WILLIE AND THE HAND JIVE- Eric Clapton

G
I know a cat named Way Out Willie

Got a cool little chick named Rockin' Millie
        C
He can walk and stroll and Suzy-Q
 G
Do the crazy hand jive too

Momma momma look at uncle Joe
Doin' the hand jive with sister Flo
Uncle gave sister a dime
Do the hand jive one more time

CHORUS:
       C          G          D                  G
Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive, do that crazy jive

Doctor, a lawyer and an Indian chief
They all dig that crazy beat
Way Out Willie give 'em all a treat
When he did that hand jive with his feet... CHORUS

Willie and Millie got married last fall
They had a little Willie Junior and that ain't all
The kid's got crazy and it's plain to see
He's doin' the hand jive on T.V. ... CHORUS

NOTE: The important thing to this song is the Bo Diddley rhythm.  I have
no idea how to explain it- listen to the record!
(from 461 Ocean Boulevard, 1974)

About the artist behind Willie And The Hand Jive:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
