Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Hey, once I was a honky tonkin' talk of the town
Ridin' high in my bad Chevrolet
I had seven pretty women, Lord, hangin' on me
A different one for every day

Left allemande and weave
Look at me now, all my women left town
Swing that girl and promenade
Well, I must confess my life's a big mess
I'm so low I could lay down and cry


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four boys promenade one time around
Get home and swing with your date
Join up sixteen hands, circle left in a ring
Left allemande, weave the ring
All I can do is just moan the blues
Swing that girl, promenade
Well, I must confess my life's a big mess
I'm so low I could lay down and cry


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around
Find the corner, dosado
Swing thru tonight, the boy run right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel on across, slide thru and swing
Swing that girl one time, promenade
You never know just how good you got it
Till you ain't got it no more


TAG

You never know just how good you got it
Till you ain't got it no more

You Never Know Just How Good You've Got It
 
 

Hey, once I was the honky-tonkin' talk of the town
Ridin' high in my bad Chevrolet
I had seven pretty women, Lord, hangin' on me
A different one for every day

But look at me now, all my women's left town
And a buck is gettin' hard to come by
Well I must confess
My life's a big mess
I'm so low, I could lay down and die

Well, you never know just how good you've got it 'till you
Ain't got it no more
You never know just how high you're flyin' 'till you
Fall face down on the floor
All I can do is just moan the blues
And dream about what I had before
Hey, you never know just how good you've got it 'till you
Ain't got it no more

Hey, lately I've become one pool-sharking fool
Make my livin' on them buddies of mine
I was cookin' last night when the chips were all down
So I laid everything I had on the line

Well I knew I'd regret that hundred dollar bet
But you never learn until it's too late
We flipped and I lost
Then I paid the cost
When the eight fell in on the break

Well, you never know just how good you've got it 'till you
Ain't got it no more
You never know just how high you're flyin' 'till you
Fall face down on the floor
All I can do is just moan the blues
And dream about what I had before
Hey, you never know just how good you've got it 'till you
Ain't got it no more

No, you never know just how
Good you've got it 'till you
Ain't got it no more

Lyrics by Mark Nessler.
Recorded by Tracy Byrd.
