Shake It? Of Course We Will!

We love this song! Only Stevie Ray Vaughan could incorporate the blues with such a fun 70’s funk sound and have everybody dancing in their seats.

If you happened to be in Austin, Texas in 1980 you would have been lucky enough to see Stevie Ray Vaughan performing ‘Shake For Me’ with his band Double Trouble for live album In the Beginning.

+ Shake For Me Lyrics +

Well that sure look good darlin’
Drummin’ our thang to me
Yes that sure look good darlin’
Drummin’ our thang to me
I’ve got a cool shakin’ baby
Shake like a wildwood tree

You went away baby
You got back a little too late
You went away baby
You got back a little too late
I’ve got a cool shakin’ baby
Shake like jello on a plate

When my baby walks
You know she’s fightin’ below
Yeah when my baby walks
You know she’s fightin’ below
Yes and when she stops
(the) Place, it shakes like jello

Well now shake little baby
Shake it for me
Yeah now shake little baby
Shake it for me
Yeah now shake a little baby
Shake like a wildwood tree

Now let it shake
Now let it shake
Now let it shake
Now let it shake
Let it shake a little baby
Shake like a wildwood tree
