Shimmy Like My Sister Kate

C Williams and A Piron

4:4 Key:G

Well [C6]I may be [Gdim]late but I'll be [G6]up-to-[E7]date
When I can [A9]shimmy like my [D7]sister [G]Kate.


[D7]I went to a dance with my sister Kate;
[G]Everybody there thought she danced so great;
[D7]I realised a thing or two,
[G]When I got wise to something new:
[D7]When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance,
[G]And then I knew it was in her dance;
[C6]All the [Gdim]boys are [G6]going [E7]wild
Over [A9]sister [D7]Katie's [G]style.

[D7]I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate;
[G]Shake it like a bowl of jelly on a plate.
My [D7]mama wanted to know last night,
How [G](STOP) sister Kate could do it so nice, now
[D7]All the boys in the neighbourhood
Knew [G]Katie could shimmy, and it's mighty good
Well [C6]I may be [Gdim]late but I'll be [G6]up-to-[E7]date
When I can [A9]shimmy like my [D7]sister [G]Kate.
O [E7]yeah, [A9]shake it like my [D7]sister [G]Kate.

Instrumental of first verse

[D7]If I could shimmy like my Kate
I'd [G]never stay home, stay out too late
I'd [D7]get my stuff about high as a kite
You [G](STOP) know I do it for you every night, now
[D7]Now all the boys in the neighbourhood,
Knew [G]Katie could shimmy and it's mighty good
Well [C6]I may be [Gdim]late but I'll be [G6]up-to-[E7]date
When I can [A9]shimmy like my [D7]sister [G]Kate.
O [E7]yeah, [A9]shake it like my [D7]sister [G]Kate.

[D7]I wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate;

(slowing) That's [E7]right, [A9]shimmy..like my [D7]sister...[G]Kate.
