It was Sort of Like a City Folks Hoedown
There were a dozen or so, gals in kimonos, dancing with wooden, hobby horse looking things.
Back in the good old days, I bet they were riding real horses.
Equines are probably forbidden now, at the Juri-uma Parade because it's within the city limits.
But, they had other gals, doing folk dances, that any country boy would enjoy.
Some of them came out on the stage hootin' and hollerin' barefooted.
They were smiling, stomping their feet and, swinging those blades.
Just when you think, it can't get no better than this, it does.
The gal in charge of those with sickles and sticks, got them all off the stage.
And here's where the real hoedown stuff begins.
These girls were barefoot, smiling and dancing, too.
But, they were swinging some pretty authentic looking hoes.
Tell me, that don't remind you of a good old country hoedown !
