Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle
*There's a rhythm of the road that you can feel, you can feel
Like the feeling of quicksilver in your heel, in your heel

Allemande your corner, dosado your own
Men star by the left hand, go once around you roam
Turn your partner by the right, that corner allemande
Swing your own and promenade that land
And what would lighten our load, I don't know
It's the everlasting rhythm of the road


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*There's a rhythm of the road that makes a mix, makes a mix
Like a banjo and a guitar trading licks, trading licks


*There's a rhythm of the road that hides the miles, hides the miles
And it appears that we've been traveling for a while, for a while


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Four ladies chain and go 3/4 round you know
Head two couples promenade halfway around you go
Lead to the right with a dosado, go full around you know
Swing thru and then boys run right around you go
Tag the line go all the way thru,
Girls turn back and swing
Left allemande, then promenade that ring
And what would lighten our load, I don't know
It's the everlasting rhythm of the road

Rhythm Of The Road Lyrics ID: 455

I'd rather be home,
But I make my livin' on the go
Big silver eagle spreads her wings
And drops us at another show
I think about holdin' my baby tonight
As I listin to the big wheels roll
Three days into a six week tour,
Gettin' in the rhythm of the road

We pick and sing,
Say "goodnight" then we'll be flyin'
My world's a chain of one-night-stands
Strung together by the center line
I don't know where I'll wake up tomorrow,
But I can't let the tempo slow
Every town is just another beat,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

The rhythm of the road's got a mind of it's own
If you find it it'll drive you insane
Like the clackity-clack of a railroad track
I'm rattlin' like an old freight train
Towns are flashin' by, the folks are wavin' "hi"
They all start to look the same
Gotta stop for a minute, be glad I'm in it
Remember just why I came

Those highway signs, Lord, they keep me on the move
I think about givin' it up sometimes,
And gettin' in a diff'ren groove
But I just let the days slide by,
Get goin' with the flow
A four/four beat's the only time I keep,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

A four/four beat's the only time I keep,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

Livin' in the rhythm of the road

Lyrics by Dan McCoy.
Recorded by George Strait.
