Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle to the left
On a night coach out of Dallas
I'm heading for the bright lights of LA

Now the men star right, go once around
Do an allemande left with the corner
Come back and weave the ring
But I wonder if I'm wasting my time
Dosado and promenade go walking round in time
I'm leaving Dallas, tonight I'm on my way
I'm headed for the bright lights of LA

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Now those heads square thru, get me four hands and then
Round that corner dosado and go, single circle to a wave
Boys run right, you bend the line and then
Square thru count to three
Swing the corner, she's waiting there and then
Swing a little lady, promenade, go walking round the ring
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas, with a little prayer
Hey, maybe she'll be waiting for me there

Night Coach Out Of Dallas

On a night coach out of Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA
There's not too much in Dallas to make a man who's free unpack and stay
I guess I've been a lotta miles and still ain't got no where
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas, maybe she'll be waitin' for me there

Last week it was Houston, the week before somewhere in New Orleans
With a pretty green-eyed redhead who swore that she could fill my life with dreams
But what she had offer came as no surprise to me
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA

But I wonder if I'm wastin' my time
Cause what it takes to satisfy, most people never find
Next week I might spend sometime in the foothills of the mountains or by the sea
Somewhere there must be someone with love that will belong to only me

So night coach take me out of here can't stay another day
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA

But I wonder if I'm wastin' my time...

Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA

Lyrics by David Hall and Louis Redding.
Recorded by Faron Young.
