Tennessee Wigwalk

Tennessee Wigwalk
(Words and music by N. Gimbel and L. Coleman)

I'm a bow-legg'd chicken, I'm a knock-knee'd hen
Never been so happy since I don't know when
I walk with a wiggle and giggle and a squawk
Doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.

To a tune on a fiddle on a hardwood floor
Tho' I'm broke and I'm weary and my back is sore
I walk with a wiggle and giggle and a squawk
Doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.

Put your toes together; your knees apart
Bend you back; get ready to start
Flap your elbows just for luck
Then you wiggle and you waddle like a baby duck.

Dance with me honey; tap your toes and glide
And we'll always be together; side by side
Walk with wiggle and a giggle and a squawk
Doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.

Walk with a wiggle; wiggle with a walk
And you're doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.
Doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.
Doin' the Tennessee Wigwalk.

Recorded by Bonnie Lou
