Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy roving cowboy

Men star right and roll it round that old ring
Allemande left, come back and box the gnat
Four ladies star by the left, it's once around you go
Come back, swing and you promenade
Herding the dark clouds out of the sky
Keeping the heavens blue


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I ain't got a wife to bother my life

*I ain't got a dime, I'm just spending my time


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads lead to the right, circle four around that track
Make lines, up to the middle and back
You pass the ocean, acey deucey
Do a linear cycle around the ring and go
You pass thru with a wheel & deal, centers wheel around
Look for the corner, swing and you promenade
**Let me make my bed where the varmints prowl
Beneath the sky of blue


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Let me ride that long trail down to the end
Where the skies are always blue

Happy Cowboy
 
 

Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy rovin' cowboy
Herdin' the dark clouds out of the sky
Keepin' the heavens blue.

Nowhere to go, nothing to do
I'm a happy roving cowboy
Let me ride that lone trail down to the end
Where the skies are always blue

Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy rovin' cowboy
Herdin' the dark clouds out of the sky
Keepin' the heavens blue.

I ain't got a wife to bother my life
I'm a happy rovin' cowboy
Let me make my bed where the varmints prowl
Beneath the skies of blue.

Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy rovin' cowboy
Herdin' the dark clouds out of the sky
Keepin' the heavens blue.

I ain't got a dime, just a-spendin' my time
I'm a happy rovin' cowboy
Let me sing my song till they call me home
To the land beyond the blue.

Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy rovin' cowboy
Herdin' the dark clouds out of the sky
Keepin' the heavens blue.

Hear my song as I ride along
I'm just a happy rovin' cowboy
Herdin' the dark clouds out of the sky
Keepin' the heavens blue.

Lyrics by Bob Nolan.
Recorded by Sons Of The Pioneers; many others.
