(We're A-Dancin') In The Old Red Barn Tonight    (1948)

Just pile all the hay by the barn today
And when you get done don't you go away
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Got the boards all waxed cause the floor is cracked
If it get too slick with the gunny sack
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Oh Doc's done rosined up his bow
And Zeke just tuned his old banjo
That old accordion man is standing by

Got a special date, I can hardly wait
Gotta scrub up now, hope the folks ain't late
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Hey banjo is my cowboy style
Now swing your partner go hog wild
You swing your maw and you swing your paw
And don't forget old Arkansas

Folks gather round, some are out from town
Some of 'em here for a real hoedown
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

Well shake a leg cause the gal named Peg
We will sit one out for the fatter kid
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

She's the cutest gal you ever did see
I hope she takes her time for me
The boys all wink at her when they pass by

We'll take a sips from the loving cup
And we're gonna dance till the sun comes up
We're dancing in the old red barn tonight

We're dancing in the old red barn tonight
