RATTLE SHAKIN' DADDY
(Pingatore - Lytle)
JODIMARS (CAPITOL F3512, 1956)

Well, I'm a rattle shakin' daddy
I come from Tennessee (yeah)
Well, I'm a rattle shakin' daddy
I rattle down in Tennessee (yeah)
If you hear me rattle
You better rattle along with me-ee, oh yeah

Well, I rattle in the East
I rattle in the West
I try to rattle my doggone best
'Cause, I'm a rattle shakin' daddy from Tennessee
Now, if you hear me rattle
You better rattle along with me-ee, oh yeah

Well, you rattle over here
You rattle over there
Keep on dancing like a big fat bear
'Cause, I'm a rattle shakin' daddy from Tennessee
Now, if you hear me rattle
You better rattle along with me-ee, oh yeah

Well, I rattle in the North
I rattle in the South
I rattle so hard till I make 'em shout
He's a rattle shakin' daddy from Tennessee
Well, if you hear me rattle
You better rattle along with me-ee, oh yeah

They rattle over here
They rattle over there
They keep on dancing like a big fat bear
'Cause, I'm a rattle shakin' daddy from Tennessee
Now, if you hear me rattle
You better rattle along with me-ee, oh yeah

Although The Jodimars claim to have written this song themselves,
I suggest you also listen to Hawkshaw Hawkins' song Rattlesnakin' Daddy from 1951, five years earlier. You might be surprised.
