Lyrics

 

Dream you’re the wind – in a whirl, in a spin

as you fly - cross a yard - to a field not so far

pass the woods - down a hill - jump a creek - feel a thrill,

hear a bow - hit a string - then you’ll know when it sings

you’ve been bound - for the last hoedown

 

Right by a lake - there’s a wall - where a gate

opens on - to a place - where light dew leave a trace

of footprints - on a lawn - like a trail come upon

or a chord - when it rings - that in turn softly brings

you the sound - of the last hoedown

 

     Every soul will be there - brought on beams of white moonlight

     Lending voices on air - calling dances ‘til twilight

 

Then right - there in the glow - of a fire you'll be told

through an old - fiddle song - that at last you belong

and you’ve found - the last hoedown

 

     Every soul will be there - brought on beams of white moonlight

     Lending voices on air - calling dances ‘til twilight

 

Then right - under a tree - join the new jubilee

step to step - toe to toe - to a timeless banjo

shadows dance - in a line - arm in arm intertwined

all at once - you’re aware - as that fiddle declares

to all around - it’s the last hoedown

that fiddle sounds - the last hoedown
