Jim Duncan
Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
He came home to Tennessee
Young man at the end of '45
The only one of 7 men in his platoon
That made it back alive

Allemande left and weave
He must have seen some tough things
But he never said too much about all that
Put his pictures and memories in a cedar chest
Everything but his old army hat


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Sides square thru, 4 hands around and then
Pass thru, partner trade
Eight chain six
Now we used to laugh at Grandpa like he was some old relic from the past
Swing, promenade
Cause he never left the house 'less he was wearing
That funny looking worn out army hat


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Sides square thru, 4 hands around and then
Pass thru, partner trade
Eight chain six
He called me up one morning and said he saw it on TV
Swing, promenade
They have opened up a monument to WWII
Up there in Washington DC


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Every eye was on him
Anytime he went anywhere
They whispered and they pointed
But you could tell my Grandpa didn't care

Allemande left and weave
I ain't wearing this for them, he'd say
"It's a whole lot more than that"
For my buddies who gave everything
The least that I can do is keep on wearing this old army hat


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides promenade halfway
Heads square thru, 4 hands around and then
Pass thru, partner trade
Eight chain six
Two strangers both salute as Grandpa went to the monument
Swing, promenade
One said, "Thank you soldier for a job well done"
The other soldier just said, "Amen"


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides promenade halfway
Heads square thru, 4 hands around and then
Pass thru, partner trade
Eight chain six
A young boy said "Sir, my daddy went to war and didn't make it back
Swing, promenade
Could you take a picture here beside me
And maybe let me wear your army hat


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Every eye was on him
There was not a dry eye in the crowd
They whispered and they pointed
As my grandpa stood up extra tall and proud

Allemande left and weave
He said "Son, just keep it"
When the young boy tried to give at back
"You're a brave little soldier
And every soldier needs an authentic Army hat"


TAG

Four ladies chain over and back
For your daddy who gave everything, the least that I could do
Is pass on this old worn out army hat

Old Army Hat
 
 

He came home to Tennessee
A young man at the end of '45
Only one of seven men in his platoon
That made it back alive

He must've seen some tough times
But he never talked too much about all that
Put his pictures and his memories in the cedar chest
Everything but his old army hat

By the time I graduated
The winds of change had blown across our land
They were burning flags and draft cards
When they bothered to take some kind of stand

And we used to laugh at grandpa
Like he was some old relic from the past
'Cause he never left the house 'less he was wearing
That funny-looking worn out army hat

Every eye was on him
Anytime that he went anywhere
They whispered and they pointed
But you could tell that grandpa didn't care

"I ain't wearing this for them", he said
"It's a whole lot more than that
For my buddies who gave everything, the least that I can do
Is keep on wearing this old army hat"

He called me up one morning
Said he'd seen it on the news on his TV
"They've opened up a monument to World War II
In Washington, DC"

"I ain't getting any younger
And I wish someone would take me to see that"
I couldn't help but think they're gonna laugh at you up there
If you show up in that silly army hat

Two strangers, both saluted
As grandpa walked up to the monument
One said, "Thank you soldier, for a job well done"
The other said, "Amen"

And a young boy said
"Sir, my daddy went to war and never make it back
Would you take a picture standing here beside me
And maybe let me wear your army hat"

Every eye was on him
And there was not a dry one in the crowd
They whispered and they pointed
And grandpa stood up extra tall and proud

He said, "Son, just keep it"
When the young boy tried his best to give it back
"You're a brave little soldier, son and every soldier needs
His very own authentic army hat"

"For your daddy who gave everything the least that I can do
Is pass on this old worn out army hat"

Lyrics by Bill Anderson and Walt Aldridge.
