Slim Dusty lyrics : "MANGROVE BOOGIE KINGS"

They came from Mangrove Mountain where the Hawkesbury waters flowed
They had their own particular kind of rock n roll
Up and down the eastern seaboard a trail of broken strings

Told the tale of these wild ones the Mangrove Boogie Kings

Their mountain music rhythm was big and it was proud

Like their cars and like their clothes they were just as loud
When Chris Piper did his emu strut and he gave his rebel scream
Oh the crowds all loved the music of the Mangrove Boogie Kings


They'd go back to Mangrove Mountain to revive their repertoire
And the river folks still talk about the sounds of their guitars

Then they'd come back and face the world prepared for anything
Oh they were loud they were proud the Mangrove Boogie Kings
[Yeah]


[Instrumental]


They mingled Chubby Checker & Carl Perkins to their style
Hey they pushed country music down a fiery country mile
They spread their music overland from Bourke to Alice Springs

And the outback knew the river sounds of the Mangrove Boogie Kings

Hey they'd go back to the Mountain to revive their repertoire

And the river folks still talk about the sounds of their guitars
Then they'd come back and face the world prepared for anything
Oh they were loud they were proud the Mangrove Boogie Kings
