There it stands in the corner with the barrel so straight I looked out the winder and over the gate The big fat rabbits are jumpin' in the grass Wait 'till they hear my old shotgun blast Shotgun boogie, I done saw your track Look out Mr. Rabbit when I cock my hammer back Well, over on the ridge is a scaly bark Hickory nuts so big you can see'em in the dark The big fat squirrels, they scratch and they fight I'll be on that ridge before daylight With a shotgun boogie, all I need is one shot Look out bushy-tails, tonight you'll be in the pot Well, I met a pretty gal, she was tall and thin I asked her what she had, she said a Fox four-ten I looked her up and down, said boy this is love So we headed for the brush to shoot a big fat dove Shotgun boogie, boy the feathers flew Look out Mr. Dove when she draws a bead on you I sat down on a log, took her on my lap She said wait a minute bud, you got to see my pap He's gotta sixteen gauge choked down like a rifle He don't like a man that's gonna trifle Shotgun boogie, draws a bead so fine Look out big boy, he's loaded all the time Well, I called on her pap like a gentleman oughter He said no brush hunter's gonna get my daughter He cocked back the hammer right on the spot When the gun went off I outrun the shot Shotgun boogie, I wanted weddin' bells I'll be back little gal, when your pappy runs out of shells
