Lyrics

vs1
round these parts, there's a legend lived
a kid named Bob, here's what he did
he'd do a little dance he done all by himself
it drove them girls crazy, made their hearts melt 
 
vs2
with just a banjo riff and a bang box beat
a little sweat, and dust in the summer heat
the local crowd'd gather on a Sat'day night
to drink and dance and cuss and fight
 
and then, there'd come Bob...they called him Hitchy-Bob
 
vs3
he'd walk out from under that big magnolia tree
and stand by the bonfire, for all to see
slim and trim with a dancers flair 
he'd throw his arms straight up into the air
 
ch1
with a slow turn, he'd hitch himself down
pretend he held a girl, and slow turn back around
he'd pull her in tight, till there was no daylight
groove her counter clockwise, then back to the right
them girls would sway their hips and say
boys - that's the Hitchy-Bob Way
 
ch2
it's a slow turn, hitch yourself down
grab that girl and turn her around
pull her in tight 'till there's no daylight 
groove her counterclockwise, then back to the right

½ refrain2
that's the Hitchy-Bob Way
 
bridge
then all the fellas'd whoop and get into the act
grabbin' their girls like a fever attack
the liquor, the heat, the passions of youth
made it right horny-like to tell you the truth
some did it round and around
some tried it horizontal, down on the ground
 
ch3-claps
it's a slow turn, hitch yourself down
grab that girl and turn her around
pull her in tight 'till there's no daylight 
groove her counterclockwise, then back to the right
that's the Hitchy-Bob Way
yeah, that's the Hitchy-Bob Way
 
outro
so, thats the way the story ends
though every Sat'day night they do it again
folks love the Hitchy-Bob, it just feels right:
it's that counter-clockwise groove and back to the right
oh,oh, the Hitchy-Bob Way
oh,oh, the Hitchy-Bob Way
