OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Doggone my soul how I love them old songs
They were a comfort to me when I was alone

Left allemande the corner, box the gnat at home
Four ladies promenade, once inside you roam
Turn partner by the right, full turn and then
Left allemande the corner and promenade again
Well, the dancin' is over and the music goes on
Doggone my soul how I love them old songs


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain across, turn the girl you know
Heads pass thru and a partner trade you go
Square thru for me, four hands around you see
Then do a right & left thru, turn that pretty Sue
Swing thru 2 by 2 and now boys trade
Swing that pretty girl, we'll all promenade
Well, the dancin' is over and the music goes on
Doggone my soul


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Doggone my mind just won't leave me alone
It keeps remindin' me I'm so far from home
Them heart breakin', achin', eggs and bacon country songs
They take me back to hardwood floors, outdoor johns and mason jars

Four ladies promenade, once inside that set
Get home, swing your man and promenade that set
Well, the dancin' is over and the music goes on
Doggone my soul how I love them old songs

How I Love Them Old Songs

Doggone my soul, how I love them old songs
They were a comfort to me when I was alone
The dancin' stops, but the music must go on
Doggone my soul how I love them old songs.

Ah! when I hear that double eagle guitar
It makes me think how trouble free girls we are
There was a time I spent my nights in a bar
Playin' that old juke box until the honky tonky locked up

Doggone my mind just won't leave me alone
Keeps on reminding me I'm so far from home.
Those heart breakin' achin' eggs and bacon country songs
They take me back to hard wood floors, outdoor johns, and mason jars

It's all I can do to believe that's it's gone
That hard knockin', rock 'n' rollin' life that I've known
But dancin' stopped, and the music must go on
Doggone my soul how I love them old songs.

Lyrics by Mickey Newbury.
Recorded by Carl Smith; Mickey Newbury; others.
