Johnny Otis: The New Johnny Otis Show

Charlie Gillett, Record Mirror, 12 November 1969

"I'm gonna lay right here on this wall,
And drink this beer,
And watch her walk.
You heard me call a while ago,
And I know you know like I know:
You can take foxes out of the country,
But…"
"What"
"…You can't get the country out of foxes,
Walk on Baby,
Baby, baby, walk on."
"What's she shakin' like that for?"
"Gotta be jelly, jello shakes that way…"

(Words from 'Country Girl', written by Johnny Otis and Delmer Evans, sung by "Mighty Mouth" Evans and Johnny Otis, featuring Shuggie Otis on guitar)
