Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
There's a lonesome feeling that comes over me
When I hear that highway moan

Left allemande your corner, turn your partner right
Left allemande and weave let's go
I roam from town-to-town out on the interstate
Swing your lady round and promenade
I need my woman's love but she's so far away
I'm singing the cowboy blues


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and count 'em four hands you know
When you're there and now swing thru
Spin the top and do the right & left thru
Then touch 1/4 and the girls will run
Swing that corner lady around you know
You promenade around that old square
I'm shootin' for the heart, I'm looking in her eyes
I'm singing the cowboy blues


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time around
Get back and swing your man
Join hands and circle left go walkin' round that old ring

Cowboy Blues
 
 

Well there's a lonesome feelin' that comes over me
When I hear that highway moan
I know it's where the good Lord meant for me to be
A dreamin' drifter far from home

I roam from town to town out on the interstate
I'm always only passin' through
I need my woman's lovin' she's so far away
I'm singin' the cowboy blues

Stranger don't you know I'd like to be your friend
If I had the time to stay
But I'm a tumbleweed a blowin' in the wind
I've got to catch another stage

I strap on my guitar just like a .45
I pray each night my aim is true
I'm shootin' for the heart, a lookin' in your eyes
Singin' the cowboy blues

Sometimes I get to thinkin' 'bout settlin' down
Fade off into a memory
Every night that I step out to face the crowd
I know this is the life for me

I strap on my guitar just like a .45
I pray each night my aim is true
I'm shootin' for the heart, a lookin' in your eyes
I'm singin' the cowboy blues

Singin' the cowboy blues
Singin' the cowboy blues

Lyrics by Michael Clarence Geiger, Michael Penn Huffman and George Freeman McCorkle.
Recorded by Gary Allen.
