"Twistin' Jack" by Miss Behavin' –
My (D)daddy didn't dance, not even a lick
so they called (G) him Twistin'(D) Jack.
He always sat face to the bar
all the (A)dancers got was back.
(D)His boots were made of cement
and his jeans (G) were made of (D) stone
(G) rumor goes that he did once (D) dance
but then (A) he was (D) alone
(D) Twistin Jack Twistin Jack
TwistinÂ' down the (G) road in his old (D) Cadillac
Twistin' the top off a (F#) long neck (B7) beer
but (D) you won't see Jack (A) dancing (D)here
Now (D) Twistin' Jack was a handsome man
and he caught the (G) eye of all the (D) girls
they'd buy him drinks and beg and plead
"please (A) Jack, just one little twirl"
(D) but his feet were fast
(G) glued to the (D) ground
(G) wouldn't change his (D) tune
(A) his resolve was sound
(D) A rose by any other name may (F#) smell as (B7) sweet
but (D)Twistin Jack won't (A) move his (D) feet.
(D)TwistinÂ' Jack TwistinÂ' Jack
they keep twisting his (G) arm but he just won't (D) crack
he might twist a smile or hed(F#) might twist a (B7) sneer
but (D) you won't see Jack (A) dancing (D) here
One night a stranger come into the joint
as Jack was ( G) filling up on (D) bourbon
he grabbed a stool and sat right down
and Jack, (A) he began disturbing
(D)"well, there's an ole' boy here
(G) who dances like the devil or so I have been (D) told
and with a name like TwistinÂ'(A) Jack he must be something to (D) behold"
He said "I sure would like to see that fella do a (F#) little dance or (B7) two"
(D)Twistin' Jack looked him (A) right in the eye and said "yeah, me (D) too"
