OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside the set
Swing your man, circle left
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Left allemande, turn partner right
Left allemande, promenade tonight
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway you do
Star thru, pass thru, eight chain thru
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Now corner swing, swing in time

Hitchin' A Ride
 
 

A thumb goes up, a car goes by
It's nearly 1 a.m. and here am I
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home by the morning light

I got no fare to ride a train
I'm nearly drownin' in the pouring rain
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home to my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Long distance call I got today
She sounded lonely so I'm on my way
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get me home, keep her satisfied

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

A thumb goes up, a car goes by
Oh, won't somebody stop and help a guy?
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Been away too long from my baby's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride
Ride, ride

Lyrics by Peter Callender and Mitch Murray.
Recorded by Vanity Fare.
