OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
A good man is hard to find
You always seem to get another kind

Left allemande your corner, dosado with your own
Left allemande and weave that ring
Hug him in the morning; kiss him at night
Give him plenty of love; treat your good man right
Because a good man nowadays is
Hard to find


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads flutter wheel on around you do
Square thru four hands there too
Meet the sides touch 1/4, walk & dodge
Partner trade, slide thru
Square thru 3 hands around, your corner swing
Swing your corner, promenade the ring
Because a good man nowadays is
Hard to find

A Good Man Is Hard To Find Lyrics ID: 982

My heart's sad and I am all forlorn
My man's treating me mean,
I regret the day that I was born
And that man of mine I've ever seen
My happiness it never lasts a day
My heart is almost breaking while I say:

CHORUS:
A good man is hard to find
You always get the other kind
Just when you think that he is your pal
You look for him and find him fooling 'round some other gal.
Then you rave, you even crave
To see him laying in his grave,
So if your man is nice take my advice and hug him in the morning,
Kiss him ev'ry night
Give him plenty of lovin', treat him right,
For a good man nowadays is hard to find.

VERSE 2:
Yesterday my heart from care was free
I sang all through the day,
Now the blues have overtaken me
Since my lovin' man has gone away
I tried my best to treat him nice and kind,
But now these words are running through my mind:

CHORUS:
A good man is hard to find
You always get the other kind
Just when you think that he is your pal,
You look for him and find him fooling 'round some other gal.
Then you rave, you even crave
To see him laying in his grave,
So if your man is nice take my advice and hug him in the morning,
Kiss him ev'ry night
Give him plenty of lovin', treat him right,
For a good man nowadays is hard to find.

Lyrics by Eddie Green.
Recorded by Marion Harris (1919); Bessie Smith (1927).
