Ace In The Hole
George Strait 1989
  (Red Boot Star 1326)   Bob Barnes

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
You've got to have an ace in the hole
A little secret that nobody knows
Life is a gamble, a game we all play

Allemande that corner, and weave the ring that way
You've got to learn to play your cards right
Swing your girl and promenade tonight
Don't put it all on the line, for just one roll
You've got to have an ace in the hole


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the heads (sides) square thru and you go, go, go
Around the corner with a dosado
You touch 1/4, then a walk and dodge and then
Do a partner trade and when you do, right & left thru my friend
Flutter wheel full around you go, slide thru
Swing and promenade
No matter what you do, no matter where you go
You've got to have an ace in the hole


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain, chain, chain across that ring
You rollaway and circle left and then
4 ladies rollaway, well, you circle left that way
Allemande that corner lady, weave the ring I say
You've got to learn to play your cards right
You swing and promenade tonight
Don't put it all on the line, for just one roll
You've got to have an ace in the hole
