Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
*Well I can see you've got your eye on this old cowboy
And I can tell you've never had one for your own

Allemande left your corner, you dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
**You giggle every time that I say "yes ma'am"
Swing that girl and promenade
***You'd be seeing his and hers buckles, boots, and spurs
And that's a feeling you'll get over overnight


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway
Down the middle and square thru to 4
Go all the way and then you touch 1/4 here
Scoot back one time and then the boy run around that girl
You'll star thru and pass thru and trade by
Swing that corner and promenade
What you gonna do with a cowboy
When he don't saddle up and ride away


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*You see it takes a special kind of woman
To put up with the life a cowboy leads

**Don't even start to think you're gonna change him

***What he is, is what you've got and he can't be what he's not
And honey you can't hide him from your friends


CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade the inside
Get back, swing your man around
Join hands and circle to the left around the ring
Allemande left and weave the ring
You giggle every time that I say "yes ma'am"
Swing that girl and promenade
What you gonna do with a cowboy
When he don't saddle up and ride away

Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy
 
 

I can see you got your eye on this old cowboy
And I can tell you've never had one for your own
Or you've never been around one
Now you're thinkin that you've found one
Well, it might be kinda fun to take him home

You giggle every time that I say "yes ma'am"
And I get this feelin' if I held you tight
You'd be seein' his-and-hers buckles, boots, and spurs
But that's a feelin' you'll get over overnight

'Cause whatcha gonna do with a cowboy
When that old rooster crows at dawn
When he's lyin' there instead
Of gettin' out of bed
And puttin' on his boots and gettin' gone
What you gonna do when he says, "Honey
I've got half a mind to stay"
What you gonna do with a cowboy
When he don't saddle up and ride away?

You see, it takes a special kinda woman
To put up with the life a cowboy leads
Cause his boots are always muddy
And his beer drinkin buddies
They'll camp out on your couch and never leave

Don't even start to think you're gonna change him
You'd be better off to try to rope the wind
What he is, is what you've got
And he can't be what he's not
And honey, you can't hide him from your friends

So whatcha gonna do with a cowboy
When that old rooster crows at dawn
When he's lyin' there instead
Of gettin' out of bed
And puttin' on his boots and gettin' gone
What you gonna do when he says, "Honey
I got half a mind to stay"
Whatcha gonna do with a cowboy
When he don't saddle up and ride away

Yeah, what you gonna do with a cowboy
When he don't saddle up and ride away?

Lyrics by Garth Brooks and Mark D. Sanders.
Recorded by Chris LeDoux.
