Tommy Collins – Shindig In The Barn lyrics

Hello mother here's your boy a talkin' and 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's 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
[ fiddle ]
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 honemoon
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'...
