Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

*Circle left
**This old highway seems so lonely when goin' where you've been
And a lonesome song will make you cry time and time again

Left allemande the corner run home a dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
Ridin my thumb to Mexico
Dosado and then you promenade
I'll ride this thumb till I see her again
I'm ridin my thumb to Mexico


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru count 'em 4 hands you go
You meet the sides make a right hand star you know
Heads star left in the middle roll it one time and then
Do a right and left thru the outside two
Swing thru and then swing thru again
Swing the corner lady promenade
I'll ride this thumb till I see her again
I'm riding my thumb to Mexico


TAG

Well, I'm riding my thumb to Mexico

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The billboards on highways and the brake light on the cars
**Make me jump out on the highway with my bag and my guitar


*The reason why she left me is not the reason why I'm here
**I'm a travelin kind of man, I just need a change of atmosphere

Riding My Thumb To Mexico
 
 

This old highway seems so lonesome
When you're going where you've been
And a lonesome song can make you cry
Time and time again
If I had listened to a friend of mine ten
Years ago today, I'd have a better job
Than what I've got today

But the billboards on the highway and the
Brakelights on the cars
Make me jump out on the highway with my bag and my guitar
If she comes or if she goes it doesn't matter
Anymore cause I'm ridin' my thumb to Mexico

Ridin' my thumb to Mexico
It don't matter when or how I go
I'll ride this thumb til I see her again
So I'm ridin' my thumb to Mexico

Well, the reason why she left me's not the reason that I'm here;
I'm a travlin' kind of man, just need a change of atmosphere.
If there's any place I haven't been at all that's where I'll go
So I'm ridin' my thumb to Mexico

Ridin' my thumb to Mexico
It don't matter when or how I go
I'll ride this thumb til I see her again
So I'm ridin' my thumb to Mexico

Lyrics by Johnny Rodriguez.
