Tommy Spurlin - Hang Loose chords

Friends, last evening I was playing with my guitar and while I played I was listening to Tommy Spurlin's "Hang Loose". I tried to play the song on my guitar and see... now I know the chords. I think tabs and chords of this song are really rare, so I like to post them here:


(E) Hang loose I gotta rock, hang loose I gotta roll

Hang loose I got to rock just to satisfy my (A) soul

Hang loose I gotta (B7) rock, hang loose I gotta (E) roll

Verse 1:
Well I learned to rock down on the farm
Known how to roll ever since I was born
No trouble for me 'cause I'm a cool cat
I hit the bottle everytime I go to bed

(E)Hey go I gotta rock, don't you know I gotta roll

Hang loose I got to go just to satisfy my (A) soul

Hang loose I gotta (B7) rock, Hang loose I gotta (E) roll

Verse 2:
Well my favorite pass-time
Is to get myself a nickel or a dime
Slip it in the jukebox machine
Grab me a kitten in tight blue jeans

Guitar solo - then play the whole thing again

At the beginning you have to play E but only play the first three strings to get a "rusty" sound. I don't really know what Jimmy Slade, the lead guitarrist, plays in his solo, but I'd like to find it out and then I'll post it. Enjoy!

You have one of the lines wrong. It should be "I hit the ball every time I go to bat" not "I hit the bottle every time I go to bed"! I am Tommy Spurlin's neice and so know this is the way it should be!
