Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Now those four little ladies promenade
Go walking round inside the ring
Box the gnat at home
Four men star left I sing, one time in the middle
Then you box the gnat, then hang on, pull by
Allemande that corner girl, now weave that ring and fly
Big boss man
Swing that girl and promenade
You better hear me when I call
Cause you ain't so big, just tall, that's all


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now those head two couples you promenade halfway round the square
Come down the middle and square thru 4 hands around from there
Four hands around and then right & left thru and turn the girl
Slide thru and square thru 4 hands around you go
Big boss man, trade by
To the corner swing and promenade
You better hear me when I call
Cause you ain't so big, just tall, that's all

Big Boss Man
 
 

Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Oh, you ain't so big
You're just tall, that's all

You got me working, boss man
Working 'round the clock
I want me a drink of water
You won't let me stop
You big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Gonna get myself a boss man
One gonna treat me right
Work me hard in the day time
But I'll sure rest easy at night
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Lyrics by Al Smith and Luther Dixon.
Recorded by Elvis Presley; Jerry Reed; Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; others.
