Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
*Workin' on a building, workin' in a mine
Workin' on a railroad up and down the line

Men star by the right, one time here we go
You find the corner, allemande left and weave it you go
**I've got two hands and a back that's strong
Put 'em in a rhythm, sing a workin' man's song
I've been workin' since the dawn of time
Anybody workin' is a friend of mine


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Kiss my woman goodbye, I'll be leavin' soon
Workin' at a square dance to those fiddle tunes


**Workin' on a big rig, hands on the wheel
Loadin' up the trailer with three tons of steel


*Savin' up for college, or a rainy day
Raisin' up the children, keep a workin' a way


**Doin' what I can to keep the wolf from the door
Workin' like my father and his father before


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, go half around the ring
Down the middle, pass the ocean, and then extend
Swing thru and don't stop, spin that ol' top
Move up and right & left thru there pop
You flutter wheel and when you're there
Boys walk across, swing the girl and promenade
I've been workin' since the dawn of time
Anybody workin' is a friend of mine

Workin' Lyrics ID: 3117

Workin on a building, workin in a mine
Workin on a railroad up and down the line
Workin on a river, workin on a boat

Workin on a log jam, anything that floats
Workin in the kitchen choppin with a knife
I been washin dishes all of my life
Workin in the morning, in the afternoon
Bringin in the harvest underneath the moon

I got two hands and a back that's strong
Put em in a rhythm, sing a workin man song
I been workin since the dawn of time
Anyone workin is a friend of mine

Workin with a hammer, workin with a saw
Workin in a library reading the law
Workin with paper, brushes and pens
Finish up a job then startin again
Kiss my woman goodbye, I'll be leavin soon
Workin at a square dance playin fiddle tunes
Workin on a big rig, hands on the wheel
Loadin up a trailer with three tons of steel

I got two hands and a back that's strong
Put em in a rhythm, sing a workin man song
I been workin since the dawn of time
Anybody workin is a friend of mine

Workin on a scaffold, workin on a ledge
Got a rope around me now to keep from fallin off the edge
Workin in the garden trimmin up the trees
Hoein up the rows, pullin up the weeds
Workin in a schoolhouse, workin on the news
Workin in a honky tonk playin the blues
Workin in a hospital fillin out forms
Settin broken bones, helpin babies be born

I got two hands and a back that's strong
Put em in a rhythm, sing a workin man song
I been workin since the dawn of time
Anybody workin is a friend of mine

Lookin in the mirror, wrinkles on my face
That's the price I pay for runnin this race
Savin up my wages put em in the bank
Payin on the mortgage, fillin my tank
Savin up for college, for a rainy day
Raisin up the chillen keep a workin a way
Doin what I can to keep the wolf from the door
Workin like my father and his father before

I got two hands and a back that's strong
Put em in a rhythm, sing a workin man song
I been workin since the dawn of time
Anybody workin is a friend of mine

Anybody workin is a friend of mine

Lyrics by Tim O'Brien.
