Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year off the folks on insurance plan

Allemande and weave
**He's got a big long Mercedes Benz
And he feels real sorry for me
I'm the black sheep of the family


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade 1/2 way
Walk in and square thru 4
Right & left thru, veer left, circulate
Half tag, scoot back two times
Swing your corner girl and all promenade
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back


**And I tell her what my papa said to my mama when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray


*Little sister married a banker, yeah he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny lookin' little dog


**They like to get together and talk a lot
But they never mention me
I'm the black sheep of the family

Black Sheep
 
 

My daddy was a brakeman on a highball traveling train
Mama she raised four little children and the family had a good name
And papa and mama wanted all for us they never had
Big brother, little brother, sister too, none of them turned out half bad
'Cept me I'm the black sheep of the family

Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year off the folks own insurance plan
He's got a big long Mercedes Benz and a house overlooking the town
He sits in his Jacuzzi and he watches the sun go down
And he feels real sorry for me I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray

Little sister married a banker, yeah he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny lookin' little dog
He buys her big rings and diamonds and a brand new Japanese yacht
They like to get together and talk about all the things they've got
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs, and teach my children to pray

I'm sayin' woman, wake me up early, be good to my dogs
And teach my children to pray

Lyrics by Danny Darst and Robert Altman.
Recorded by John Anderson.
