    • Barney's Second Original Song:

      "Oh, My Darin' Barney Fife"
      (Sung to the melody of "Oh, My Darlin' Clementine")

      In a jailhouse, down in Dixie, fightin' crime and riskin' life,
      Dwelled a sheriff and his buddy, pistol-packing Barney Fife.
      Oh, my darin', oh, my darnin' oh, my darin' Barney Fife.
      He's a deadly crime-stopper, what a copper Barney Fife.

      Then one day there come a-ridin' two bad men to rob a bank.
      But Fife was tricky, a dead-eye dickey. Now they're locked up in the tank.

      (Andy added the following)
      Oh, my Barney, oh, my Barney, had a jail and couldn't lock it.
      Had one bullet for his pistol, had to keep it in his pocket
