Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies chain about 3/4
You turn and chain them straight across that ring.
Put the ladies back to back, boys promenade half way,
Turn your corner left, full turn, and a right and left grand
Grand right and left until you meet your darling,
Dosado and promenade her home,
*Tell all my friends the news, put on their dancing shoes,
Why, there's gonna be a shindig in the barn.


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


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now 1 and 3 (2 and 4) go forward up and back now
Square thru, go walking round the ring,
Swing thru the outside two, boys run you do,
Couples circulate, and then, wheel and deal,
Dive thru, pass thru, and swing the corner,
Left allemande, come back 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-clappin, foot stompin, 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.
