Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Diamonds on the windshield as heaven starts to cry
In his rear-view mirror, his angel waves goodbye
She know he's got to go; she knows he's one of them
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind

Four ladies promenade, now, one time go 'round
Swing your girl, boys, and promenade, go down
That Detroit diesel pirate ship is rollin' out again
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Now heads (sides) square thru, four hands around you go
Out to the corner girl, now, dosado
Swing thru, now, don't stop, spin the top
Boy move up, square thru 3/4, pop
When you're all facin' (lookin') out, chase right
Swing the corner girl around now you promenade tonight
*Carolina west to Denver, Baton Rouge east (up) to Pittsburg
Portland south to San Diego; sail on, sail on


ALTERNATE LYRICS (2nd and 4th repetitions)

*Tallahassee north to Boston, up to Bangor west to Austin
Coast to coast, sea to sea; sail on, sail on


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain, turn 'em with an arm around, now
Rollaway and then circle around
Roll her away and then circle the ring
Allemande that corner gal and you weave around the ring (I sing)
Another shot of truck stop coffee runnin' through his veins
Dosado and promenade her go 'round again
Headin' (sailin') for the settin' sun, freedom's your best friend
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind

Brothers Of The Highway
 
 

Diamonds on the windshield, as heaven starts to cry
In his rear view mirror, his angel waves goodbye
She knows he's gotta go, she knows he's one of them

Brothers of the highway, children of the wind
That Detroit diesel pirate ship goes blowing out again
Sailing for the setting sun, freedom's your best friend
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind

He puts the pedal to the metal, trying to outrun the rain
Another shot of truck stop coffee goes running through his veins
This country turns on eighteen wheels, thank God we can depend

On brothers of the highway, children of the wind
That Detroit diesel pirate ship goes rolling out again
Sailing for the setting sun, freedom's your best friend
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind

Carolina, west of Denver, Baton Rouge, east of Pittsburgh
North and south of San Diego, sail on, sail on
Tallahassee, north of Boston, up to Bangor, west of Austin
Coast to coast, sea to sea, sail on, sail on

Brothers of the highway, children of the wind
That Detroit diesel pirate ship goes blowing out again
Sailing for the setting sun, freedom's your best friend
Brothers of the highway, children of the wind
God bless you brothers of the highway, children of the wind

Lyrics by Doug Johnson, Nicole Witt and Kim Williams.
Recorded by George Strait.
