GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME TONIGHT. American, Air (cut time). A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). "We're gonna have a good time tonight" is a song and solo fiddle instrumental, from the playing and singing of north Alachua County, Florida, fiddler Cush Holston (1878-1964).

All you gentlemen (and) ladies, (have you heard the news?)
We're gonna have a good time tonight;
There's going to be a cakewalk, get on your walking shoes,
We're going to have a good time tonight.

All you gentlemen (and) ladies, (unintelligible phrase)
We're gonna have a good time tonight;
If you've come to dance with me, put on your dancing shoes,
We're going to have a good time tonight.
