If The Devil Danced In Empty Pockets
Joe Diffie 1989
  (Chaparral 812)   Scott Smith

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time 'round you go
Get back home and swing you man 'round and 'round you know
Join hands circle to the left you go 'round in time
Allemande left with the corner girl, weave on down the line
If the devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
Swing and whirl the pretty little girl and promenade the line
I ain't got a penny, ain't got a nickel, not even a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway 'round the ring
Down the middle and a right & left thru, turn the girl I sing
Square thru in the middle of the ring, go movin' 'round the floor
Dosado the corner girl, make a wave you know
Swing thru, two by two, and spin the top my friend
Slide thru, swing the corner and promenade again
I ain't got a penny, ain't got a nickel, not even a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine

If the devil danced in empty pockets, he'd have a ball in mine
