I Take A Lot Of Pride
Merle Haggard 1970
  (Chinook 115)   Wade Driver

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Things I learned in a hoboe jungle
Were things they never taught me in a classroom

Left allemande that corner, run home a dosado, and the men star left
Turn the partner right, left allemande that corner
Swing your own and promenade
It didn't take a lot of doin' (knowin')
But I take lot of pride in what I am


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, dosado
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Cast off 3/4, boys trade, boys run
Ferris wheel, centers pass thru
Swing the corner, promenade
It didn't take a lot of doin' (knowin')
But I take lot of pride in what I am


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I grew up a loner
Don't remember havin' any folks around


*I keep thumbin' through the phone books
Lookin' for my daddy's name in every town

Was Chinook 9
