Men star left, go once around that land
Turn partner by the right, your corners allemande
Come back one and promenade that town

Turn your girl, pass thru, wheel & deal

Best Dressed Beggar (In Town)
 
 

Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town
Beggin' for kisses I guess I'll never see
Longin' for love, warm and sweet
Askin' for miracles I know can never be
I look better than the beggar in the street
Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town

Beggin' for kisses I guess I'll never see
Longin' for love, warm and sweet
Askin' for miracles I know can never be
I look better than the beggar in the street
Well, I got on my watch and my gold diamond ring
Got on my new suit of brown
I'm sittin' on your doorstep crying for your love
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town
I'm the best dressed beggar in town
The best dressed beggar in town

Lyrics by Houston Turner.
Recorded by Houston Turner; Carl Smith.
