Cue Sheet
 

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies promenade, go walking round the ring
Box the gnat at home, give that man a swing
Join all your hands, circle left you know
Allemande that corner, weave around the ring
Big boss man
Dosado and promenade
Well you ain't so big, just tall and that's all


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 you star thru
California twirl you do
Do a double swing thru, now go 4 hands you do
Boys trade, girls trade, that corner swing
Left allemande then weave that old ring
Big boss man
Dosado and promenade
Well you ain't so big, just tall and that's all


TAG

Well you ain't so big, just tall and that's all

SEQUENCE: (Opener, figure twice heads, break, figure twice sides, closer, tag)

Big Boss Man
 
 

Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Oh, you ain't so big
You're just tall, that's all

You got me working, boss man
Working 'round the clock
I want me a drink of water
You won't let me stop
You big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Gonna get myself a boss man
One gonna treat me right
Work me hard in the day time
But I'll sure rest easy at night
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain't so big
You just tall, that's all

Lyrics by Al Smith and Luther Dixon.
Recorded by Elvis Presley; Jerry Reed; Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; others.
