Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

All four boys promenade, one time inside the ring
Get back home and swing that lady, everybody swing
Join up hands and circle, to the left go walking round
Allemande left that corner girl, then weave around that town
Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All four ladies chain about 3/4 round the ring
Head two couples promenade halfway around I sing
Walk in and pass the ocean, extend it go
Swing thru it's two by two and spin the top you know
Big boss man
Slide thru
Allemande left and promenade
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Gonna find a brand new boss man, one that'll treat me right
Work hard in the day time, rest easy at night

Allemande left your corner, dosado your own
Allemande left that corner girl and weave around you're gone
Big boss man
Can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all


TAG

Well, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Big Boss Man
 
 

Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Oh, you ain't so big
You're just tall, that's all

You got me working, boss man
Working 'round the clock
I want me a drink of water
You won't let me stop
You big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Gonna get myself a boss man
One gonna treat me right
Work me hard in the day time
But I'll sure rest easy at night
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Lyrics by Al Smith and Luther Dixon.
Recorded by Elvis Presley; Jerry Reed; Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; others.
