Ridin My Thumb
Johnny Rodriguez 1973
  (Red Boot Star 1319)   Don Coy

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

*Circle left
**This old highway seems so lonely when goin' where you've been
And a lonesome song will make you cry time and time again

Left allemande the corner run home a dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Ridin my thumb to Mexico
Dosado and then you promenade
I'll ride this thumb till I see her again
I'm ridin my thumb to Mexico


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru count 'em 4 hands you go
You meet the sides make a right hand star you know
Heads star left in the middle roll it one time and then
Do a right and left thru the outside two
Swing thru and then swing thru again
Swing the corner lady promenade
I'll ride this thumb till I see her again
I'm riding my thumb to Mexico


TAG

Well, I'm riding my thumb to Mexico

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The billboards on highways and the brake light on the cars
**Make me jump out on the highway with my bag and my guitar


*The reason why she left me is not the reason why I'm here
**I'm a travelin kind of man, I just need a change of atmosphere
