Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I like to drive down a dusty highway
After the sun's gone down

Men star right, turn it one time and go
Left allemande and weave the ring
I'm gonna rock, ride, nothin' to hide
Swing that girl and promenade
I'm gonna roll, right, into the night
Take the midnight highway


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway around
Walk in square thru 4
Go all the way and then do the right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, touch 1/4
Scoot back, scoot back again
Swing your corner, promenade
I'm gonna roll, right, into the night
*Take the midnight highway


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Let the headlights guide me

Swing her

Midnight Highway
 
 

I can't think of one reason
I like the things I do
I take a ride on a good feeling
Knowing it'll see me through
Like a drive down a dusty highway
After the sun's gone down
Chasing shadows into the new day
Leavin' this lonely town

I'm gonna rock, ride nothing to hide
Let the headlights guide me
I'm gonna roll right into the night
Take the midnight highway
Midnight highway

I knew a girl, now she's a woman
We used to watch the road at night
Dream about where the road could take us
Counting all the red taillights
Now she stands at the kitchen window
Staring at the old highway
There's still a girl inside the woman
If you listen you can hear her say

I'm gonna rock, ride nothing to hide
Let the headlights guide me
I'm gonna roll right into the night
Take the midnight highway
Midnight highway

Like a drive down a dusty highway
After the sun's gone down
Chasing shadows into the new day
Leavin' this lonely town

I'm gonna rock, ride nothing to hide
Let the headlights guide me
I'm gonna roll right into the night
Take the midnight highway
Midnight highway

Take the midnight highway
Midnight highway
I'm gonna take the midnight highway
Midnight highway
Gonna take the midnight highway...

Lyrics by Kurt Howell and John McFee.
Recorded by Southern Pacific.
