Mess Of The Blues
Elvis Presley 1960
  (Chicago Country 50)   Bob Poyner

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I just got your letter baby...
Too bad you can't come home

Men star right, left allemande and weave the ring
Since you're gone I've got a mess of the blues
Swing your own and promenade
Since you're gone I've got a mess of the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I ain't slept a wink since Sunday...
I can't eat a thing all day


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round
Sides square thru 4
Right & left thru
Eight chain 6
I got to get myself together before I
Swing my corner, promenade
I'm going to catch the next train over
I had to leave my blues behind
