Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw them on the floor
Dance in the kitchen till the morning light
Louisana Saturday Night

Waitin' in the front yard, sittin' on a log
A single shot rifle and a one-eyed dog
Yonder come our kin-folk in the moonlight
Louisiana Saturday Night

Waitin' in the front yard, sittin' on a log
A single shot rifle and a one-eyed dog
Yonder come our kin-folk in the moonlight
Louisiana Saturday Night

Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw them on the floor
Dance in the kitchen 'till the morning light
Louisiana Saturday Night

My brother Bill and my other brother Jack
Barrel full of beer and a possum in a sack
Fifteen kids in the front porch light
Louisiana Saturday Night

When the kin-folk leave and the kids get fed
Me and my woman gonna slip off to bed
Have a little fun when we turn out the lights
Louisiana Saturday Night

Well you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow
Kick off your shoes and you throw them on the floor
Dance in the kitchen 'till the morning light
Louisiana Saturday Night

    General CommentUnless Alabama covered this, this is actually a Mel McDaniel song. Regardless, it's obviously a song about a typical idyllic southern Saturday night. I have actually had nights like this, except for the possum in a sack stuff.

    General Commentyeah Alabama did a cover on this...as well as the nitty gritty dirt band...but the mel mcdaniel version is the best.
