Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left your corner, turn a right hand round your own
Men star left in the middle, it's once around you roam
Gonna turn your partner by the right, corner box the flea
Pull her by, do a right and left grand, around the ring for me
When you meet this pretty little girl, gonna dosado this maid
Allemande left, come on back, now promenade
Wino's, skid row Joes, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston Jail, soon they'll have me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 gonna promenade, half way round you go
Lead to the right, and circle up four, make a line you know
Dance up and back, do a right & left thru, turn this girl and then
Pass thru and bend the line, dance up and back again
Star thru, pass thru, swing that corner maid
Allemande left, come on back, now promenade
Wino's, skid row Joes, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston Jail, soon they'll have me

Boston Jail
 
 

Wino, Skid Row Joe, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston jail
Now they've got me

In the county jail in old Boston they've got all kinds, you see
From all walks of life they come, all lost their liberty
Now some got wives just outside a waitin' for their return
Long timers, short timers, and some a waitin' to burn
Wino, Skid Row Joe, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston jail
Now they've got me

Now some will say yesterday I really had the jack
But paper and pen got me locked in them checks come a bouncin' back
And late at night when the lights go out they tell their tales of voe
About old friends and places they've been and where they'd like to go
Wino Skid Row Joe, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston jail
Now they've got me

But it's too late that one mistake condemns them to a cell
Where every dream's a forgotten thing and each day's a living hell
Listen guys if you're wise from this town you'll run
Or soon you'll find you're a pullin' time in the jail in old Boston
Wino Skid Row Joe, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston jail
Now they've got me

Wino Skid Row Joe, some on vagrancy
They've got all kinds in the Boston jail
Now they've got me

Lyrics by Tommy Stough and Tony Senn.
Recorded by Porter Wagoner.
