From: Dirt Bird 

This is the last song on 5 Man Acoustical Jam, and just shows you
what a good tune you can make with completely nil technical
difficulty.
  Tommy tunes normally, and Frank plays slide with open E (EBEG#BE)
tuning. Brian's bass line is VERY repetitive, but utterly essential.
  The final (That's all folks) section I have transcribed with Tommy
playing chords, and Frank playing lead, but since it's quite tricky
to play the lead with a slide on your finger, Tommy could well be
doing it (and I'm imagining the chords). Decide for yourselves.
  I apologize for any confusion Tommy's part may cause-I have
written some bars as chords with the rhythnm shown, and others with
full tablature, and others still with both. I know it's very
unconventional, but it's both lazy and complete , giving both the
notes and the rhythm

Lyrics:

(Spoken) Aw take it away Frankie baby!



I'm on a ride on out into the sun
and I won't be back til the mornin' come  <'comes' 2nd time>
I'm gettin down fo' boogie
I'm not alone

I said a come on, come on, gather round
'cause we're all gonna party down
I'm gettin down fo' boogie
I'm not alone   Oh



Mr Skeoch





I'm gettin' down fo' boogie
Down fo' boogie
I'm gettin' down fo' boogie
I'm not alone, yes I do
I'm gettin' down fo' boogie
I'm not alone, tell me how 'bout you?
I'm gettin down fo' boogie
I'm not alone
Aw'haw!

(Spoken) ababidaba..... That's all folksss'
