OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies promenade go once inside the ring
Back out swing that man around
Join your hands, circle left go walkin' around the ring
Do an allemande left, weave the ring
Gloom, despair and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair and agony on me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle and get to 4 you know
Out to the corner girl, a right & left thru and turn 'em go
You veer to the left and then couples circulate and then
Ladies chain down the line, and say whoa-o-o-o-o-o
You roll away a half sashay, then star thru
Trade by, swing the corner, promenade her, too
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair and agony on me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I knew a gal who lived high up on a hill
Every Friday night she'd give my heart a thrill
One night I came a-callin', I ran down the hill a-bawlin'
Cause she'd run off with some old fart (guy) named Bill

Allemande left and weave
Gloom, despair and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair and agony on me

Gloom, Despair And Agony On Me
 
 

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

I stand 6 foot 8 when I'm completely unfurled
And to find a mate I've looked all over this world
Then a store downtown advertised everything for us tall guys
And they had everything except tall girls

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

I knew a gal who lived high up on a hill
Every Friday night, she'd give my heart a thrill
One night I came a-callin', I ran down the hill a-bawlin'
Cause she'd run off with some old fart named Bill

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

We figured she was rich, loaded to the hilt
And we figured she had class like the Vanderbilts
'Cause we had heard for years how she was so well reared
How was we to know they meant the way she was built

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Lyrics by Bernie Brillstein, Frank Peppiatt and John Aylesworth.
Recorded by Buck Owens and Roy Clark.
