They Say I'm Different lyrics 

They say I’m different cause I’m a piece of sugar cane
Sweet to the core that’s why I got rhythm
My great grandma didn’t like the foxtrot
Nah, instead she’d spit her snuff and boogie to Elmore James

They say I’m different cause I eat chitlins
I can’t help it I was born & raised on’em, that’s right
Every mornin’ I’d have to slop the hogs
And they’d be gettin’ off humpin’ to John Lee Hooker

They say I’m different cause I’m a piece of sugar cane
And when I kick my legs, I got rhythm
My great grandpa was a blues lover
He’d be rockin’ his moonshine to B.B. King and Jimmy Reed, rock on now…

And that’s why they say I’m different
And that’s why they say I’m strange

I’m talkin bout Big Momma Thornton
Lightning Hopkins
Howling Wolf
Albert King
Chuck Berry (x3)
When I was sweet sixteen

And that’s why they say I’m different
And that’s why you think I’m strange

I’m talkin bout T-Bone Walker
(I get my) Muddy Waters
Leadbelly
Sonny Terry
Brownie Mcghee
Son House and Freddie King

Bessie Smith (x2)
Oh Hey
Bo Diddley have you heard

That’s why they say I’m different
That’s why they say I’m strange
That’s why they say I’m funky
Little Richard wow you sure showed ‘em you sure could sing
Alright alright

Robert Johnson (X3)
He played the blues for me

That’s why
And that’s why
And that’s why they say I’m different…

That’s why
And that’s why
And that’s why they say I’m strange…

That’s why
And that’s why
And that’s why they say I’m funky…
