G
My Mama don’t like it, the way I comb my hair,
                                        D
Papa thinks I’m crazy, in the clothes I wear.
                 G                         C
They took all my records but I play it all day..
  G                    D                         G 
I am what I am and I’m gonna keep a rockin’ that way.

CHORUS:
      G
I’m a rockabilly rebel from head to toe.
                                    D
I gotta keep a-rockin’ everywhere I go.
          G                           C
Everybody join us, we’re good compan..y..
     G                   D                     G
be a real cool cat, be a rockabilly rebel like me.

    G         
The kids in the schoolhouse, they couldn’t wait too long,
                                                    D
When the school is over, they put their cat clothes on,
                    G                          C                    
You oughta hear the slap bass, swingin’ to the band..
       G                           D                      G
It's a real rockin’ rhythm that is sweepin’ all over this land.

CHORUS:
      G
I’m a rockabilly rebel from head to toe.
                                    D
I gotta keep a-rockin’ everywhere I go.
          G                           C
Everybody join us, we’re good compan..y..
     G                   D                     G
be a real cool cat, be a rockabilly rebel like me.

                                                       D
let it tramp through your body, from your head to your feet.
                G      G7                               C
Shakin’ in your shoes, boy, oh, don’t it make you feel, Wow!??
         G                      D                  G
Well, if you can’t dance, we’re not gonna show you how.
