Flat - Footin' It Lyrics

by Tom T. Hall

It started in Roanoke, a little while ago
A friend knew dance that you ought to know
They call it flat-footin' and it sure looks fine
Right now it's flat-footin' it time

And you'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is
Until you hear that guitar pickin' it, pick it

Just let your arms hang right where they are
Then you'll start flat-footin' it right through the bar
Turn yourself loose all the law will allow
And you're doing that flat footin' it now

You'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is
Until you hear that drummer pickin' it, pick it

It started in Roanoke and came a long way
Now it's a flat-footin' it USA
Good for your spirits and good for your health
You oughta try a little flat footin' yourself

And you'll be flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
Don't know just how good it is
Until you hear that bass fiddle pickin' it, pick it

Well, all of the students at the University
Shocked and amazed the existing faculty
Some dropped Biology and some cut their math
To enroll in a flat-footin' it class

Flat-footin' it, flat gettin' it
You don't know just how good it is
Until you hear that band a' pickin' it, pick it
