Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, I just got out of the county prison
Doin' 90 days for non-support
I tried to find me an executive position
But no matter how smooth I talked

4 ladies chain across
Chain them back to home and promenade
I got them steadily depressing, low-down,
Mind-messing, working at the carwash blues


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, count to 4 you know
With the outsides do the right & left thru
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Dixie style make a wave, take a peek and trade the wave
Swing the corner lady, promenade
I got them steadily depressing, low-down,
Mind-messing, working at the carwash blues


TAG

Allemande left, come back, swing your own
I got them working at the carwash blues

Workin' At The Car Wash Blues Lyrics ID: 1749

Well, I had just got out from the county prison
Doin' ninety days for non-support
Tried to find me an executive position
But no matter how smooth I talked
They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius
The man say, "We got all that we can use"
Now I got them steadily depressin', low down, mind messin'
Workin' at the car wash blues

Well, I should be sittin' in an air-conditioned office in a swivel chair
Talkin' some trash to the secretaries
Sayin', "Here, now, mamma, come on over here"
Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
And walkin' home in soggy old shoes
With them steadily depressin', low down, mind messin'
Workin' at the car wash blues

You know a man of my ability
He should be smokin' on a big cigar
But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait
In my rubber suit a-rubbin' these cars

Well, all I can do is a-shake my head
You might not believe that it's true
For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes
So baby, don't expect to see me
With no double martini in any high-brow society news
'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down, mind messin'
Workin' at the car wash blues

So baby, don't expect to see me
With no double martini in any high-brow society news
'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down, mind messin'
Workin' at the car wash blues

Yeah, I got them steadily depressin', low down, mind messin'
Workin' at the car wash blues

Lyrics by James Croce.
Recorded by Jim Croce.
