Diesel On My Tail
Jim & Jesse 1967
  (Solid Gold 1030)   Tom Roper

OPENER    Basic

4 ladies promenade inside the ring
Run back home and give that man a swing
Join up your hands and circle left around
Allemande left and weave the ring
*There's a diesel on my tail makin 90 miles an hour
Swing your girl and promenade
I can hear St. Peter callin, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I just pulled on to the highway in my little foreign car
Well it's rainin and the road is pretty bad


*I'm a huffin and a puffin and I'm tryin to make this grade
I wish I had some pedals on this car


*I'm a slippin and a slidin and afraid to touch the brake
Cause this doodle bug could never stand the jar


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru 4 hands around you go
4 hands and then a right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate, chain down the line
Star thru, pass thru, trade by
Swing the corner and promenade
I can hear St. Peter callin, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail


TAG

Take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail
