Heartaches By The Number
Guy Mitchell; Ray Price; George Jones; others 1959
  (Scope 603)   Dick Hoffman

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and circle left round that ring you go
Left allemande the corner, dosado
Men star by the right hand, it's once around you go
Left allemande then weave the ring you know
Heartaches by the number, troubles by the score
Dosado your lady, then promenade once more
Heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting is the day my world will end


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads lead right, circle 4 you do
Make a line and then a right & left thru
Star thru, pass thru, chase right you do
Boys run around the girl and then pass thru
Swing the corner lady round and go left allemande
Come on back and promenade that land
Heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting is the day my world will end


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

1 & 3 square thru 4 hands around you go
Dosado the outside two, make an ocean wave you know
Swing thru two by two, girls turn back and then
Wheel & deal to face that two and then, pass thru
Trade by and square thru 3 hands around and thenm
Trade by and swing that corner lady round you do
Promenade on home with a love that you can't win
But the day that I stop counting is the day my world will end
