Headin' On Down to the Barn

Long ago I grew up on a farm
Eight years old heading down to the barn
5 o'clock each and everyday
The animals knew I was on my way
With some milk, some feed, and a bale of hay
I always knew they were happy to see me ‘cause...

Chorus
The cat meowed
And the dog went, "woof!"
And the horse went, "phbbbbbbbb"
And stomped his hoof
And the turkey gobble-gobbled
And the cow went, "moooooo"
And the itty-bitty baby went, "boo-hoo-hoo"
‘Cause he was hungry too!

Long ago I grew up on a farm
Nine years old heading down to the barn
5 o'clock each and everyday
The animals knew I was on my way
With some milk, some feed, and a bale of hay
I always knew they were happy to see me ‘cause...

Chorus

It's been long ago since I grew up on a farm
My son is eight years old
So I'm sending him down to the barn
5 o'clock each and everyday
The animals know someone's on their way
With some milk, some feed, and a bale of hay
"Hey Dad!" They were happy to see me!"

Chorus
