Ninety-Nine Ways
Charlie Gracie; Tab Hunter 1957
  (GR8 Trax 008)   Greg Fawell

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
There must be ninety-nine ways of losin' the blues
That I got from lovin' you
Oh ninety-nine ways but none of them do

Allemade left and weave the ring
There must be ninety-nine ways to do without you
Swing your girl and promenade her tonight (But I can't find one tonight)
I'm feelin' so bad and nothin' is right


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) flutter wheel straight across the ring
Then sweep a 1/4 more and pass thru
Pass the ocean here, recycle then
Boy walk girl dodge, boy run right
Now square thru and go just three hands around
Swing that corner girl and promenade
I'm feelin' so bad and nothin' is right


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway around
Down the middle and square thru 4
Four hands around then a right and left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel
Centers star thru, pass the ocean here
Extend, swing and promenade
I'm feelin' so bad and nothin' is right


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Baby I'm missin' your huggin' and kissin'
I'm lonely as can be
Tried others but none
Do what you're doin to me

Allemande and weave
There must be ninety-nine ways
Of losin' the blues

Swing your girl and promenade her tonight
(That I got from lovin you)
Mmm, ninety-nine ways
But I still love you


TAG

Allemande left come back and swing
Yes ninety-nine ways
But I still love you
