Johnny Cash

"Get Rhythm"

[Chorus 1]
[Martin Delray:]
Hey, get rhythm, when you get the blues
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues
Get a rock 'n roll feeling in your bones
Put taps on your toes and get goin'
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

[Verse 1]
[Martin Delray:]
A little shoeshine boy never gets low down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin' low at the peoples' feet
On the windy corner of a dirty street
I asked him while he shined my shoes
How'd he keep from gettin' the blues
He grinned as he raised his little head
Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

[Chorus 2]
Martin Delray & Johnny Cash:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
C'mon get rhythm, when you get the blues
[Martin:]
A jumpin' rhythm makes you feel so fine
It'll shake all the troubles from your worried mind
[Martin & Johnny:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

[Verse 2]
[Johnny Cash:]
Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy
And I thought I was gonna jump with joy
Slapped on the shoe polish left and right
He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away
I said you're a mighty little boy to be a'workin' that way
He said I like it with a big wide grin
He kept on a'poppin' and he said again

[Chorus 3]
[Martin & Johnny:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
C'mon, get rhythm, when you get the blues
[Martin:]
It only cost a dime, just a nickel a shoe
It does a million dollars worth of good for you
[Martin & Johnny:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

[Chorus 1]
[Martin & Johnny:]
Get rhythm
[Martin:]
When you get the blues
[Martin & Johnny:]
C'mon, get rhythm
[Martin:]
When you get the blues
Get a rock 'n roll feeling in your bones
Put taps on your toes and get goin'
[Martin & Johnny:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

[Tag]
[Johnny:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
[Martin:]
Get rhythm, when you get the blues
Gotta get rhythm
[Johnny:]
Get rhythm
[Martin:]
When you get the blues
[Johnny:]
Get rhythm
