boogie woogie feeling
Had it all night long
When I get that feeling
My momma can't keep me home

Got a boogie woogie feeling
And momma can't keep me home
