Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
Well, early in the morning, alone at my place
Black coffee, dry toast, and egg on my face

Walk around your corner girl, seesaw your own
Well, do an allemande left your corner
Grand right and left you roam
Well, I give you all my love and all my money
Turn thru and allemande left and you promenade, honey
Don't hold a grudge, baby, carry a torch
Cause I'm a hard dog to keep under the porch


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Head (side) couples promenade 1/2 way around
You lead to the right and do a dosado
Swing thru, come down the way, then let the boys run right
Now ladies trade, you wheel & deal and box the gnat
You pull her by, a dopaso, her by the left, corner right
Go back to her with a left and roll promenade
Don't hold a grudge, baby, carry a torch
Cause I'm a hard dog to keep under the porch


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

4 ladies promenade, come on inside the ring
Back home and Swing your man, give that man a swing
Join hands, circle left, y'all get the beat
Do an allemande left your corner, grand right and left so neat
I give you all my love and all my money
Turn thru and allemande left and promenade your honey
Don't hold a grudge, baby, carry a torch
Cause I'm a hard dog to keep under the porch

You're A Hard Dog (To Keep Under the Porch) Lyrics ID: 2604

Early in the morning all alone in my place
Black coffee, dry toast and egg on my face
It's the very last time I wait up all night
I feel like a fool and you're proving me right

I give you my love, I give you my money
You got the feelings of a fencepost, honey
I can't hold a grudge, I just carry a torch
Cause you're a hard dog to keep under the porch

You're a hungry old hound that keeps coming around
Eatin' my groceries and drinking one down
You run with the pack and you come slinking back
Needin' some rest and me to scratch your back

Well, I love you baby, God knows I do
I have trouble smelling if I ain't with you
If it's true you can't teach an old dog new tricks
I've gotten myself in a heckuva fix

I'm sitting on the porch in the pale moonlight
I hear the dogs barking way off in the night
And the loudest one is my baby, of course
You're a hard dog to keep under the porch

You're a hungry old hound that keeps coming around
Eatin' my groceries and drinking one down
You run with the pack and you come slinking back
Needin' some rest and me to scratch your back

I give you my love, I give you my money
You got the feelings of a fencepost, honey
I can't hold a grudge, I just carry a torch
Cause you're a hard dog to keep under the porch

Lyrics by Susanna Clark and Harlan Howard.
Recorded by Gail Davies; Ruby Andrews.
