Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Life's like a road you travel on
One day here, the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind

Left allemande you know, come back a dosado
Left allemande, weave the ring
Yeah, life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long

Swing and ya promenade
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade and go 'bout halfway round you know
Walk in and square thru, get four hands in the middle you do
All the way around the ring, right & left thru I sing
Veer left and now ferris wheel, yeah
Square thru go now, 3/4 round
Swing the corner and ya promenade
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies chain about 3/4 around that ring I shout
Why don't you roll away, circle left around that way
We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left

Allemande left and weave
Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long

Swing and ya promenade
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long

Life Is A Highway
 
 

Whooo umm yeah...
Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There's a world outside ev'ry darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights
Knock me down and get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man

There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
(All night long)
Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long, mmmm...
If you're going my way (my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

There was a distance between you and I
(Between you and I)
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye
Ooooo...Yeah!

There ain't no load that I can't hold
A road so rough, this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
Well, I wanna ride it all night long (all night long)
Yeah, yeah
If you're going my way
Well, I wanna drive it all night long
Gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme - yeah!
Life is a highway (life is a highway)
I wanna ride it all night long (oooh, yeah)
If you're going my way (you're going my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)
Come on, gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
(Yeah I wanna drive it all night long, baby)
If you're going my way (you're going my way)
I wanna drive it all night long (all night long)

Lyrics by Tom Cochrane.
Recorded by Rascal Flatts.
