Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I wanna thank you world for letting me belong
I'm just a part of one small group that sings your songs

Men star right, one time around
Allemande left that corner and weave the ring
I've always done my part the very best I could
Swing your girl and promenade her home
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for letting me contribute to the cause


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway around the ring
Walk into the middle, square thru four hands I sing
Four hands and then swing thru the outside two
Spin the top, boys move up go right & left thru
Slide thru, pass thru, trade by and swing
Swing your girl and promenade her home
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for letting me contribute to the cause


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I may never stand like Stonewall Jackson stood
But standing on this stage is just as good

Men star right one time around
Allemande left that corner and weave the ring
Oh, for the part I sing is truly a part of me
Swing your girl and promenade her home
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for letting me contribute to the cause

Thank You World
 
 

I wanna thank you, world, for lettin' me belong
I'm just 1/4 of one small group that sings your songs
I know that there are others who have served in bigger ways
All I can do is sing your music all my days

It makes me grateful just to know, to know that I can be
Unique and fill a spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause

I may not ever stand like Stonewall Jackson stood
But standin' on that stage to me is just as good
Now I may never be a heavy or a break
But you've given me the strength, the strength to pull my way

Oh for the part I sing is truly part of me
And it does its part to lock the other parts in key
And it does its part to cool, cool that sweet-a pose
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Oh world, you've given me a place that I call mine
Though I've stepped out of it and I've gotten out of line
Sometimes I sing the music slightly out of key
And I know I make it harder for the other three

I've always done my part the very best I could
And it's done the other guys a world of good
You've let me sing your praises, world, and about your faults
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause

It makes me grateful just to know, to know that I can be
Unique and fill a spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause
Thank you, world, for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Lyrics by Don Reid and Lew DeWitt.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
