Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I'm going back to the country
Cause I can't pay my rent

Men star right go round tonight
Left allemande then weave
Can you tell me where all the money went?
I ain't broke, but I'm badly bent


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Walk in and a right & left thru
Square thru 4 hands around you know
With the outsides dosado
Touch 1/4, walk & dodge, partner trade
Boys walk, girls dodge, swing and promenade
I ain't broke, but I'm badly bent


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They warned me about the city
About those city lights


*Yes, I am just a country boy
Trying to make some sense

I Ain't Broke But I'm Badly Bent
 
 

Well I'm going back to the country
I can't pay the rent
My mum and dad will sure be mad
At all the money I spent

Now I know
Just what they meant
I ain't broke
But brother I'm badly bent

Well I had a lot of money
But to the city I went
I met a lot of good-looking girls
And that's where my money went

Now I know
Just what they meant
I ain't broke
But brother I'm badly bent

Well when I get back to the country
I'll be living in a tent
My mum and dad will sure be mad
At all the money I spent

Now I know
Just what they meant
I ain't broke
But brother I'm badly bent

Well I'm a-going back to the country
I can't pay the rent
Now I know they're going to be mad
At all the money I spent

Now I know
Just what they meant
I ain't broke
But brother I'm badly bent

Lyrics by traditional; Martha Ellis.
Recorded by Almost Original New South.
