All Night Long
by Merle Haggard



Every Saturday long about now
I feed my chickens and my milking cows
Air's fillin' up with music ands ong
Gonna have a party all night long

[Chorus]
All night long, listen to the fiddle
Music's goin' strong
Heart's alive it's Saturday night
Gonna have a party all night long

I got a gal lives across the creek
Every time I look at her my knees get weak
First time I tried to take her on my knee
She took after me with a singletree

[Chorus]

Sun's up high the Fourth of July
Chickens won't lay and the cow's gone dry
Creek's dried up, I can't go fishin'
Should be workin' 'stead of sittin' here wishin'

Big watermelon hangin' on the vine
Said "Keep Out" I couldn't read that sign
Gun went off and I started to run
Left that watermelon in the sun

[Chorus]

Sun's comin' up, the rooster's crowin'
Fiddler's gone, I got to be goin'
Back to the house across the creek
But we'll be back at the end of the week

[Chorus]
