back yardin’ lyrics – stompin’ tom connors

back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

i may go broke on a business deal and i phoned up uncle lou
he said when i’m back yardin’ boy i don’t care what you do
back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

well i’m on the phone trying to get a loan and i called up cousin fred
he said when i’m back yardin’ boy ya might as well be dead
back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

well i had to phone my rich aunt joan, would ya like to buy some shares?
she said when i’m back yardin’ boy i mind my own affairs
back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

old brother clyde i can’t survive if i don’t get some loot
he said when i’m back yardin’ brother i just don’t give a hoot
back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

now don’t ya know that business deal came through for me at last
and i really say this back yardin’ stuff is really quite the gas
and everybody’s on the phone, my relatives wantin’ dough
i say it’s too bad i’m back yardin’ friends but there’s one place you can go
back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

back yardin’, back yardin’ that’s a chit chat party in the garden
just a bbq with a friend or two where you don’t give a… beg your pardon
that’s back yardin’

back yardin’
back yardin’
back yardin’
back yardin’
