On the way to work, the fog in my head cleared up enough for me to realize tht, of course, I meant Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. Still could use some help, though. Thanks.

This is a song that Max should know, if he doesn't already.

Wow! I can't believe I'm the first to answer this. I don't have the lyrics, but here goes from memory:

Well I don't know what you got
But it don't take a genius to see
That whatever you got
Babe, it's hot and it's melting me
When you move like that
And you groove like that
Honey, you could make a blind man see
Your love has shook me
And you bring out the boogie in me

All the women I've had
They were glad when my boogie got tired
They'd all sputter and scratch
Like a match that can't set on fire
When you dance like that
And you prance like that
You make me wanna climb down from my tree
You're my red hot mama
And you bring out the boogie in me

Let's go down to the beach
Where you can teach me a step or two
We can spend all our time
Drinking wine in a rented canoe
We can roll and romp
We can kick and stomp
We can shake this fruit down from your tree
You're my fine healthy woman
And you bring out the boogie in me

Oh can't you see
You love has shook me up
And you bring out the boogie in me.

Or something like that.
Paul.

Yeay!!! This is one of my favorite songs. I don't know the chords, but I do have the CD. Those are pretty much the same words on it.

I actually sang this a capella at the Mudcat gathering at Lonesome EJ's house when Bill and Allan traveled through on their Big Adventure. (I don't sing "You're a fine, healthy woman..." I sing, "You're my chocolate chip cookie and ..."

If you want to know the particulars on the CD, let me know and I'll go chase it down.

In the credit where credit is due department, it should be pointed out that "You Bring Out the Boogie in Me" was actually written by Michael Franks.

There is also a version on an out-of-print LP by Humphrey & the Dumprtrucks, a great band from Saskatoon.

Mike,

I have to search out Humphrey & the Dumptrucks based on the name alone. Thanks for the history. It always adds to the piece.

And to Paul S, especially, thanks for posting the lyrics.

Just a couple of variations to this great song - can't recall who I heard do these:

"Your fire has cooked me, mamma, you bring out (etc)"

Or - instead of "chocolate chip cookie" - "you're my chocolate cookie, mamma"

Or - "you're fine as you can be, you bring out (etc)"

Humphrey & the Dumptrucks were a wonderful band from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan that formed around 1967 and existed into the early-'80s. The original band was Gary (Humphrey) Walsh on banjo and dobro, Michael (Earnie) Taylor on guitar, Graeme Card on guitar and mandolin and Michael (Bear) Millar on bass.

Graeme left the group in the '70s and they carried on as a trio. At one point, Humphrey also left for a while and they played as the Dumptrucks with Bob Evans on banjo.

They became best known for "Cruel Tears," their country and western opera that played extended runs in many of Canada's legit theatres.

They made six LPs, none of which has ever come out on CD. "You Bring Out the Boogie in Me" was on their LP "Gopher Suite" with Michael Taylor singing the lead vocal.

Michael Taylor and Gary (Humphrey) Walsh are now half of a band in Stratford, Ontario called Me & My Uncle that carries on the Dumptrucks tradition. They released a a really nice CD a couple of years ago.

At the Folk Roots/Folk Branches website, you can go the links page and find the links to artists' websites. There's a link there to the Me & My Uncle site that has some Dumptruck info in the bios of Michael and Humph.

here are the actual lyrics as I hear them:

1. I don't know what you got, but it don't take a genius to see
That whatever you've got, it's hot and it's melting me.
When you move like that,
In your groove like that,
Makes me want to climb down from my tree.
You're a chocolate cookie, baby, and you bring out the boogie in me.

2. All the women I've had, they were glad when my boogie got tired.
They would sputter and scratch like a match that you can't set on fire.
When you prance like that,
In your pants like that,
Honey, you could make a blind man see.
You're love has shook me and you bring out the boogie in me.

3. Let's go down to the beach. You can teach me a step or two.
We can spend all our time drinking wine in a rented canoe.
We can kick and stomp.
We can roll and romp.
We can shake this fruit down from your tree.
You're fire has cooked me, baby. You bring out the boogie in me.
Your fire has cooked me. You bring out the boogie in me.
You're love has shook me up, and you bring out the boogie in me.
Baby, you're a chocolate cookie, and you bring out the boogie in me.
Babe, you take me back to nineteen and forty-three.

This is clearly a the folk processing the 17th-C lyric that started:

Whenas in silks my Celia goes,
Why then, methinks, how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.

We'd need somebody from the Cecil Sharp House to trace all the steps, but I'm sure it can be done.
