Good Rockin' Tonight

Good Rocking Tonight

Escrita por Roy Brown

Interpretada por Elvis Presley, Scotty and Bill (SUN 210, 1954)

La influencia de Elvis convirtió a este tema original del Blues Shouter Roy Brown en pieza habitual del temprano repertorio rockandolero de Buddy, dejando para la posteridad una demo grabada a finales de 1956 junto a Jerry Allison en la casa de los Holly que, con la aportación de The Fireballs, se incluyó por primera vez en el LP "Giant" (1969). 

Well I heard the news

There's a good rocking tonight

Yeah I heard the news

There's a good rockin tonight

I wanna hold my baby as tight as I can

Well tonight she'll know I'm a mighty-mighty man

I heard the news

There's a good rocking tonight

 

I wanna meet you in a hurry behind the barn

Don't you be afraid you know I'll do you no harm

I want you to bring along my rockin' shoes

'Cause tonight I wanna rock away all your blues

I heard the news

There's a good rocking tonight

 

Well hey we're gonna rock, we're gonna rock

Hey hey let's rock

Come on and rock

We're gonna rock all our blues away

Well tonight she'll know I'm a mighty-mighty man

I heard the news

There's a good rocking tonight

 

Well, we're gonna rock, we're gonna rock 

Hey, let's rock 

C'mon and rock rock rock rock

We're gonna rock all our blues away
