Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the four little ladies chain go straight across that ring
Heads (sides) rollaway and star thru from there
Do the right & left thru and then left allemande my friend
Bow to the partner, weave around that square
*We don't have a thermostat, a big, long Cadillac
Dosado and promenade her, too
But I'll have something to brag about, something to brag about
Something to brag about in you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*We can't afford a swimming pool, but we've got a love that's cool

FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Now the head (side) 2 couples promenade go half around that ring
Sides (heads) star thru, do the right & left thru
Dosado go all the way around, square thru 5 hands
Heads (sides) divide, pass thru and partner trade
Left allemande that corner, come back a dosado
Swing the corner girl, promenade her, too
And I'll have something to brag about, something to brag about
Something to brag about in you


TAG

Hey allemande left with the corner girl
Bow to your partner, give her a whirl
She's got a log to brag about in you

Something To Brag About
 
 

(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.
