Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
He's out there somewhere every night
Where the music's playing loud
Doing all the 50's steps
In a 1990's crowd

Circle left
The dim lights hide his mileage lines
Left allemande, promenade the land
He's 39 and holding
Holding everything that he can


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the heads (sides) promenade go half way around
The sides (heads) do a right & left thru
Well you square thru 4 hands you're gonna go
Dosado and do an eight chain 4
He's holding to a candle
Swing the corner promenade the land
He's 39 and holding
Holding everything that he can


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
He's 39 and holding
Holding everything that he can
From 17 to 65
To prove he's still a man

Circle left
His candle burns at both ends
Left allemande, promenade the land
He's 39 and holding
Holding everything that he can


TAG

He's 39 and holding
Holding everything that he can

Thirty-Nine And Holding Lyrics ID: 2057

He's out there somewhere every night
The music's playin' loud
He's doing all-a those fifty's steps
He's in a 1980 crowd

Dim lights hide the mileage line
Clairol hides the gray
And he won't mention anything
To give his old age away

Oh Lord, he's thirty-nine and he's holdin'
He's holdin' everything that he can
From seventeen to twenty-five
He'll prove he's still a man

Hey boy, you're holding to a candle
And it's a-burning at both ends
Thirty-nine and holding
A-holdin' everything that I can

Well, now you can bet he'll never see
Thirty-nine, again
Son, you oughta've given up a long time ago
But you just keep on hangin' in

He still thinks that he's the man
That he once used to be
Boy, you're just thirty-nine
And you're dreamin'
Acting twenty-three

Oh-oh, he's thirty-nine, he's holdin'
Holdin' everything that he can
From seventeen to twenty-five
He'll prove he's still a man

He's a-holding to a candle
And it's a-burning at both ends
He's thirty-nine and he's holdin'
Holdin' everything he can

He's thirty-nine and he's dreamin'.

Lyrics by Jerry Foster and Bill Rice.
Recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis.
