Ain't No Cure For The Rock & Roll
The Oak Ridge Boys 1973
  (Ocean 14)   Greg Edison

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*I was still a boy when it happened to me
I started shakin' uncontrollably
The doctor came and shook his head
And mama cried when the doctor said

Four ladies promenade, at home swing
Promenade once more
**It's got his body, now it's after his soul
Ain't no cure for the rock & roll


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Walkin' down the street with a friend of mine
Shufflin' my feet just a-keepin' time
From out of nowhere came a guitar click
Nothin' fancy, but it did the trick


**It wasn't very long until the dreaded disease
Spread through the very best of families


*Then I turned into a little dancin' fool
I thank my friend for keepin' it cool, he said
Give him room and he'll be just fine
He's been this way since 1959


**Folks had head about the Devil's Curse
But they all agreed it was a whole lot worse


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade half, walk in a right & left thru
Square thru 4 hands, dosado, eight chain four
Rock & roll, rock & roll
Swing your corner, promenade her on home
It's got his body, now it's after his soul
Ain't no cure for the rock & roll


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru you go to get four
You meet your corner, slide thru
Pass thru, bend the line, load the boat
When you get through do the right & left thru
Dive thru, square thru 3/4,
Swing your corner, promenade
It's got his body, now it's after his soul
Ain't no cure for the rock & roll
