Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be

Allemande the corner girl do a dosado
Allemande your corner and weave the ring
And I'll be working long as these two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern and
Sing a little bit of these working man blues


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru
Right & left thru
Swing thru, boy run right
Half tag, scoot back
Boy run around the girl
Square thru 3
Boy run right
Swing the corner and all promenade
I have a little fun in the evenin'
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Workin' Man Blues Lyrics ID: 3384

It's a big job just gettin' by with nine kids and a wife
But I been a workin' man dang near all my life
And I'll keep on working long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

I keep my nose on the grindstone, work hard every day
I might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay
But I'll go back workin', come Monday morning I'm right back with the crew
I'll drink a little beer that evening
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin' around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But I'll go back working, I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Here comes that working man!

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare, 'n' that's one place I won't be
Cause I'll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Yeah, drink a little beer in a tavern
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Lyrics by Merle Haggard.
