Old Age And Treachery
Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson 1991
  (Rhythm 250)   Wade Driver

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
*Old age and treachery, always overcome youth and skill
Left allemande that corner lady, dosado your own, then
Left allemande the corner, gonna weave around that ring
And even though we've spent our lives
Charging up the wrong side of the hill

Swing and promenade
Old age and treachery, always overcome youth and skill


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Some people say that our "get up and go"'s
Got up and gone
(I don't know 'bout you, Willie, but)
I can still jump as high
I just can't stay that high that long


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you square thru and go 4 hands and then you dosado
Swing thru, two by two, spin that top, the boys move up
And a right & left thru
C'mon and square thru 3/4 round
You're gonna swing that corner girl and promenade
Old age and treachery, always overcome youth and skill


TAG

4 ladies chain across and chain 'em back
Old age and treachery, always overcome youth and skill
