Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Well I'm rollin' out of Pittsburgh, goin' down the eastern seaboard
I've got my diesel wound up - she's runnin' like never before

Left allemande, weave the ring
**There's a speed zone up ahead tonight
Promenade
***I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around you go
Dosado
Swing thru, spin the top you know
And a right & left thru
Square thru three hands around
Swing, promenade that town
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight


FIGURE (ALTERNATE) (Plus)    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around the ring you go
Down the middle, pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru, spin the top you know
And a right & left thru
Pass thru, chase right
Swing, promenade tonight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The ICC is checking up and down the line
I'm a little overweight and my logbook's way behind


**Everything's gonna be alright

***I can dodge those scales tonight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight


*It seems like a month since I kissed my baby goodbye
I could have a lot of women, but I'm not like some other guys


**If I could find one to hold me tight

***I could never make beleave it was right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Six Days On The Road
 
 

Well, I pulled out of Pittsburgh
Rollin' down the Eastern Seaboard
I've got my diesel wound up
And she's running like never before
There's a speed zone ahead, all right
I don't see a cop in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

I got ten forward gears
And a Georgia overdrive
I'm taking little white pills
And my eyes are open wide
I just passed a 'Jimmy' and a 'White':
I've been passin' everything in sight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well, it seems like a month
Since I kissed my baby good-bye
I could have a lot of women
But I'm not like some of the guys
I could find one to hold me tight
But I could never make believe that it's right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

I.C.C. is checking on down the line
I'm a little overweight and my log book's way behind
But nothing bothers me tonight
I can dodge all the scales all right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Well my rig's a little old
But that don't mean she's slow
There's a flame from her stack
And that smoke's glowing black as coal
My hometown's coming in sight
If you think I'm happy your right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Lyrics by Earl Green and Carl Montgomery.
Recorded by Dave Dudley.
