   Words and Music by Bobby Bare
C                             F
Gather 'round, cats, and I'll tell you a story
      G7                            C
About how to become an All American Boy
C                    F
Buy you a gittar and put it in tune
G7                            C
You'll be rockin' and rollin' soon
F
Impressin' the girls,
             G7                 C
Pickin' hot licks, and all that jazz

C                        F
I-I bought me a gittar a year ago
        G7                      C
Learned how to play in a day or so
C                          F
And all around town it was well understood
     G7                                    C
That I was knockin' 'em out like Johnny B. Goode
F                  G7             C
Hot licks, showin' off, ah number one

C              
Well, I 'd practice all day
    F
And up into the night
G7                          C
My papa's hair was turnin' white
C                     F
'Cause he didn't like rock'n'roll
G7           
He said, you can stay, boy
            C
But that's gotta go
F
He's a square
   G7                    C
He just didn't dig me at all

C                    F
So I took my gittar, picks and all
         G7                     C
And bid farewell to my poor ole pa
C                              F
And I split for Memphis where they say all
      G7                        C
Them swingin' cats are havin' a ball
F              G7
Sessions, hot licks and all
         C
They dig me

C
I was rockin' and boppin'
          F
And I's a gettin' the breaks
     G7                               C
The girls all said that I had what it takes
C                      F
When up stepped a man with a big cigar
   G7
He said "come here cat
                      C
I'm gonnna make you a star
F
I'll put you on Bandstand
G7
Buy ya a Cadillac
C
Sign here, kid

C                     F
I signed my name and became a star
G7                     C
Havin' a ball with my gittar
C                   F
Driving a big long Cadillac
    G7                        C
And fightin' the girls off ma back
F
They just kept a'comin'
G7              C
Screamin', yeah-they like it

C
So I'd pick my gittar
F
With a great big grin
    G7                      C
And the money just kept on pourin' in
                    F
But then one day my Uncle Sam
F
He said (sound of 3 footsteps)
F
Here I am
F
Uncle Sam needs you, boy
      C
I'm-a gonna cut your hair
C
Ah-Take this rifle, kid
C
Gimme that gittar, yeah
