Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I was wearin' straight leg Levis
Flannel shirts even when they weren't in style

Allemande your corner and dosado her awhile
Allemande left and you weave the ring
I was listening to the Opry
When all of my friends
Were digging Rock n Roll and Rhythm and Blues
I was country when Country wasn't cool


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade half
Pass the ocean, extend
Recycle, reverse flutter wheel
Veer right, ferris wheel
Centers veer right, veer left
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Corner swing and promenade
I was country when Country wasn't cool


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Oh, I was country when Country wasn't cool
I was country from my hat down to my boots

Allemande left and weave
I still act and look the same
What you see ain't nothing new
I was country when country wasn't cool


TAG

Chain the ladies over and back
I was country when country wasn't cool

I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool Lyrics ID: 953

I remember wearin' straight-leg Levis,
Flannel shirts even when they weren't in style.
I remember singin' with Roy Rogers,
At the movies when the west was really wild.
And I was listenin' to the Opry,
When all of my friends
Were diggin' Rock 'n Roll and Rhythm & Blues.
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

I remember circlin' the drive-in,
Pullin' up and turnin' down George Jones.
I remember when no-one was lookin',
I was puttin' peanuts in my Coke.
I took a lot of kiddin',
'Cause I never did fit in.
Now look at everybody tryin' to be what I was then.
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Ooh, I was Country when Country wasn't cool.
I was Country, from my hat down to my boots.
I still act and look the same:
What you see ain't nothin' new.
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

They call us country bumpkins for stickin' to our roots.
I'm just glad we're in a country where we're all free to choose
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Hey, I was Country when Country wasn't cool.
Yeah, an' I was Country, from my hat down to, oh, my boots.
I still act and look the same:
What you see ain't nothin' new.
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Yeah, I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Lyrics by Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan.
Recorded by George Jones and Barbara Mandrell.
