Lyrics

I was walking by Hick's Mortuary the other day. Saw my old friend Lou just grinning from ear to ear. Terrible thing happened to Lou. terrible accident. But there he was. At Hick's Mortuary where the country people go.

One night only dead on stage, the only place to be. the gravedigger sound is laying it down, it's a hangman's Jamboree. Here comes the headless tractorman, driving up the road, a little swing and jive in the afterlife. It's the only way to go.

Hick's Mortuary, where the country people go. After giving life their best from the seeds that they sow. Now hold on to your dancing shoes when you reach those pearly gates. There's a how down shaking at hick's tonight, It's the bare bones boggie parade.

There wasn't no story in Maynard Falls got past old Lucy Brown. She kept that coffee nice and hot at the Ruckstop turnaround. Till a twister came and took our little lucy in the sky. Now she's cutting the rug at Hick's tonight while the band plays Tulsa Time.

Hick's Mortuary where the country people go, after that last lemonade and hoeing that last row. Now don't you think it's over, The party's just begun. they'll be swinging them barebones all night long, gonna rattle those chains, have some fun.

//bridge//
Just shake it all out till you hear a crack. Two steps forward. three steps back. Shuffle to your right, turn around. A little leap of faith got you dancing now.
Just Shake it all out till you hear a crack. Two steps forward. Three steps back, put your hands in the air wave goodbye, got you doing the barebones now.

chorus out...
