OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I'm sitting on a bar stool acting like a darned fool
That's what I'm a doin' today

Do an allemande left with your corner girl
Turn a right-hand round your own
Allemande left and weave the ring
Well I couldn't make her stay so doggone her anyway
Swing and promenade
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinking my baby goodbye


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru and let the boys run right
Half-tag, scoot back, hinge, balance
All eight circulate
Swing thru and the boys trade in the middle
Turn thru to the corner, allemande left and promenade
So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinking my baby goodbye


TAG

So pour me another one, I'm finished with the other one
I'm drinking my baby goodbye

Drinkin' My Baby Goodbye
 
 

Sittin' on a bar stool actin' like a darn fool
That's what I'm a doin' today
Sitting' here drinkin' tryin' to keep from thinkin'
I'm a boozin' my troubles away
Well now I couldn't make her stay, doggone her anyway
She can't say that I didn't try
I'm drinkin' my baby goodbye

Spoken:
Everytime we disagreed
She was always askin' me
Are you a man or a mouse
Now that she's gone
She probably thinks I'm home
Just a mopin' around the house
She probably thinks that she's the one thing
I just couldn't get along without
Well wouldn't it surprise her I got a sympathizer
As long as these bottles hold out

Repeat Chorus

Every time I try to sit down and talk to her
It always ends up in a fuss
I tried to reason with her right up to the time
She got on that Greyhound bus
It would be better if I could forget her
'Cause she sure forgot about me
And if it takes all night I'm gonna' do it right
I'm gonna' sit here till I can't see

Repeat Chorus

Lyrics by Charlie Daniels.
Recorded by Charlie Daniels Band.
