Playing in the Old Log Barn.
Copyright, 1895, by Widmer-Stigler Music Pub. Co.
Words by John Stevenson. Music by Albert W. Brown.

Of all the happy times of youth that I can call to mind,
When sporting 'round the dear old home so long since left behind,
There's one, so deeply printed, that no time shall e'er erase­'Twas playing in the old log barn upon the rainy days.
We, boys and girls together, and the neighbors' children, too;
Oh. how we loved the rainy days, and thought them all too few;
And how we'd climb the ladder And tumble in the hay,
When playing in the old log barn upon a rainy day.

And once when I had fallen thro' the hatchway to the floor.
Who first came down to bind my wound but little Clara More;
Then love, my first and only love, awoke there, as I lay,
From falling in the old log barn upon that rainy day. .
We, boys And girls together, and the neighbors' children, too, etc.

Now gone the dear old homestead, and short now is my life,
But Clara still sits by my side, my darling, little wife;
And often we renew our love and while the time away,
By talking of the old log barn upon that rainy day.
We, boys And girls together, and the neighbors' children, too, etc.
