Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
* I look a little rough and I've got few miles...
On me
My body needs work; my style...
Ain't what it used to be

Four ladies promenade go round the ring
Swing your man, promenade I sing
I may be used but baby, I'm not...
Used up


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* I may not be rich and own a big Cadillac
But I've got a lot of homegrown friends and you know they watch my back


* What I used to do all day takes all day to do
That's if I can remember long enough to remember what I was trying to do


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway round
Side (head) two go right & left thru now
Same two square thru four hands around you go
Eight chain four
Four hands across find the corner right there
Swing that girl and promenade the square
I may be used but baby, I'm not...
Used up


TAG

Swing the girl at home
I may used but baby I'm not used up

I May Be Used (But Baby I Ain't Used Up)
 
 

Well my baby you're a looker and I know what you're looking for
You've been looking over every man at the bar
Honey, I know I've got a few years on you
But if you're shopping around, let me tell you a thing or two

Well I look a little rough and I got a few miles on me
My body needs work and my style ain't what it used to be
And honey I'll admit there's places where I'm wearing thin
But I ain't broke down, I just couldn't hold it in

Well I may be worn, but baby I ain't worn out
Let me take you for a ride and I'll show you what I'm talking about
I guarantee, there's a lot of me left to love
Well I may be used, but baby I ain't used up

I've been wrecked a few times and honey it shows, I guess
There's been once or twice that you could say that I was repossessed
There's one little thing that I think ought to be understood
It ain't how you look, it's what you got under your hood

Well I may be worn, but baby I ain't worn out
Let me take you for a ride and I'll show you what I'm talking about
I guarantee, there's a lot of me left to love
Well I may be used, but baby I ain't used up

Lyrics by Bob McDill.
Recorded by Waylon Jennings.
