Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
*He met her in a honky tonk
Singing country songs that he wrote

Left allemande the corner
Swing with your honey, men star left
Turn the partner by the right
Left allemande, come back and swing your own, promenade
Now the moral to this story is
Cowboys don't get lucky all the time


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway around the ring you'll go
Square thru 4 hands around
Swing thru the outside pair, the boys run
Do a 1/2 tag, trade and roll, pass thru, trade by
Swing that corner lady round, allemande and promenade
Now the moral to this story is
Cowboys don't get lucky all the time


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*When the small talk was over
That cowboy drank his beer and took her home

*Now she still sees the cowboy
On country shows and somtimes on TV

Cowboys Don't Get Lucky All The Time
 
 

He met her in a honky tonk
Singing country songs that he wrote
She sat at a table
Listening to his music and drinking coke
Well, he sat down beside her
Said, honey, what's your name
She said I like your music, sir,
But foolin' 'round is certainly not my game

When the small talk was over
The cowboy drank his beer and took her home
Lust on his mind
In a bedroom he had her all alone
And when the night was over
The cowboy shook his head
'Cause she slept on the sofa
And the cowboy slept alone on his bed

She still sees the cowboy
On the country shows and sometimes on T.V.
He phones her up and talks to her long distance
From wherever he might be
He'll ask her how she's doin'
She'll reply by sayin', oh, just fine
And the moral of this story is
Cowboys don't get lucky all the time
And the moral of this story is
Cowboys don't get lucky all the time

Lyrics by Dallas Harms.
Recorded by Gene Watson.
