Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade a one time along
Gonna run along in and swing and whirl your boy
Come on, join hands circle left, go walkin' along
Do an allemande left that corner and you weave the ring
I'm just a common man, I drive a common van
My dog ain't got no pedigree

Swing and promenade
And if I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man is what I'll be


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle it's 4 hands around
To the corner of the ring let's do the right & left thru
You do a touch 1/4, girls fold, double pass thru
Boys do a U-turn back, star thru
Boys trade, cast off and you go 3/4 round
Boys walk straight across, swing that corner girl and promenade
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man is what I'll be

Common Man
 
 

As the maid poured wine and we began to dine
I knew I was feeling out of place
At a table as large as a river barge
And I love you written all on your face

I appreciate your hospitality
But I wish that we would go
Let me drive us to McDonalds and I'll talk to you
Concerning something you should really know

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

I'll take a Chevrolet just anyday
So give your daddy back his Mercedes Benz
And there's some common people I hang out with
They're my good time buddies - they're my friends

And I'd rather chug-a-lug a mug of Budweiser beer
Than sip a crystal glass of wine
So won't you make your mind up to believe in me
And leave this high living world behind

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

Yes I'm happy just being free
And I'm happy just being me
And I hope that you will see

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

Lyrics by Sammy Johns.
Recorded by John Conlee.
