Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade go once inside the ring
Back home and swing with that man
Join your hands, circle to the left you go
You do a left allemande, why don't you weave the ring
Big brother, little brother, sister, too
Dosado that girl and promenade
*They feel sorry for me cause
I'm the black sheep of the family


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They never mention me cause
I'm the black sheep of the family


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the heads (sides) promenade go halfway around
While the sides (heads) do a right & left thru
Square thru and you go four hands around you know
Dosado that corner girl and do an eight chain four
Well I tell her what my papa said to my mama
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Woman, wake me up early, be good to my dogs
And teach my children to pray


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Well I drive me a big old semi truck
I'm making payments on a two room shack

The men star right go once around
Left allemande then you box the gnat
Well four ladies promenade and roll it once inside the ring
Swing that man and promenade
Except me...
I'm the black sheep of the family


TAG

Swing her
The black sheep of the family

Black Sheep Lyrics ID: 2242

My daddy was a brakeman on a highball traveling train
Mama she raised four little children and the family had a good name
And papa and mama wanted all for us they never had
Big brother, little brother, sister too, none of them turned out half bad
'Cept me I'm the black sheep of the family

Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year off the folks own insurance plan
He's got a big long Mercedes Benz and a house overlooking the town
He sits in his Jacuzzi and he watches the sun go down
And he feels real sorry for me I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray

Little sister married a banker, yeah he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny lookin' little dog
He buys her big rings and diamonds and a brand new Japanese yacht
They like to get together and talk about all the things they've got
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray

I'm sayin' woman, wake me up early, be good to my dogs
And teach my children to pray

Lyrics by Danny Darst and Robert Altman.
Recorded by John Anderson.
