Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Those hard working callers, driving day and night
Have got to call a square dance or two
Driving down the highway, living out on the road
Is not a job just anyone can do

Allemande and weave
He may be gone three days, or maybe two weeks
Swing the girl, promenade
She pays the bills, goes shopping, feeds the kids what they like
The girl behind the man, behind the mike


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Those heads promenade go halfway around
Walk in and square thru to four now
Go all the way around and a right & left thru
Veer left, ferris wheel
Centers sweep 1/4, lead right
Swing the corner, promenade
Does the bills, cuts the grass, feeds the kids what they like
The gal behind the man, behind the mike


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
This special breed of woman has to share a love affair
With callers and choreo on his mind
She knows that he loves her more than anything
She's a callers wife, and that's the greatest kind

Allemande and weave
She answers his phone, keeps his calendar just right
Swing your girl around and promenade
Cuts the grass, pays the bills, feeds the kids what they like
She's the gal behind the man, behind the mike


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
And as he sips his coffee, you can bet she's on his mind
When he's driving down the highway headed home
Sleeping sure gets lonely in those motels every night
Compared to being in her arms at home

Allemande and weave
He may be gone three days - or maybe two weeks
Swing your girl around and promenade
She pays the bills, goes shopping, feeds the kids what they like
The gal behind the man, behind the mike


TAG

God Bless the gal behind the man, behind the mike!

Woman Behind The Man Behind The Wheel
 
 

Those hard driving truckers, gear jamming day and night
Have got a real tough job to stand up to
Highballing down the highway, in a big long diesel rig
Is not a job just anyone can do

But there's a lot of credit due to a fine group of girls
They're the trucker's wives who wait for their men
When they kiss them goodbye and watch the tail-lights fade
It's a lonely wait until they're home again

He may be gone three days, or maybe two weeks
And everything is left in her care
Like paying bills and cutting grass and fixing kids their meals
She's the woman behind the man behind the wheel

This special breed of woman has to share a love affair
With that long stretch of highway on his mind
But she knows that he loves her more than anything
She's a truckers wife and that's the greatest kind

And as he sips his coffee you can bet she's on his mind
When he's driving down that highway all alone
And that sleeper sure gets lonely parked at a big truck stop
Compared to being in her arms at home

Now we've sung songs and praises about the trucking man
And they're true but let's save one little spiel
For all the truckers wives because, after all
She's the woman behind the man behind the wheel

She's the woman behind the man behind the wheel
