Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Where does it go? The good Lord only knows
Seems like it was just the other day

Men star right
Left allemande and weave the ring
I was down in Green Gables a hawking them tables
Swing your girl around and promenade
For those loveable losers and no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, roll it one time and then
Same pair and do a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
For those loveable losers and no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four boys promenade
Get back, swing and join hands circle left
Left allemande and weave the ring
I was down in Green Gables a hawking them tables
And generally blowing all my hard earned pay
For those loveable losers and no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me

Honky Tonk Heroes
 
 

Low down leaving sun, I've done
Did everything that needs doin'
Woe is me, why can't I see
I best be leaving well enough alone
Them neon black nights, couldn't stay out of fights
Them keep a-haunting me memories
There is one in every crowd, for crying out loud
Why was it always turning out to be me

Chorus:
Where does it go, the good Lord only knows
It seems like it was just the other day
I was down at Green Gables, hawking them tables
And generally blowing all my hard earned pay
Piano rolled blues, danced holes in my shoes
There weren't any other way to be
For loveable losers, no account boozers
And honky tonk heroes like me

Lyrics by Billy Joe Shaver.
Recorded by Waylon Jennings.
