Walk around your corner, see saw round your pet Join hands and circle to the left I was down at the stables honkin' them tables Left allemande that corner, gonna weave that old ring Piano roll blues, I danced holes in my shoes Dosado that girl and promenade For those loveable losers and no account boozers And honky tonk heroes, like me
FIGURE C4, corner progression
Heads square thru and go 4 hands around you know Dosado that corner girl Swing thru and then, boys run right my friend Ferris wheel and then center 4 curlique And make a right hand star, one full turn Swing that corner girl and promenade For those loveable losers and no account boozers And honky tonk heroes, like me
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
