Common Man   (Fine Tune 102)   Rick Hampton
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
As the maid poured the wine, we prepared to dine
I knew I was feeling out of place
At a table as large as a river barge
And "I love you" written all on your face

Circle left
I'm just a common man, drive a common van
Left allemande, swing and promenade
*And if I had my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man's what I'll be


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and count 'em 4 hands and go
Get around your corner dosado
Swing thru and then, boys run right and then
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Girls lead, dixie style, make your wave, the boys trade
Boys cross fold, swing and promenade
And if I had my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man's what I'll be


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm gonna stay that way, 'cause high brow people lose their sanity
And a common man's what I'll be
