Hold Whatcha Got
Ricky Skaggs 1987
  (Quadrille 898)   Richard Lane

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, walkin' once around that ring
Run on back and swing there with your man
Join hands and circle left, walkin' round the ring he said
Left allemande with the corner and weave the ring
Hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home baby
Hold whatcha got and I don't mean maybe

Swing your girl and all will promenade
Don't sell the house, don't wreck the car
Just stay there baby, right where you are
If you hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade, walk halfway round with your maid
Down the middle and here's a full square thru
Go all the way and when you're there
You get a right & left thru that outside pair
Veer left and here's a ferris wheel
Square thru and pull out three
Corner girl you're gonna swing for me
Take her by the hand, all promenade
Don't sell the house, don't wreck the car
Just stay there baby, right where you are
If you hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*In my mind I can see it's a pretty good sign that I need ya
That's why I can't wait to get back home
So squeeze yourself real good and tight and I'll be there before daylight
Hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay

Four boys promenade, walk around the ring I said
Run back, swing and promenade
Don't sell the house, don't wreck the car
Just stay there baby, right where you are
If you hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay


TAG

If you hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay

*When I get back, honey I ain't leavin'
Been a little too lonely, a little too much grievin'
When I get back homey this time I'm gonna stay
We won't fuss and we won't fight
This time things are gonna be all right
If you hold whatcha got, I'm comin' home to stay
