Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Sixty-six was still a narrow two-lane highway
Harry Truman was the man who ran the show
The bad Korean war was just beginning
And I was just nine years too young to go

Allemande left and weave
Country Music hadn't gone to New York City yet
And a service man was proud of what he'd done
Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox
That's the way it was in fifty one


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) men reach in reverse that flutter wheel now
Keep that girl and promenade outside halfway
Lead to the right and then you dosado her
Touch 1/4, scoot back I say
Boys fold and the girls turn thru
Star thru and promenade her home
Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox
That's the way it was in fifty one


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
There's so much about the good old days I could tell
And there's folks around I know still remember well
Slow dancin' close together when a ballad played
'Cause a thing called Rock and Roll was yet to come

Allemande left and weave
Country Music hadn't gone to New York City yet
And a service man was proud of what he'd done
It was a big year for a drive-in restaurant car hop
That's the way it was in fifty one


TAG

It was a big year for a drive-in rest'rant car hop
Oh that's the way it was in fifty one

The Way It Was In '51
 
 

Sixty-Six was still a narrow two-lane highway
Harry Truman was the man who ran the show
The bad Korean war was just beginning
And I was just three years too young to go

Country music hadn't gone to New York City yet
And a service man was proud of what he'd done
And Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox
That's the way it was in '51

There's so much about the good old days I'd love to tell
And there's folks around I know, still remember well
Slow dancin' close together when a ballad played
'Cause a thing called 'Rock and Roll' was yet to come
It was a big year for a drive-in rest'rant carhop
That's the way it was in '51

There's so much about the good old days I'd love to tell
And there's folks around I know, still remember well
Slow dancin' close together when a ballad played
'Cause a thing called 'Rock and Roll' was yet to come
A big year for a drive-in rest'rant carhop
That's the way it was in '51

Yeah, Hank and Lefty crowded every jukebox
Oh Lord, that's the way it was in '51

Lyrics by Merle Haggard.
