CHORUS:  [on recorded version, the first chorus is a capella]

D             C       G    D                    C                 A

Oh, you gonna take me home tonight.  Oh, down beside that red firelight.

D             G

Oh, you gonna let it all hang out.

             D                   A                 D

Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin' world go 'round.


Hey!      [much guitar work over D]



I was just a skinny lad, never knew no good from bad.


But I knew life before I left my nursery.

       D                               G

Left alone with big fat Fanny, She was such a naughty nanny.

         D                A              D

Heap big woman you made a bad boy out of me.  Hey, hey!


I've been singing with my band across the wire, across the land.

I seen every blue eyed floozy on the way.

But their beauty and their style went kind of smooth after a while.

Take me to them dirty ladies every time.


CHORUS:  [last line 2x]  [spken] Hey, listen here!


Now, I got mortgages and homes.  I got stiffness in the bones.

Ain't no beauty queens in this locality.

Oh, but I still get my pleasure, still got my greatest treasure,

Heap big woman, you done made a big man out of me.  Now, get this:


CHORUS:  [last line 2x]


[n.c. & spoken]

Get on your bikes and ride!  [noodle over D chord and out]
