Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left in the alamo style, you balance out and in
You're gonna swing thru, go forward 2 and you balance once again
You're gonna swing thru, go forward 2 and turn her by the right hand around
Do an allemande left and weave the ring
Well now, the old man from the mountain's coming home, home
You're gonna meet your girl and promenade go walking around you roam
Get rid of Joe the Grinder and you better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's coming home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru go
Dosado the corner girl, go once around with you
You gonna swing thru come 2 by 2
Boys run right and then
You're gonna ferris wheel, come on in again
Centers pass thru, and you touch 1/4
Scoot back, swing the little corner girl
You gonna promenade that way
Get rid of Joe the Grinder and you better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's coming home

Old Man From The Mountain
 
 

The old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you, so I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe, the grinder: you better be there alone
Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home

I've been a-workin in the sawmill, an' I'm all uptight and tense
I got wind that someone's been diggin' under my back fence
Thought I'd better call you, an' let you know today
That the old man from the mountain's on his way

Yeah, the old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you, so I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe, the grinder: you better be there alone
Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home

Wind it up, now
Yeah!

I been workin' my dang fool head off all for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good lovin', so I'm comin' down the hill
Don't want no friendly Henry's warmin' up my bed
And the old man from the mountain's means what he said

Yeah, the old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you, so I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe, the grinder: you better be there alone
Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home

One more time

Yeah, the old man from the mountain's comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you, so I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe, the grinder: you better be there alone
Cause the old man from the mountain's comin' home
