Play The Finger Lickin’ Guitar Pickin’ Man Lyrics
By Neil Dover

I was gettin’ down in a little town just north of New Orleans
When the bar keep walked up to the stage and stopped in front of me
He said son I may not look like much but I know a couple of things
And if you wanna play in this here place you gotta bend them guitar strings

We were takin’ a break on the side of the stage on a five set Friday night
Well I started at eight and it was gettin’ late and my throat was a gettin’ tight
When this guy walked up with an old Les Paul and he asked if he could play
Well I said son can you get it done this is what he had to say
I can stand ’em up and I can sit ’em down, I can play it tough and I can rock this town
Let me tell you right now what I am
I’m a finger lickin’ guitar pickin’ man

Well he’s been with me from that day on
He’s the reason why I wrote this song
When I’m tired and I can’t sing
I let him play that six string
And he says I can stand ’em up and I can sit ’em down
I can play it tuff and I can rock this town
Let me tell you right now what I am
I’m a finger lickin’ guitar pickin’ wild red rippin’
Juke box swampin’ G string popping’ man
Mmm that’s what I am

Git it boys

Awl that’s tuff
