Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER (48 beats)    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
I've seen nothin' like this since I've been on this farm!
The strangers camping out there have a baby in their arms
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) two couples pass thru and promenade halfway
Sides (Heads) a right & left thru and turn in time
Sides (Heads) square thru four hands around the ring you know
A right & left thru turn that girl and then veer to the left
Couples circulate, chain down the line
Keep this girl and promenade her home
* They could throw some blankets in the stable
* At least, they would be dry and safe from harm


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* A crowd had gathered all around the manger
* And they were talkin' 'bout God's big surprise


** And what they swore were angels sang in chorus
** "You'll find the new Messiah over there."

Come And See What's Happening In The Barn
 
 

Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
I've seen nothin' like this since I've been on this farm!
Those strangers campin' out there have a baby in their arms
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!

Must have been sometime 'bout close to midnight
A big ole' guy came knockin' at my door
He said his wife was about to have a baby
And she just couldn't travel anymore

I said the rooms had all been rented out
But they'd find shelter out there in the barn
They could throw some blankets in the stable
At least, they would be dry and safe from harm

Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
I've seen nothin' like this since I've been on this farm!
Those strangers campin' out there have a baby in their arms
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!

Sometime before dawn I was awakened
Light was floodin' through the windowpane
A star as bright as moonlight was a-shinin'
And pretty music I could not explain

And so I ran downstairs to have a look around
And I tell you I could not believe my eyes
A crowd had gathered all around the manger
And they were talkin' 'bout God's big surprise

Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
I've seen nothin' like this since I've been on this farm!
Those strangers campin' out there have a baby in their arms
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!

Come and see...

The shepherds said that they'd been on the hillside
Tellin' stories just to stay awake;
The baby lambs were sleepin' near the campfire
The ewes were huddled by the stone fence gate

And then the sky just seemed to open wide
With this sound and light that they could hardly bear
And what they swore were angels sang in chorus
"You'll find the new Messiah over there."

Now go and see what's happening in the barn
There's been nothin' like it ever happened on this farm!
Those strangers campin' out there have a baby in their arms
Go and see what's happenin' in the barn!

Come and see what's happenin' in the barn! (Come and see, come and see)
I've seen nothin' like this since I've been on this farm!
Those strangers campin' out there have a baby in their arms
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!

(Come and see, come and see, come and see)
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
(Come and see, come and see, come and see)
Come and see what's happenin' in the barn!
(Come and see, come and see, come and see)
Come and see!
