Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Tonight I am aching, my body is shaking
Tonight Carmen's coming back home
Tonight there'll be no room for tears in my bedroom
Tonight Carmen's...
(Allemande left and weave)
**Tonight as I stand here, I notice my hand here
Is trembling like never before
How can I hide it, how can I deny it
Tonight Carmen's coming back home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The lips that have kissed, that loved her and missed her
Are lips that now curse her at night
In anguish and torment, I cursed as the night went
From darkness to dawn
(Allemande left and weave)
**I've thought of just taking these two hands and breaking
The body I've waited to touch


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade travel halfway around
Down the middle and do the right & left thru
Now the sides square thru, four hands around you do
Make a right hand star with the outside two
The sides star left inside around the set then
Swing the corner girl and you promenade
How can I hide it, how can I deny it
Tonight Carmen's coming back home

 
Lyrics

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Dusty old Juarez on the old Rio Grande
It sure is handy when you need a friend
I don't belong here, your dark eyes keep warning
I'll leave in the morning but for now please let me in.

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Crossing over the border, stepping over the line
Drunk on yesterday's wine and still feeling the flame
The guitars keep playing a song that I've never heard
Without saying a word, you keep calling out my name.

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Lyrics by Steve Spurgin.
Recorded by Gene Watson.
