Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Oh, oh, Carmen, I've had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon, I'm gonna fall

Allemande left and weave the ring
El Paso lady
Swing your girl and promenade her
In a language I don't understand, you said it all


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade, you go halfway
Down the middle and square thru go 4
Four hands around and you swing thru, boys run right
All the couples circulate
Do a wheel & deal, then make a right hand star
Girls turn back, swing your corner, promenade her
*I'll leave in the morning, but for now please let me in


TAG

In a language I don't understand, you said it all

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Without saying a word, you keep calling out my name
 
Lyrics

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Dusty old Juarez on the old Rio Grande
It sure is handy when you need a friend
I don't belong here, your dark eyes keep warning
I'll leave in the morning but for now please let me in.

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Crossing over the border, stepping over the line
Drunk on yesterday's wine and still feeling the flame
The guitars keep playing a song that I've never heard
Without saying a word, you keep calling out my name.

Oh Carmen, I had too much tequila
Between you and this Mexican moon I'm gonna fall
El Paso lady, you're driving me crazy
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.
In a language I don't understand, you said it all.

Lyrics by Steve Spurgin.
Recorded by Gene Watson.
