Heads lead, star the route *I flew into Dallas feeling kinda low Thought I'd make me a bit of change at the rodeo I heard the line boss saying, you ornery cowpokes 15 bills to any man who can ride Showboat Circle to the left and go, left allemande you know Swing your lady there and promenade **Hold the reins, watch the change Turn him loose, that cayuse I'm gonna ride
FIGURE Plus, unknown progression
Head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands around you go Around the corner lady there, do a dosado Make your wave and the ladies trade, spin the top and then Move right along and box the gnat, fan the top you know Recycle and go, star thru and roll Swing the corner lady and promenade Hold the reins, watch the change Turn him loose, that cayuse I'm gonna ride
*He bucked me once a running, then he looked me in the eye I slid down around his neck reaching for the sky Then he sent me flying, like a little bird Lord, I think when I came down I ate ten pounds of dirt
**Hold the reins, ain't it a shame That cayuse done thrown me loose and broke me up
*I woke up in the general, feeling kinda hurt Till I saw a blue-eyed blonde, turned out to be my nurse She fixed me up in patches and love I thought was free Till she said, "now cowboy, you're gonna marry me"
**Hold the reins, ain't it a shame I'm getting married and ol' Showboat you're to blame
