OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Last night at the dance hall I was feelin' just right
No more pretty women gonna mess with my life

Left allemande and do a dosado
Left allemande and then you weave that ole ring
Mercy on me
Swing that girl around and promenade you see
You walked in looking good as could be
Whoo, have mercy on me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) touch 1/4, then the boys run right
Star thru, go forward up & back tonight, pass thru
Wheel and deal, a double pass thru
First go left, next go right and then
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 around
Left allemande, come back and promenade on down
You walked in looking good as could be
Whoo, have mercy on me


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I went to the bank with my little checkbook
The cashier he gave me the strangest look
He said you ain't got no money cause you're overdrawn
Your woman done took it and she's long gone

4 ladies promenade inside that ole ring
Swing your man around and promenade 'em you see
You walked in looking good as could be
Whoo, have mercy on me

Whoo, have mercy on me
Lyrics

I was standing in line at the city bus stop
Soaked to the skin from ev'ry raindrop
I see you driving by just like a phantom jet
With your arm around some little brunette

You say you won't be home because you're working late
Honey, I'm no fool, you've been out on a date
The lipstick on your collar gives your game away
It's strawberry red and mine's pink rosé

Have mercy on me
You treat me so bad I'm in misery
It's breaking my heart, can't you see
Baby, baby have mercy on me

Well I called you up on the telephone
I could hear you was playin' Haggard and Jones
I knew right then that there was something wrong
There's only one reason you play cheatin' songs

Have mercy on me
You treat me so bad I'm in misery
It's breaking my heart, can't you see
Baby, baby have mercy on me

Well, I went to the bank with my little checkbook
The cashier he gave me the strangest look
He said you ain't got no money 'cause you're overdrawn
Your man took it all and he's done gone

Have mercy on me
You treat me so bad I'm in misery
It's breaking my heart, can't you see
Baby, baby have mercy on me

Have mercy on me
You treat me so bad I'm in misery
It's breaking my heart, can't you see
Baby, baby have mercy on me

Have mercy on me
You treat me so bad I'm in misery
It's breaking my heart, can't you see
Baby, baby have mercy on me

Lyrics by Paul Kennerley.
Recorded by The Judds.
