Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time around
Back home swing, swing your lady 'round
Join hands, circle left walking around the ring
Allemande left your corner girl, weave around the ring
* There's a speed zone ahead but all right
I don't see a cop in sight

(Swing your lady 'round tonight, and promenade the ring)
Six days on the road, and I'm gonna make it home tonight


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* Just passed a Jimmy and a White
I've been passing everything in sight


* My hometown's coming in sight
If you think I'm happy you're right


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade and go half way around
Down the middle and do a right & left thru, turn her 'round
Square thru and go four hands around you know
Dosado your corner girl, swing thru and boys you trade
Swing your corner girl and you promenade the ring
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.
