You Can't Buy Your Way Out Of The Blues
George Strait 1987
  (Lore 1235)   Bob Graham

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*I've been workin' at forgettin' since you said goodbye
Lookin' for some good times, the best money can buy
But it's a bad investment, there's no long term dividend

Left allemande that corner, weave that ole ring
I never thought that I'd be missin' you this way
Swing that gal around, promenade that ole ring
You can buy a night out on the town
You can buy a loveboat cruise
But you can't buy your way out of the blues


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two square thru and sides rollaway
Everybody dosado, gonna make an ocean wave
Swing thru two by two, boys run to the right
Pass thru, wheel & deal, those centers pass thru
Everybody pass thru, trade by, swing thru
Girls turn back, boys trade, promenade
You can buy a night out on the town
You can buy a loveboat cruise
But you can't buy your way out of the blues


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain 3/4 and go
Turn that gal around, you circle left you know
Four ladies roll away, you circle and then
Left allemande that corner, weave that ole ring
I never thought that I'd be missin' you this way
Swing that gal around, promenade that ole ring
You can buy a night out on the town
You can buy a loveboat cruise
But you can't buy your way out of the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*My pocketbook is empty, but I'm still feeling bad
I might as well admit it, you're the last goot time I had
It's been a high priced lesson, I can't justify the cost
