In this lesson for the song Darktown Strutters ball, I wanted to show you how the words go with the music; so I've slowed down the playing so you can see and hear what is going on. Just take your time with the tune and I know that you will enjoy it.

Thank you.

Gal gonna get you, baby honey

Be ready 'bout half past eight

Now darling, don't be late

Wanna be there when the band start playing

Gonna dance out both of our shoes
