Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I pulled out on the highway in my little foreign car
Well it's raining and the roads are really bad

Left allemande the corner, turn a right hand round your own
Allemande left and weave the ring
There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
Swing your girl and promenade
I can hear St. Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle, it's 4 hands you know
All the way and do a right & left thru
Swing thru in the middle of the night and then the boys run right
Ferris wheel, you move to the middle and then
Right & left thru, a full turn around
Make a right hand star and now, girls turn back
Swing with your corner and promenade
I can hear St. Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail

Diesel On My Tail
 
 

I just pulled out on the highway in my little foreign car
It was raining and the road was mighty bad
I didn't see that big old diesel but I heard him hit the air
I've a feeling that I might have made him mad

He closed the gap between us, pushed his pedal to the floor
Making ninety in that big old diesel truck
I can hear the names he's calling me above the engine's roar
And the words won't be found in Webster's book

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

I'm huffing and a-puffing and I'm trying to make the grade
And I wish I had some pedals on this car
And I'm slipping and a-sliding and afraid to touch the brakes
For this doodle bug could never stand the jar

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

I'm a-slipping and a-sliding, trying to hold it on the road
And I can tell you I just got to win this race
While I'm trembling and a-shaking, he's blowing on his horn
So close that I could steal his license plate

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

Lyrics by Jim Fagan.
Recorded by Jim & Jesse.
