Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I've seen the Joshua tree, got down on my knees
Threw the Virgin Mother a prayer

Walk around the corner, see saw your own
Allemande left and weave
Hey... what can I say
Swing a little girl and promenade
Hey...what can I say
I'm just a desperate man


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Move in and square thru 4
Pass the ocean, explode the wave
Trade by, touch 1/4
Follow your neighbor and half spread
Swing and promenade
Hey...what can I say
I'm just a desperate man


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade, run back and swing
Join hands, circle left
Allemande left, turn your partner by the right
Allemande left and weave
Hey... what can I say
Swing a little girl and promenade
Hey...what can I say
I'm just a desperate man

Desperate Man
 
 

I've seen the Joshua Tree
Got down on my knees
Threw the Virgin Mother a prayer
I've walked glass barefooted
Strolled 'cross the devil's hot coal
I've tried everything, I swear

Oh but hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
I said hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

Fortuneteller told me
"No more last chances
You got no future at all"
Oh but I ain't listenin'
To black-hearted gypsy
Nailed a crucifix to a different wall

Hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
I said hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

Yeah, I'm a half-cock, full-tilt
Scarred-hands-to-the-hilt
Don't-push-me, grown-ass man
Yeah, flashin' light, caution
Careful where ya cross, son
'Til she comes back again

Yeah hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
Oh hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

Oh hey, I said hey
Woah, what can I say? I'm a desperate man
Oh hey, I said hey
I'm just a desperate man
Grown-ass man

Lyrics by Ray Wylie Hubbard and Eric Church.
Recorded by Eric Church.
