The barn is burning while we sing… Song 319

This is a weird song. I was in a weird mood, so I used a banjo in it. I wrote four songs, and went with this one for lack of a better direction. Twas quite a ride.

Song 319: “Ol’ Bessie”

Genuine rambunctious catawaump
Dancing in the moonligh

The barn is burning while we sing
It’s alright

I’ve got a straw hat and you’ve got a fancy dress
The scarecrow don’t care what we do tonight

Ol’ Bessie has her work cut out tonight
The dinner bell is ringing

I’ve got a straw hat and you’ve got a fancy dress
The scarecrow don’t care what we do tonight

The hay looks mighty inviting
Don’t it darlin?
