Sweet Thang
Nat Stuckey; Ernest Tubb & Loretta Lynn 1966
  (Tarheel 167)   Chuck Mashburn, Dave Houlihan

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I slipped out of the house about sundown
While mama was a washin' her hair
You can bet your bottom dollar she'll come lookin' for me
When she finds that I'm not there
, circle left
And if she catches her sweet thang runnin' around
Left allemande, swing, promenade
She'll come blowin' like a cyclone right through that door
And I can hear exactly what she'll say


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well, heads (sides) square thru 4 hands now
Dosado the corner this a way
Swing thru with your sweet thang
Boy run right, ferris wheel I say
Pass thru, touch 1/4, then scoot back
Swing a sweet thang, promenade
You'd better take my advice and if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I gave my baby all my money on payday
Except a little she don't know I got
Cause there's a cute little waitress at the corner café
And she seems to like me quite a lot
, circle left
While we were sittin' in the back booth a havin' a talk
Left allemande, swing, promenade
When the door blew open my sweet thang walked in
Yellin' loud enough to wake the dead


TAG

You'd better take my advice and if you'll blink more than twice
You'd better have somethin' in your eyes
