Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

4 ladies chain, well you're gonna turn them
You roll away, circle left
4 ladies roll away and you're gonna circle left and go
Do an allemande left that corner lady,
weave it you know and
I am rockin', rockin' my life away
Well you swing and promenade
*I've been a rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' my life away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle and go
Find your corner dosado, swing thru and then
Boys you run to the right, tag the line
Cloverleaf in time and come on girls
Square thru 3/4, swing your corner, promenade
*I've been a rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' my life away


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
And rock 'em (32 beat interlude)
4 ladies promenade go rollin'
Going to get back home, swing and promenade
I've been a rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' my life away

Rockin' My Life Away
 
 

From 1492 to 1998
I threw a rock 'n' roll party on my last birthday
Feels good rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin' and I'm havin' fun night and day

Streamline, fleetline, military brat
I got the general's daughter, taught her where it was at
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin' and I'm havin' fun night and day

I know a gal from Texas, she chili pepper hot
She knows hot to reel it and knows how to rock
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', havin' fun night and day

You know I like to party and I like to have fun
And like the Killer, I gotta rock on
Come on! Rockin' my life away
Movin' and groovin', I'm havin' fun night and day

You know I like some long and I like some lean
I like the way that you shake that thing
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', I'm havin' fun night and day

I got to have it one more time fellas!

From 1492 to 1998
I throw a rock 'n' roll party on every birthday
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
Said I'm movin' and groovin', havin' fun night and day
I'm rockin', rockin'
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', I'm gettin' some night and day
I love it!

Lyrics by Mack Vickery.
Recorded by George Thorogood And The Destroyers.
