Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Folks call me a maverick, guess I ain't too diplomatic
I just never been the kind to go along

Left allemande your corner, docey round your own
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
But sometimes you just can't be afraid to wear a different hat
Swing your lady go round, and then you promenade that track
Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Sometimes you got to go against the grain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the head (side) two couples lead to the right and do the right & left thru
Veer to the left and couples circulate
Bend the line and touch 1/4
Eight circulate, boys run then do the right & left thru
You dive thru and square thru 3/4 round in time
Swing the corner lady go round and promenade that line
Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Sometimes you got to go against the grain


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Well I have been accused of makin' my own rules
There must be rebel blood just a-running through my veins

Left allemande your corner, docey round your own
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
Old Noah took much ridicule for building his great ark
But after forty days and forth nights he was lookin' pretty smart

Swing your lady go round, and then you promenade that track
Sometimes It's best to brave the wind and rain
By havin' strength to go against the grain


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Well there's more folks than few who share my point of view
But they're worried if they're gonna sink or swim

Left allemande your corner, docey round your own
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
But if you're gonna make a difference, if you're gonna leave your mark
Swing your lady go round, and then you promenade that track
Go bustin' in like old John Wayne
Sometimes you go to go against the grain


TAG

Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Sometimes you got to go against the grain

Against The Grain
 
 

Folks call me a maverick
Guess I ain't too diplomatic
I just never been the kind to go along
Just avoidin' confrontation
For the sake of conformation
And I'll admit I tend to sing a different song
But sometimes you just can't be afraid
To wear a different hat
If Columbus had complied
This old world might still be flat
Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain

Well, I have been accused
Of makin' my own rules
There must be rebel blood
Just a-runnin' through my veins
But I ain't no hypocrite
What you see is what you get
And that's the only way I know
To play the game
Old Noah took much ridicule
For building his great ark
But after forty days and forty nights
He was lookin' pretty smart
Sometimes it's best to brave the wind and rain
By havin' strength to go against the grain

Well, there's more folks than a few
Who share my point of view
But they're worried
If they're gonna sink or swim
They'd like to buck the system
But the deck is stacked against 'em
And they're a little scared
To go out on a limb
But if you're gonna leave your mark
You can't follow like a bunch of sheep
You got to listen to your heart
Go bustin' in like old John Wayne
Sometimes you got to go against the grain

Nothin' ventured, nothin' gained
Sometimes you've got to go against the grain

Lyrics by Bruce Bouton, Larry Cordle, and Carl Jackson.
Recorded by Garth Brooks.
