Jack Scott

 

Jack Scott was born on a Friday night

Saturday was bitter come the morning light

Rockin’ and a rollin’ mama burst a stitch

Trucks tearing off the Ambassador bridge

Louis Prima on about Sing Sing Sing

Jack runnin’ wild Got You Under My Skin

 

Jack Scott kicks Elvis ass

Jack Scott never 2nd class

Jack Scott Jack Scott Jack Scott

 

Detroit City building cars

Mama gave her little son his first guitar

All the girls would scream shout

When Jack would belt Hank Williams out

Wasn’t long before a million records sold

My True Love was certified gold

 

Jack Scott kicks Elvis ass

Jack Scott never smooth as glass

Jack Scott Jack Scott Jack Scott

 

Never Burning Bridges or dyin’ in a crash

Or marrying his cousin or stealing someone’s cash

Taking his life or preaching about the lord

Jack just wrote his songs the lyrics and chords

Like The Way I Walk was a darker side

Touch Jack Scott and he’ll go hog wild

 

Jack Scott kicks Elvis ass

Jack Scott never Sunday mass

Jack Scott Jack Scott Jack Scott

 

Jack’s the greatest singer you might not know

Just a couple weeks ago he closed the show

Giovanni Scafone was his given name

Now who would want a greaseball to earn such fame

He’s a rockabilly legend left to the fates

Got the party rockin’ at the pearly gates

 

Jack Scott kicks Elvis ass

Jack Scott never probably smoked some grass
