Circle left
Many years ago when I was just a little boy
My daddy bought a truck that soon became his pride and joy

All the men star by the right, roll it once around
Allemande left that corner girl and weave around the town
It's a 1957 Chevy half-ton pickup truck
You swing and whirl the pretty girl and promenade around you go
When he takes it to the show we wish him lots of luck
In his 1957 Chevy half-ton pickup truck

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around you go
Do a dosado that corner lady one time you know
Make a wave and swing thru, boys run right
Gonna bend the line, move up & back, do a right & left thru tonight
Pass the ocean there, recycle
Swing the corner girl and promenade the set
When he takes it to the show we wish him lots of luck
In his 1957 Chevy half-ton pickup truck


In his 1957 Chevy half-ton pickup truck
