Circle left Where does it go, the good Lord only knows Seems like it was just the other day Left allemande that corner, dosey your own Left allemande and now you weave that ring Piano roll blues, I danced holes in my shoes Swing your girl around and promenade For those lovable losers and no-account boozers And honky tonk heroes like me
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Heads you promenade, halfway round you go Walk right in and do the right & left thru (backaway), come on sides Sidessquare thru now, four hands you do Everybody make a right hand star and you roll it go Those sides star left, and ya roll it round you know Swing your corner girl and promenade For those lovable losers and no-account boozers And honky tonk heroes like me
For those lovable losers and no-account boozers And honky tonk heroes like me

Low down leaving sun, I've done
Did everything that needs doin'
Woe is me, why can't I see
I best be leaving well enough alone
Them neon black nights, couldn't stay out of fights
Them keep a-haunting me memories
There is one in every crowd, for crying out loud
Why was it always turning out to be me
Where does it go, the good Lord only knows
It seems like it was just the other day
I was down at Green Gables, hawking them tables
And generally blowing all my hard earned pay
Piano rolled blues, danced holes in my shoes
There weren't any other way to be
For loveable losers, no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me
