If It Weren't For Country Music
Clinton Gregory 1991
  (Quadrille 881)   Richard Lane

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I sit here by this jukebox in this country bar
I gotta hear some fiddle and some steel guitar

Left allemande you know, come back and dosado
Left allemande your corner girl and weave the ring
This old city gets me down, it's not been good to me
Swing your girl around and promenade you see
The future's lookin' bright cause I'm finally feelin' right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go about 1/2 way around
Walk in and square thru 4 hands around that town
Go all the way and then right and left thru my friend
Veer left and circulate move down the line
1/2 tag, scoot back
Corner swing the little corner girl around, promenade
The future's lookin' bright cause I'm finally feelin' right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I got holes in my boots, I got holes in my jeans
I got holes in my pockets, man you know what that means
With the bar tab and the jukebox, my money's all been spent
And I'd vote for Merle Haggard for president

Circle left
Play some Hank, play some Willie, play some Restless Heart
Left allemande, swing and promenade on home
The future's lookin' bright cause I'm finally feelin' right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy


TAG

Swing
The future's lookin' bright cause I'm finally feelin' right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy
