Go Back

Barefoot Ballad

Words & Music by Fuller, Morris

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cos when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Give me a honk-tonk fiddle with a guitar in the middle and a melody
Humming like a fountain swinging out on smokey mountain

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cos when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Now the big toe's connected to the two toe
And the two toe's connected to the three toe
And the three toe's connected to the four toe
And the four toe's connected to the five toe
And the five toe and away we go

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cos when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Now the big toe's connected to the two toe
And the two toe's connected to the three toe
And the three toe's connected to the four toe
And the four toe's connected to the five toe
And the five toe and away we go

I wanna barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a barefoot ballad song.
