OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I was passing by the Winfield Hotel one Saturday night
Ringin' that ol go to meetin' bell
When my ears picked up what sounded like the makin's of a fight
Comin' from the bar in the hotel

Heads face grand square
Just about that time the door swung wide and soaked in beer and sweat
A dozen lumber jacks came out to play
I was somewhere near the age of 10 but I did not forget
Those words I heard big Sherman Becker say

Allemande left, weave
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a grizzly to its knees
, promenade
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides (Heads) promenade halfway around the ring
Heads (Sides) right & left thru, you turn your girl
Sides (Heads) square thru four hands around you go
Eight chain 4
Swing number five then promenade
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I was driven' truck and haulin' gravel down to Pea Haul's place
At seventeen I was some kind of sight
But Raymond Fenwick never should have called me baby face
I spoke these words then I turned out his lights

Allemande left, weave
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a Grizzly to its knees, promenade
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me


CLOSER    Mainstream

Heads face, grand square
I was twenty one and Betty Hanson was my favorite queen
I looked at her with eyes that did adore
We were dancin' when some loud mouth started sayin' things obscene
I warned him once and laid him on the floor

Allemande left, weave
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a Grizzly to its knees

Swing and promenade
Hold my coat, gimme a rock, I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me

Jacket River  (1979)

I was passin' by the Winfield Hotel one Saturday night
Ringin' that ol' go-to-meetin' bell
When my ears picked up what sounded like the makin's of a fight
Comin' from the bar in the hotel

Just about that time the door swung wide and soaked in beer and sweat
A dozen lumberjacks came out to play
I was somewhere round the age of ten but I did not forget
Those words I heard big Sherman Becker say:

Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a grizzly to its knees
Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me

I was drivin' truck and haulin' gravel down to Pea Haul's place
At seventeen I was some kind of sight
But Raymond Fenwick never should have called me "baby face"
I spoke these words, then I turned out his lights

Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a grizzly to its knees
Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me

I was twenty-one and Betty Hanson was my favorite queen
I looked at her with eyes that did adore
We were dancin' when some loudmouth started sayin' things obscene
I warned him once, then laid him on the floor

Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
I can bring a grizzly to its knees
Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me

Hold my coat. Gimme a rock. I'm from Jacket River
That rough and rowdy life was made for me
