Circle left
Well I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
The men star right go one time around and then
Left allemande and weave
Clayton made a big impression on me
Dosado with the lady, promenade

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands and honey
Dosado, well look her in the eye, touch 1/4
Check an ocean wave, swing thru, around you do
Centers trade, boys run right
Square thru 3 hands around
You're gonna swing your lady, promenade

CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square

I remember the year that Clayton Delaney died
I remember that I went right out in the woods & I cried

Circle left
Well, Clayton made a big impression on me
Left allemande the corner lady, promenade

The Year That Clayton Delaney Died

I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died
They said for the last two weeks
That he suffered and cried
It made a big impression on me
Although I was a barefoot kid
They said he got religion at the end
And I'm glad that he did

Clayton was the best guitar picker
In our town
I thought he was a hero
And I used to follow Clayton around
I often wondered why Clayton
Who seemed so good to me
Never took his guitar
And made it down in Tennessee

Well daddy said he drank a lot
But I could never understand
I knew he used to pick up in Ohio
With a five piece band
Clayton used to tell me "son
You'd better put that ol' guitar away
There ain't no money in it
It will lead you to an early grave"

I guess if I'd admit it
Clayton taught me how to drink booze
I can see him half stoned
A-pickin' out the Lovesick Blues
When Clayton died I made him a promise
I was going to carry on somehow
I'd give a hundred dollars
If he could only see me now

I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died
Nobody ever knew it
But I went out in the woods and I cried
While I know there's a lot of big preachers
That know a lot more than I do
It could be that the good Lord
Likes a little pickin' too

Yeah I remember the year
that Clayton Delaney died
