Fire
Backwoods


        Someone spilled blood many years ago

        Someone spilled blood but do you know

        That from the backwoods

        Where the Chuck Berrys grow

        Come your long tall

        Daddies of rock and roll



        Take me to your backwoods now

        Take me to your backwoods now



        Spinnin’ down from the clouds

        Like a tornado

        Spinnin’ out of control

        Like a psychedelic soul

        With a rhythm hittin’ harder

        Than Larry Holmes

        Come your long tall

        Daddies of rock and roll



        Mr. Uplift Mofo – my man Bo Diddley

        Hit sippin’ a bottle of nickel ripple

        Play the lickity split finger lickin’ licks

        For all you wicked city slick chicks

        And all you nitty gritty hicks

        We’ll make your nipples ripple

        Make you wanna dip your dipple

        Make you wanna soak your hickory stick

        That’s right

        Because my man has a grip on it

        And I do mean on it

        Which brings to mind

        A very sinister minister kind of guy

        A man named Little Richard

        Who was born to make them bitches stir

        That’s right he’ll make the sweet substance drip

        From the middle of your hillbilly lips

        And like the farmer milks his cow

        The Howlin’ Wolf will howl

        And since times does allow

        You all can

        Take me to your backwoods now



        Take me to your backwoods now

        Take me to your backwoods now

        Take me to your backwoods now

        Take me to your backwoods now

        Take me to your backwoods

        Give no love until you’re wed

        Live not life until you’re dead

        The good book says we must suppress

        The good book says we must confess

        But who cares what the good book says

        ‘Cause now she’s taking off her dress

        Injected with the seed of emaculation

True Men Don't Kill Coyotes


        Well, I'm gonna ride a sabertooth horse
