OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I'd rather be home but I make my living on the road
A big cadillac take me down the road, stop at another show

Allemande left your corner girl, come back a dosado
4 boys star by the left it's once around you go
Well come on home, turn her by the right, you go left allemande
Swing your own around and promenade the land
Think about holding my baby at night
As I listen to the big wheels roll
Three days into a six week tour
Getting in the rhythm of the road


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you gonna promenade go halfway around
Down the middle square thru 4 hands around
4 hands around and then you do the right & left thru
You're gonna veer to the left and then a ferris wheel you do
Square thru in the middle 3/4 to the corner swing
Swing & whirl the corner girl and promenade the ring
Don't know where I'll wake up in the morning
But I can't let the tempo slow
A four/four beat's the only time I keep
Getting in the rhythm of the road

Rhythm Of The Road
 
 

I'd rather be home,
But I make my livin' on the go
Big silver eagle spreads her wings
And drops us at another show
I think about holdin' my baby tonight
As I listin to the big wheels roll
Three days into a six week tour,
Gettin' in the rhythm of the road

We pick and sing,
Say "goodnight" then we'll be flyin'
My world's a chain of one-night-stands
Strung together by the center line
I don't know where I'll wake up tomorrow,
But I can't let the tempo slow
Every town is just another beat,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

The rhythm of the road's got a mind of it's own
If you find it it'll drive you insane
Like the clackity-clack of a railroad track
I'm rattlin' like an old freight train
Towns are flashin' by, the folks are wavin' "hi"
They all start to look the same
Gotta stop for a minute, be glad I'm in it
Remember just why I came

Those highway signs, Lord, they keep me on the move
I think about givin' it up sometimes,
And gettin' in a diff'ren groove
But I just let the days slide by,
Get goin' with the flow
A four/four beat's the only time I keep,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

A four/four beat's the only time I keep,
Livin' in the rhythm of the road

Livin' in the rhythm of the road

Lyrics by Dan McCoy.
Recorded by George Strait.
