OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain now go across the ring
You rollaway, circle to the left go round I sing
Four ladies rollaway, you circle left I say
Left allemande then you weave the ring
Hey there's a green light, you're free to go
Swing your partner, promenade you know
Here's your coat and there's your shoes, and don't forget your blues
Your own canoe now, you'll have to row


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head (side) couples square thru four hands and go
Going to meet your corner with a dosado
You do a curlique and then, scoot back and then
The boys fold and two ladies chain
You send them back dixie style, make that wave
You slip the clutch, left allemande and promenade
Hey there's a smile upon your face while another takes my place
And now at last dear, the truth I've found

Green Light

I turned your whole card upside down
I caught you cheatin' and runnin' around
There's a smile upon your face while another takes my place
And now at last, dear, the truth I'd found

Babe, there's the green light, you're free to go
You take the high road, I'll take the low
Here's your coat and shoes and don't forget your blues
Your own canoe now you'll have to row

Babe, there's the green light, shift your gears
I know you fooled me for all these years
I'll hold my head up high, and I'll forget you by and by
And there'll be laughter instead of tears

Babe, there's the green light, kick up your heels
There'll come a day you'll know how it feels
To have your aces trumped and be taken for a chump
Now there's the green light, so spin your wheels

Lyrics by Hank Thompson.
Recorded by Hank Thompson.
