Lord Have Mercy On A Country Boy   (Quadrille 888)   Shane Greer
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
*When I was young, wild and free
Walkin' these hills in my bare feet

Men star by the right and turn it one time and go to the corner lady
Allemande left, come on and weave the ring
I live in the city, but I don't fit in
Swing with your girl and promenade, walkin' around
I've got no home and I've got no choice
Lord have mercy on a country boy


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle, get 4 hands around
Move right out and make a right hand star, turn it go
Heads star by the left, move it and go to the corner lady
While you meet, do the right & left thru
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Half tag, swing the corner, promenade the ring
I've got no homw and I've got no choice
Lord have mercy on a country boy


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
They dammed the river and they dammed the stream
They cut down the cypress and the sweet gum trees
Now there's a laundromat and a barber shop
And now the whole meadow is a parking lot

4 boys promenade one time around
Come back home, swing and promenade the line
I've got no home and I've got no choice
Lord have mercy on a country boy


TAG

Lord have mercy on a country boy

*When I was young, I remember well
I'd hunt the wild turkey and the bobwhite quail
