Cue Sheet


Circle left
*I've been workin' in the city, where I've earned my first pay
Thought that when I came here, it's where I'd like to stay

Men star right, one time around
Left allemande and weave around the town
This city life ain't no place for a country boy like me
You can't watch the river flow or see the tallest tree
I miss that old home cookin' and walks down by the sea
This city sure ain't no place for a country boy like me


*When I was young I couldn't wait to ride on that freight train
For I knew that it would take me all the way to Caralayne

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru four hands you go
Dosado the corner, once around you go
Swing thru and then, boys run to the right
Ferris wheel, do the right & left thru
Half sashay, U-Turn back, that corner swing
Swing that girl and promenade the ring
I miss that old home cookin' and walks down by the sea
This city sure ain't no place for a country boy like me
