Down on the square the people got prepared
The day had come and the time was drawing near
All at once, the fiddler struck his strings
Just as fast all the people joined right in

(chorus) (They started singing)

La-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
La-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la

Johnboy grabbed Maryjane by the hand
Pulled her in the circle and then started to dance
They dos-a-dosed and he passed her all around
Everyone there said "they’re the best in the town".


(bridge) Your right foot goes in,
Do your left foot and then,
Repeat it all again (Yee Haw).

Stompin’ and clappin’ and havin’ a good time
A Hillbilly Ho-down, Couples squared on the line
Up on the stage the caller yelled the steps
Bow to your partner, now promenade to the west.
