Song Description

A happy song with a great story-line with some good guitar-picking out of Nashville.

Story Behind the Song

I just wanted to write a Memphis song and tie it in with a down and out guitar player who made it big.

Broadjam Member Reviews

The song was nice and upbeat. The instrumentation and the recording was very good. Song was fun. I can bet you will land this on with a licensing gig if you haven't already. Great potential

Lyrics

I went down south to New Orleans,
I got in a fight over a cajun queen
I had to leave town to save my soul
wound up in Memphis with my back pack roll.

(bridge)#1
I'm playing my guitar in a late night dive, doing all I can to stay alive,
I'm playing my blues, I can do it well
got a one-room flat in a cheap motel
(instrumental break)

rock&roll booogie it's hard to beat,
I got those hip-hop cats comin' off the streets, they never heard a sound like mine before, I got em' 'jumpin&jivin' through the swinging doors.
(bridge)2

I'm playing my guitar like 'Johnny B. Goode' gettin' it on like Elvis would,
all the way down on Beale Street, I'm a hip-hop daddy that's hard to beat.

Cat Man boogie is a who I am,
playing my licks in a country band
all the 'cats' know me on Beale st, I'm playing my guitar to a Memphis beat.
(instrumental)

(repeat bridge #2
