DOWN AT THE TWIST AND SHOUT (Mary-Chapin Carpenter)
---------------------------------------------------
[Actually in A; capo at the 2nd fret]

C                      C
Saturday night and the moon is out
        G                   G
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
       D                      D
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
        G                     G
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
C                      C    -    D
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
       G                      G
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
      D                      D                 G   G
Wanna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

       D                           D
Well I never have wandered down to New Orleans
G                         G
Never have drifted down a bayou stream
      D                       D
But I heard that music on the radio
      G                    G
And I swore some day I was gonna go
     Em              Em
Down Highway 10 past Lafayette
   A7                A7
To Baton Rouge and I won't forget
   D                    D
To send you a card with my regrets
           D                      G
'Cause I'm never gonna come back home

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

They got an alligator stew and a crawfish pie
A gulf storm blowing into town tonight
Living on the delta's quite a show
They got hurricane parties every time it blows
But here up north it's a cold, cold rain
And there ain't no cure for my blues today
Except when the paper says Beausoleil
Is a-coming into town, baby let's go down

It's Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring your sister too
They got lots of music and lots of room
When they play you a waltz from a-1910
You're gonna feel a little bit young again
Well you learned to dance with your rock and roll
You learned to swing with a do-si-do
But you learn to love at the fais-do-do
When you hear a little Jolie Blon

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight
