Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade the ring
Box the gnat at home, then you swing
Circle left go walking around you know
Allemande corner, weave you go
Ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
Dosado and then you promenade
So don't go writin' hot checks down in Mississippi
Cause there ain't no good chain gang


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around you go
Around that corner go a dosado
Swing thru, boys trade, turn thru and then
Allemande the corner, weave the ring
Ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
Dosado and then you promenade
So don't go writin' hot checks down in Mississippi
Cause there ain't no good chain gang

There Ain't No Good Chain Gang
 
 

I'll bet it ain't rainin' back home
I'll bet your sister's still on the phone
Momma's in the kitchen, cooking fried chicken
Wishing that I hadn't done wrong

Don't you worry about us none now momma
Everything's gonna be all right, momma
They're teaching us a lot of new things in here
Things like...

Chorus
There ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writin hot checks, down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

Papa's readin' yesterday's mail
Wishin' that the hay was all bailed
I'll bet he's a-wishin' he could go fishin'
And here I am a-laying in jail

Don't you worry about us now, Papa
They're teaching us a lesson a day, we're learning pretty well, too
We've already learned a whole lot of stuff already
Things like...

Chorus

Lyrics by Hal Bynum and Dave Kirby.
Recorded by Waylon Jennings; Johnny Cash.
