Cue Sheet
 

OPENER    Basic

I knew the stakes were high right from the start
Do an allemande left your corner and you do-si-do
Men star by the left
Turn your partner by the right, left allemande
Swing your own promenade
This is where the cowboy rides away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around do-si-do
Swing thru and then boys run you ferris wheel
The right and left thru
Slide thru and square thru two hands around
Swing your corner promenade
This is where the cowboy rides away


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
My heart is sinking like the setting sun
Setting on the things I wish I'd done

Circle left
It's time to say goodbye to yesterday
Allemande left and promenade
This is where the cowboy rides away

The Cowboy Rides Away

I knew the stakes were high right from the start,
When she dealt the cards, I bet my heart.
Now I just found a game that I can't play,
And this is where the cowboy rides away.

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun;
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
It's time to say goodbye to yesterday.
This is where the cowboy rides away.

We've been in and out of love, and in-between,
And now we play the final showdown scene.
And as the credits roll, a sad song starts to play:
This is where the cowboy rides away.

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun;
Setting on the things I wish I'd done.
Oh, the last goodbye's the hardest one to say:
This is where the cowboy rides away.

Oh, the last goodbye's the hardest one to say:
This is where the cowboy rides away.

Lyrics by Sonny Throckmorton and Casey Kelly.
Recorded by George Strait.
