Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and circle to the left around you go
Left allemande come home a dosado
Four men star left one time and then
Box the gnat and do a wrong way grand
Hand over hand around and pull your partner by
Left allemande and promenade I cry
Promenade your partner around the ring you do
Who can I count on if I can't count on you


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway round the ring
Down the middle and square thru 4 hands I sing
4 hands and then dosado the outside two
Make a wave and the ladies trade
Recycle too, veer to the left and couples circulate
Move up and then, girls trade, partner trade, promenade that land
Promenade your partner, hug her up next to you
And ask her who can I count on if I can't count on you


TAG

Allemande left the corner and you swing the partner
Singing who can I count on if I can't count on you

Who Can I Count On
 
 

Who can I count on
If I can't count on you
I never counted on you
Makin' me blue
They say you're a-runnin' 'round
With somebody new
Who can I count on
If I can't count on you

I thought I held a precious key to heaven
Your love was sweet and gentle at the start
But now I feel that I can't go on livin'
If livin' means that we must live apart

Who can I count on
If I can't count on you
There goes my happiness
And here comes the blues
I can't convince myself that
We're really through
Who can I count on
If I can't count on you

The door to happiness was almost open
Just one more step or two and I'd be in
Then all at once the vows you made were broken
The door to happiness was closed again

Who can I count on
If I can't count on you
There goes my happiness
And here comes the blues
I can't convince myself
That we're really through
Who can I count on
If I can't count on you
Who can I count on
Who can I count on
Who can I count on
If I can't count on you

Lyrics by Sammy Masters.
Recorded by Patsy Cline.
