OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I'm tired of living in this one horse town
I went to the station to flag that Hummingbird down

Allemande the corner of the hall, do a dosado
Allemande the corner of the hall
Weave around the ring
Now I'm off to the city, gonna make my name
Swing a little girl take her by the hand and promenade
I'm gonna ride that Hummingbird


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm gonna make it now just any day
I've got this guitar and I came to play


*Oh, today she called me on the telephone
She said: "Hey country boy, you've been gone too long"


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade half-way
Down the middle pass the ocean
Extend
Girl trade, boy run,
Boy trade, couples trade
Tag the line all the way, face right
Bend the Line, slide thru
Swing your corner girl and promenade the ring
I'm gonna ride that Hummingbird


TAG

I had to ride that Hummingbird

Hummingbird
 
 

Got tired of living in that one horse town
I went to the station to flag that Hummingbird down
I didn't even call to say good-bye
I couldn't stand to see that little girl cry
Now I'm off to the city, gonna make my name
Those lights are calling me to fortune and fame

I had to ride that Hummingbird
I had to ride that Hummingbird

I'm gonna make it now just any day
I've got this guitar and I came to play
Lying here lonely, knowing what I've lost
My heart keeps asking: Was it worth the cost?
Now ain't it funny how it always seems
Once you're standing there the grass ain't so green

Why did I ride that Hummingbird?
I had to ride that Hummingbird

Oh, today she called me on the telephone
She said: Hey country boy, you've been gone too long
And now I'm standing at the station, looking down the line
Here comes that Hummingbird, she's right on time
(that's right)
I'm gonna ride that Hummingbird

Just let me ride that Hummingbird
We're gonna ride that Hummingbird
Just let me ride that Hummingbird

Lyrics by Greg Jennings and Tim Dubois.
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs; Restless Heart.
