Club Nitty Gritty
Chuck Berry Lyrics

Well, down in Tennessee, close to Mississippi
'Bout a mile out of Toulouse, on the way to Memphis
There's a road turning south that's rather rocky and tricky
But it dead-ends right up to the Club Nitty-Gritty

They do the Mess Around
The Watusi
The Hully Gully
The Mashed Potato
And oh-oh they started Twisting
They did the Shimmy
Ah! They were Jerking

Ironic how Chuck Berry re-cut his old songs for stereo for the Golden Hits LP but the only new song from his for the LP was only cut in mono.


Always dug this then new song when it was included on a LP the recuts Chuck did for Mercury Records.

Sweet song!! This would have been a great song for Ike and Tina to do;)

Marcelo Gobello

The riff inspired Bill Wyman for Jumpin Jack Flash

Sam Harrison

I can smell cigarettes and stale beer hearing this song, i dunno why
