Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado round that corner, see saw round your taw
Then join your hands and circle to the left go round that hall
Do an allemande left that corner, grand old right & left
Meet pistol packin' mama and box the gnat like that
Then pull her by, do a U-turn back and give that gal a swing
Left allemande just once again and promenade that ring
Hey lay that pistol down, babe, lay that pistol down
And we'll have fun without that gun, so lay that pistol down


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the head 2 couples square thru 4 hands around you go
When you meet that corner lady you're gonna do a dosado
Then swing thru and don't stop, spin the top for me
Now slide thru and swing that corner lady go round you see
Do an allemande left new corner, come home do a dosado
Take pistol packin' mama and promenade you know
Hey lay that pistol down, babe, lay that pistol down
And we'll have fun without that gun, so lay that pistol down

Pistol Packing Mama
 
 

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, drinking beer in a cabaret
Was I having fun
Until one night she caught me right
And now I'm on the run

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, she kicked out my windshield
And she hit me over the head
She cussed and cried and said I lied
And she wished that I was dead

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, drinking beer in a cabaret
And dancin' with a blond
Until one night she shot out the light
Bang! that blond was gone

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, I'll sing you every night, babe
And I'll woo you every day
I'll be your regular daddy
If you'll put that gun away

Oh, lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Now I went home this morning
The clock was tickin' four
Gun in her hand, says "You're my man,
But I don't need you no more."

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Now there was old Al Dexter
He always had his fun
But with some lead, she shot him dead
His honkin' days are done.

Lay that pistol down, babe
Lay that pistol down
Pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Oh, pistol packing mama
Lay that pistol down

Lyrics by Al Dexter.
Recorded by Al Dexter; Bing Crosby; Hoyt Axton; others.
