Tom T. Hall – Barn Dance lyrics

One night as I was sleeping something awakened me
There was a light on in my barn so I went down to see
I peeked through the big ole crack in the door and what do you think I saw
The animals havin' a barn dance right in the horse's stall
And there was chicken doin' chicken reel and the muskart rambled on
The old cow did a cow-cow boogie and the rooster crowed the song
A mouse came out of his hidin' place and he danced on one leg
The old hen got so tickled that she almost laid an egg
[ banjo - guitar ]
They were all dressed up for the barn dance it made me want to laugh
The rabbit wore the big bowtie and the pig was a looking in the looking glass
And the goose danced with the gander till an old dog boddied in
The horse was horsin' around a lot till the mare got mad at him
And there was chicken doin'...
And there was chicken doin'...
