Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle Left
*What do you say when it's over?
Don't know if I should say anything at all

Left allemande, dosado her
Left allemande and weave around the ring
And I'm leaving here a better man
Swing your lady round and promenade
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
And I'm leaving here a better man


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru to 4 now
And with the sides you make a right hand star
Heads star left and roll it one time
To the corner lady do the right & left thru
You'll swing thru then, swing thru again
Swing the corner girl and promenade
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
And I'm leaving here a better man


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Still I think about the years before I met you
And the way things might have been without you here


*Guess I always knew I couldn't hold you
But I'd never be the one to set you free

A Better Man
 
 

What do you say when it's over?
I don't know if should say anything at all.
One day you're rolling in the clover,
The next thing you know you take a fall.

But still I think about the years since I first met you,
And the way it might have been without you here.
I don't know if words from me can still upset you,
But I just have to make this memory stand clear.

I know I'm leaving here a better man
For knowing you this way.
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can.
I'm leaving here a better man.

I guess I always knew I couldn't hold you
But I'd never be the one to set you free
Just like some old nursery rhyme your mama told you
You still believe in some old meant-to-be

Still I'm leavin' here a better man
For knowin' you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can
And I'm leavin' here a better man

Yes I'm leavin' here a better man
For knowin' you this way
Things I couldn't do before, now I know I can
And I'm leavin' here a better man

Yes I'm leavin' here a better man

Lyrics by Clint Black and Hayden Nicholas.
Recorded by Clint Black.
