OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I don't know what I'm doin' here
I could be someplace else
Like Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doin' here
I could be someplace else
Like Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine

Allemande left the corner, come back and dosado
Left allemande, come back and promenade
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And there ain't no way to get away


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around in time to that outside two
Do a right & left thru, pass thru, trade by
Then do the right & left thru, pass thru, cloverflo in time
Swing that corner girl and you go left allemande
Come on back and promenade that hall
Stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And there ain't no way to get away

Spokane Motel Blues
 
 

I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine

The dogs are running down in Memphis
And them nags are running in LA
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And there ain't no way to get away

Willie Nelson's picking out in Austin
And Waylon's hanging out in Mexico
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
And Kris is making movin' picture shows

Hey, I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine

Well I know they're dancing in New Orleans
And old Chicago's bright as day
I'm stuck in Spokane in a motel room
Lord, I wish I had a Dolly Parton tape

Well Hill and Bare and Billy Joe they're gambling
And ol' TP's frying croppie all night long
They're down at Tootsie's eating chili
I'm stuck in Spokane a-writing songs

Hey, I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' clear moonshine

Lyrics by Tom T. Hall.
