Verse 1
 
 --------

[Bb]It comes from Mississippi and down in Alabam,
Creepin' like a fever, all across the land.
The people got to have it, they wanna hear some more.
Chorus
 
 -------

Its the [Eb]hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum,
[Bb]Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun.
[Eb]Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock.
[F]Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly [Bb]rock.
Verse 2
 
 --------

Some [Bb]say it came from Memphis, down in Tennessee,
Or it drifted in from Georgia about 1953.
Just as long as its greasy, as long as its fast,
As long as its pumpin' honey, its gonna last.
*REPEAT CHORUS*
[Bb]INSTRU[Eb]MENTAL[Bb] [Eb] [F] [Bb]
Verse 3
 
 --------

Way [Bb]back in old Kentucky where the bluegrass grows,
Through the Carolinas on them dirt red roads.
Burnin' like a fire runnin' wild in the woods,
*REPEAT CHORUS*
Verse 4
 
 --------

So when the [Bb]heat starts to risin' and you gotta blow some steam,
Take a ride down the river, you'll see just what I mean.
The juke joint's jumpin' when that cat goes on,
The whole place is shakin', there's a something goin' on.
*REPEAT CHORUS*
[F]Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly [Bb]rock.
[F]Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly [Bb]rock.
