Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade that ring go
Run on home and swing there with your man
Join your hands circle to the left now, go walking around the set
Allemande left and right & left grand
Well, you grand right and left until you meet your girl
Swing the girl around and you promenade
*Tell all my friends the news put on their dancing shoes
Why, there's gonna be a shindig in the barn


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well, I can hardly wait till we roll up to the gate
'Cause there's gonna be a shindig in the barn


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade and go about halfway
Come down the middle pass the ocean here, extend
Swing thru and then, those boys run to the right
Ladies hinge, do a diamond circulate
Flip the diamond, girls trade
And the corner swing there
You swing the corner girl and promenade
If the boys will lend a hand, we'll clean it spick and span
Why, there's gonna be a shindig in the barn


TAG

A hand-clapping, foot-stomping, partner-swinging
Punch-drinking, regular old shindig in the barn

Shindig In The Barn
 
 

Hello mother here's your boy a talkin' I got somethin' wonderful to say
You know that girl I mentioned in my letter, well I'm bringin' her home Saturday
We're gonna tie a knot in Albuquerque then we'll start out early in the morn'
Tell all my friends the news, get on your dancin' shoes
There's gonna be a shindig in the barn

A fiddle playin', guitar pickin', do-si-do and heel a-kickin'
Regular ol' shindig in the barn
[ fiddle ]

I met up with her out in California and ma, she's a whole lot like you
Quiet turned and pretty and ol' fashioned, yellow hair and great big eyes of blue
Tell Orval Short to tune up his old fiddle and please leave at home his jug of corn
Get the boys to lend a hand and clean it spick and span
There's gonna be a shindig in the barn

A hand clappin', punch drinkin', foot stompin', partner swingin'
Regular ol' shindig in the barn
[ dobro ]

Now I'm a little worried about big brother, he's awful bad at jokin' like a fool
Be sure to tell him not to get too personal and tease her about our honeymoon
Tell pa the shaved look is finest, his eyes are gonna lie up more I warn
Oh I can hardly wait to roll up at the gate
Cause there's gonna be a shindig in the barn

A fiddle playin', guitar pickin', do-si-do and heel a-kickin'
Regular ol' shindig in the barn

Lyrics by Tommy Collins.
