Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*As I was motivatin' over the hill, I saw Maybellene in a Coupe deVille
A Cadillac a-rollin' on the open road, nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford
The Cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five, she's bumper to bumper rollin' side by side

Left allemande, back to your own right & left grand
Maybellene, why can't you be true? Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Swing, promenade
You've started back doing the things you used to do
You've started back doing the things you used to do


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* The Cadillac pulled up ahead of the Ford, the Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It then got cloudy and it started to rain, I tooted my horn for a passin' lane
The rain water blowin' all under my hood, I knew that was doin' my motor good


*The motor cooled down, the heat went down, and that's when I heard that highway sound
The Cadillac a-sittin' like a ton of lead, a hundred and ten, a half a mile ahead
The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still, and I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru you go four hands and go
Dosado, step to a wave
Swing thru, boys run
Bend the line, right & left thru
Flutter wheel go across, slide thru
Swing the girl and promenade you do
You've started back doing the things you used to do
You've started back doing the things you used to do


TAG

You've started back doing the things you used to do

Maybellene Lyrics ID: 2082

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

As I was motorvatin' over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville
A Cadillac a-rollin' on the open road
Nothin' will outrun my V8 Ford
The Cadillac doin' about ninety-five
She's bumper to bumper, rollin' side to side

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

The Cadillac pulled up to a hundred and four
The Ford got hot and wouldn't do no more
It done got cloudy and started to rain
I tooted my horn for the passin' lane
The rainwater blowin' all under my hood
I know that I was doin' my motor good

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

The motor cooled down, the heat went down
And that's when I heard that highway sound
The Cadillac sittin' like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten a half a mile ahead
The Cadillac lookin' like it's sittin' still
And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin' the things you used to do

Lyrics by Chuck Berry.
