Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside that ring
Box the gnat at home and give her a swing
Join all your hands and circle left you know
Left allemande that corner and then weave that old ring
Remember when you told that boy I wanted to fight?
Dosado that lady, promenade her right
You may think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade and go halfway
Come down the middle and square thru it's four hands I say
Four hands around and do that right & left thru
You'll do an eight chain six and count 'em you do
Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
Swing that corner lady and promenade too
You were up front playing lovers' tag
While I was in the back seat just a holding the bag


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads promenade and go halfway
Sides go right & left thru and turn 'em I say
Same two square thru and go four hands you know
You dosado and do an eight chain 4
Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
Swing the corner lady, promenade her too
You were up front playing lovers' tag
While I was in the back seat just a holding the bag

Holding The Bag
 
 

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember out in Austin that time that we got tight?
You told that ole boy that I wanted to fight
Now, Moe, you know I really thought a that you could win
And I didn't see no sense in me a steppin' in

You almost got me killed when you started to brag
And that's when you ran off and left me holding the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
That old ugly one for me and the pretty one for you
Well, Joe, I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar
Yeah, you were up front a playin' lover's tag
While I was in the back seat just a holdin' the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember when I needed your alibi?
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DUI
Now after all we've done, it's a wonder we're friends
But old Pal you know we'd do it again

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Lyrics by Buck Moore and Pat Bunch.
Recorded by Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley.
