Ain't Livin' Long Like This
Emmylou Harris; Waylon Jennings 1978
  (Square Tunes 1113)   Mr. Kaneko, Jr.

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic - SSD Week 1

Circle left
I looked for trouble and found it, son
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun

Allemande the corner lady, do a dosado
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
Ain't livin' long like this
Swing your girl, promenade
Ain't living long like this, am I baby?


FIGURE    Basic - SSD Week 11, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, go 3/4 around
Sides (heads) go right & left thru
Sides (heads) pass thru, circle to a line
Go forward up and back, 1,2, 3, 4!
Touch 1/4, now, all 8 circulate
Boys run right
Swing your corner, promenade back home
Ain't livin' long like this, am I baby?


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(music only)
Allemande corner, weave the ring
Ain't livin' long like this
Swing your girl, promenade
Ain't livin' long like this, am I baby?

Am I baby?
