Cue Sheet
 

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I came from a town that was so small
If you looked both ways, you could see it all

Left allemande, dosado
Left allemande then you weave the ring
I'd stand around by the caution light
And watch the big trucks rollin' by
To me it was a beautiful sight
Big wheels in the moonlight


FIGURE (Twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands you know
All the way and do a dosado
Swing thru, boys you will trade
Boys run, bend the line and then star thru
Dive thru, square thru it's 3 hands
Swing your corner lady promenade
To me, it was a beautiful sight
Big wheels in the moonlight


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
And I want to put my life on the centerline
And I want to see the world before I die

Do an allemande left, weave the ring
And I know that there's a peace I'll never find
'cause those big old wheels keep rollin' through my mind


TAG

Those big old wheels keep rollin' through my mind

(lyrics for Opener)
I came from a town that was so small
If you looked both ways, you could see it all
All I wanted was some way out; every evening I?d slip into town
I'd stand around by the caution light, and watch the big trucks rollin' by
**To me it was a beautiful sight, big wheels in the moonlight

** I fell asleep most every night dreamin'
'bout big wheels in the moonlight.


(lyrics for Middle Break and Closer)
And I want to put my life on the centerline
And I want to see the world before I die
And I know that there's a peace I'll never find
'cause those big old wheels keep rollin' through my mind

Big Wheels In The Moonlight
 
 

I came from a town that was so small
You look both ways, you could see it all
All I wanted was some way out
Every evening I'd slip into town

And stand around by the caution light
And watch the big trucks rolling by
For me it was a beautiful sight
Big wheels in the moonlight

I had a case of wanderlust
I'd lie awake with the windows up
Out on Highway Fifty Nine
I could hear some big old diesel whine

She was going through all the gears
And headed out to who knows where
I fell asleep 'most every night
Dreaming about big wheels in the moonlight

And I want to put my life on the centerline
And I want to see the world before I die
And I know that there's a peace I'll never find
'Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

How I got here, it's hard to say
So many things got in my way
Can't complain about all I've got
Kids and a wife and a regular job

But at night when I'm sitting here
All alone in a living room chair
Sometimes I close my eyes
And see big wheels in the moonlight

And I want to put my life on the centerline
And I want to see the world before I die
And I know that there's a peace I'll never find
'Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

And I want to put my life on the centerline
And I want to see the world before I die
And I know that there's a peace I'll never find
'Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

'Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

Lyrics by Dan Seals and Bob McDill.
Recorded by Dan Seals.
