Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Do an allemande left in the alamo style, you balance in and out
Swing thru, go two by two, you balance again
Swing thru go two by two, those boys run right
Do a partner trade, left allemande, weave, weave tonight
Don't you think it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
Swing that girl around and promenade her, don't lag
You think it's funny, but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru four hands you go
To that corner lady do a dosado, make an ocean wave
Linear cycle, then you move it across the floor
And when you're through, slide thru, and a right & left thru
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 around
Swing that corner lady, promenade that old town
You think it's funny, but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?

Holding The Bag
 
 

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember out in Austin that time that we got tight?
You told that ole boy that I wanted to fight
Now, Moe, you know I really thought a that you could win
And I didn't see no sense in me a steppin' in

You almost got me killed when you started to brag
And that's when you ran off and left me holding the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
That old ugly one for me and the pretty one for you
Well, Joe, I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar
Yeah, you were up front a playin' lover's tag
While I was in the back seat just a holdin' the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember when I needed your alibi?
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DUI
Now after all we've done, it's a wonder we're friends
But old Pal you know we'd do it again

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Lyrics by Buck Moore and Pat Bunch.
Recorded by Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley.
