Like a boat on a river this bus is floating down this old highway Looking out the window I think about how I got here today Anyone who's anywhere had some help getting there its true And one of the reasons why I get to do the things I do
I met this angel With callused hands Who led this boy to his band Under his wing I learned to fly On these six strings through this life You can hear them in my playing Although he's gone And I owe him so much more than just this song
Like a leaf that had fallen I was drifting down the stream Mr. Guitar came into my life and let me live this dream His old Gretch still speaking still speaking its teaching all of us a ton He was my friend and my hero all wrapped up in one
I met this angel With callused hands Who lead this naive boy into his band Under his wing I learned to fly On his six strings into the night I can still hear him playing although he's gone And I owe him so much more than just this song
Every face we see from we every stage we roll With every note we play even though there gone They live on They live on

Terra from MoundsvilleI too have fond memories of Hank He and dad played those Gretchs way into the night at my house I can still hear the old familiar" picking"
Dave from Red Oak, IaI hear the lyrics and Steve Wariner picking and I immediately think of Chet Atkins and all the others who personally help me when I was learning to play guitar. It's a greater song than anyone realizes at this point in time.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
