The Play-Party in Indiana.                        103
Come down this way with your weevily wheat, Come down this way with your barley, Come down this way with your weevily wheat, To bake a cake for Charley.
Miss Rena Bushing, Johnson Tp.
1.    It's step her to your weevily wheat, It's step her to your barley,
It's step her to your weevily wheat, To bake a cake for Charley.
Refrainó
0 Charley, he's a fine young man,
0 Charley, he's a dandy,
He loves to hug and kiss the girls, And feed 'em on good candy.
The higher up the cherry tree, The riper grow the cherries, The more you hug and kiss the girls, The sooner they will marry.
2.    It's left hand round your weevily wheat, etc. after the pattern
of stanza 1. The refrain follows each stanza.
3.    It's left hand round your weevily wheat, etc.
4.    It's both hands round your weevily wheat, etc.
5.    Come down this way with your weevily wheat, etc.
6.    It's swing oh swing your weevily wheat, etc.
Mrs. Frank Brinson, Johnson Tp.
Miss Fannie Stewart (Shelby Tp.) gives a number of additional stanzas, two of which are of especial importance.
Over the river to water the sheep, To measure up the barley, Over the river to water the sheep, To bake a cake for Charley.
My pretty little pink, I suppose you think,
1 care but little about you,
But I'll let you know before you go I cannot do without you.
Scorn one, round your weevily wheat, Scorn one, round your barley, Scorn one, round your weevily wheat, To bake a cake for Charley.
