OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I lay my head on the railroad track, waiting on the Double E.
But the train don't run through here no more, poor, poor pitiful me

Allemande left and weave
Poor, poor, pitiful me
Poor, poor, pitiful me
All these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, take it half you go
Sides (heads) do the right & left thru
Sides (heads) square thru go four hands round
Then do an eight chain 4
Poor, poor, pitiful me
Swing your corner promenade
All these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I met a man out in Hollywood, and I ain't namin' names
He really worked me over good, just like Jesse James

Allemande and weave
He really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender
Put me through some changes Lord
Sort-a like a Waring blender


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I met a boy in the Vieux-Carré, down in Yokohama
He picked me up, and he threw me down, saying "Please don't hurt me Mama"

Allemande and weave
Poor, poor, pitiful me
Poor, poor, pitiful me
All these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me

Woe, woe is me

Poor Poor Pitiful Me
 
 

Well I lay my head on the railroad track
Waiting on the Double E
But the train don't run by here no more
Poor, poor pitiful me

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
Oh, these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me
Woe, woe is me

Well, I met a man out in Hollywood
Now I ain't naming names
Well, he really worked me over good
Just like Jesse James
Yes, he really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender
Put me through some changes, Lord
Sort of like a Waring blender

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
Oh, these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me
Woe, woe is me

Well, I met a boy in the Vieux Carrés
Down in Yokohama
He picked me up and he threw me down
He said "Please don't hurt me Mama"

Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor pitiful me
Oh, these boys won't let me be
Lord, have mercy on me
Woe, woe is me

Poor, poor, poor me
Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor, poor me
Poor, poor pitiful me
Poor, poor, poor me
Poor, poor pitiful me

Lyrics by Warren Zevon.
Recorded by Warren Zevon; Linda Ronstadt.
