Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and circle to the left around that ring go
Reverse back single file ladies take the lead
Girls step out and backtrack, meet your partner box the gnat
Pull on by left allemande and weave around the ring
Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band
Dosado around then promenade
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrow
Do, do, do, looking out my back door


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade, half around there with that maid
Same ladies chain and you turn 'em and then
2 & 4 (1 & 3) square thru 4 hands around and when you're through
Spin chain thru, looking out my back door
Look at all those happy people dancing on the lawn
Boys trade, corner swing, promenade that ring
Bother me tomorrow, today I'll buy no sorrow
Do, do, do, looking out my back door

Looking Out My Back Door
 
 

Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.
Imagination sets in, pretty soon I'm singin',
Doo, doo, doo, Lookin' out my back door.

There's a giant doing cartwheels, a statue wearin' high heels.
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
A dinosaur Victrola list'ning to Buck Owens.
Doo, doo, doo, Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo doo.
Wond'rous apparition provided by magician.
Doo, doo, doo, Lookin' out my back door.

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band.
Won't you take a ride on the flyin' spoon?
Doo, doo doo.
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo, Lookin' out my back door.

Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy!
Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn.
Bother me tomorrow, today, I'll buy no sorrows.
Doo, doo, doo, Lookin' out my back door.

Lyrics by John C. Fogerty.
Recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
