I'd Better Travel On

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

All 4 ladies chain 3/4 round and then
Turn your girl and circle left, go walking round again
Allemande left your corner, pass one and curlique
Boys run right, left allemande and weave the ring
*I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Dosado and promenade along
**I've laid around and played around this old town too long
So, I think that I better travel on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples flutter wheel and sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and dosado one time once more
Swing thru and then, boys run to the right
Bend the line, go up to the middle and back, slide thru
Right & left thru and turn her, flutter wheel and then
Swing your corner girl, promenade my friend
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
So, I think that I better travel on


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Papa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home

**Papa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home
Cause he's been on the chain gang much too long

*Five sheriff and police are coming after me

**Five sheriff and police are coming after me
And I feel like I've got to travel on
