Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
Clayton Delaney was a guitar pickin' man
Left allemande and weave the ring
They say he used to pick up in Ohio with a five piece band
Do the dosado
The men star left, go once around, turn thru with your own
Left allemande the corner,
Swing your lady, promenade home
Clayton Delaney was a guitar pickin' man
(Or yodel)


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the (heads) square thru four hands around will do, do the dosado
Make an ocean wave, rock up and back, swing thru
Boys trade, girls circulate
Turn thru and then, go left allemande, dosado with your own
Swing the corner lady, left allemande and promenade home
Clayton Delaney was a guitar pickin' man
(Or yodel)


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
He was the best guitar picker in our town
Left allemande and weave the ring
Clayton didn't know it, but I used to follow him around
Do the dosado
The men star left, go once around, turn thru with your own
Left allemande the corner, swing your lady, promenade home
Clayton Delaney was a guitar pickin' man
(Or yodel)


CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
He could play just anything you see
Left allemande and weave the ring
But he never took his guitar and made it down to Tennessee
Do the dosado
The men star left, go once around, turn thru with your own
Left allemande the corner, swing your lady, promenade home
Clayton Delaney was a guitar pickin' man
(Or yodel)

The Year That Clayton Delaney Died
 
 

I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died
They said for the last two weeks
That he suffered and cried
It made a big impression on me
Although I was a barefoot kid
They said he got religion at the end
And I'm glad that he did

Clayton was the best guitar picker
In our town
I thought he was a hero
And I used to follow Clayton around
I often wondered why Clayton
Who seemed so good to me
Never took his guitar
And made it down in Tennessee

Well daddy said he drank a lot
But I could never understand
I knew he used to pick up in Ohio
With a five piece band
Clayton used to tell me "son
You'd better put that ol' guitar away
There ain't no money in it
It will lead you to an early grave"

I guess if I'd admit it
Clayton taught me how to drink booze
I can see him half stoned
A-pickin' out the Lovesick Blues
When Clayton died I made him a promise
I was going to carry on somehow
I'd give a hundred dollars
If he could only see me now

I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died
Nobody ever knew it
But I went out in the woods and I cried
While I know there's a lot of big preachers
That know a lot more than I do
It could be that the good Lord
Likes a little pickin' too

Yeah I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died

Lyrics by Tom T. Hall.
