Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*I've got a real important job in a large office building
Riding people in an elevator
I drive a '67 Chevy with busted tail lights

Allemande left on the corner, weave the ring
**I wear a $20 suit from J. C. Penney
Dosado and promenade
But I've got something to brag about, something to brag about
Something to brag about in you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*She's a short-order cook in an all-night cafe
Down on 18th Avenue and 4th Street
She's got a swinging mini-dress that she made for herself


**She's got 17 pages of top-value stamps

*Let's get married in the not-too-distant future
We'll rent a little flat on 29th Street
You know we'll hand our washing on the clothesline on the window


*We won't have no thermostat - no big, long Cadillac
But we'll have a love that's true


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Well those heads square thru four hands around you do
Pass thru the outside two and then
Chase right and go, hurry don't be slow
Boys run right and do a right & left thru
Dive thru, cross-trail thru, U-turn back and pass thru
Swing a little corner and promenade
But I've got something to brag about, something to brag about
Something to brag about in you

Something To Brag About Lyrics ID: 1722

(Man)
I've got a real important job
In a large office buildin'
Ridin' people in an elevator

I drive a '57 Chevrolet
With busted tail lights
Burned out valves
And a leaky radiator

I wear a twenty dollar suit
I bought from J.C. Penney's
Back in 1962

But I've got somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about, yes
Somethin' to brag about in you

(Woman)
I'm a short-order cook
At an all night cafe
Down on 18th Avenue and 12th Street

I wear a swingin' mini dress
That I made for myself
From Mama's kitchen curtains
And old bed sheets

I've got 17 pages
Of Top Value stamps
And one old pair of shoes

But I've got somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about in you

When you're with the fellas, I know
You start braggin' 'bout
My hourglass figure
And my big brown eyes

(Man)
You tell your girlfriends 'bout my
Good, good lovin'
And that's one pleasure that
Money can't buy

(both)
So let's get married
In the not-too-distant future
We'll rent a little flat on 29th Street

You know we'll hang our washin'
On the clothesline from the window
We'll feast on cornbread, butter beans and lunch meat

We won't have a thermostat
A big, long Cadillac
But we'll have a love that's true

(Man)
And I'll have somethin' to brag about
(Woman)
Yeah and I'll have, somethin' to brag about
(both)
Yeah, somethin' to brag about in you

Lyrics by Bobby Braddock.
Recorded by Charlie Louvin and Melba Montgomery; Mary Kay Place and Willie Nelson; Tammy Wynette and George Jones.
