Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*You may think I'm talking foolish
You've heard that I'm wild and I'm free

Left allemande this corner, come back a dosado
Left allemande the corner, then weave around the ring
You're not just time that I'm killing
Swing and promenade her on home
Baby I'm gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads you square thru and go 4 now
Round the corner do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, let a boy run right
Tag the line, face right, wheel & deal
Turn thru and you go left allemande
Swing a new girl and you promenade
I'm gonna love you forever and ever
Forever and ever, amen


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men

*Time takes its toll on a body
Makes the young girls' brown hair turn gray

Forever And Ever Amen
 
 

You may think that I'm talking foolish
You've heard that I'm wild & I'm free
You may wonder how I can promise you now
This love that I'm feeling for you always will be
You're not this time that I'm killing
I'm no longer one of those guys
As sure as I live this love that I give
Is gonna be yours till the day that I die -- Oh baby

CHORUS:
I'm gonna love you forever, forever & ever amen
As long as old men sit & talk about the weather
As long as old women sit & talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
I'll be happy to tell you again
I'm gonna love you forever & ever, forever & ever Amen

They say that time takes it's toll on a body
Makes the young girls brown hair turn grey
But honey, I don't care, I'm not in love with your hair
And if it all fell out well I'd love you anyway
They say that time can play tricks on a memory
And people forget things that they knew
But it's easy to see it's happening to me
I've already forgotten every woman but you --- Oh baby

I'm gonna love you forever, forever & ever amen
As long as old men sit & talk about the weather
As long as old women sit & talk about old men
If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
I'll be happy to tell you again
I'm gonna love you forever & ever, forever & ever Amen

Just listen to how this song ends
I'm gonna love you forever & ever forever & ever
Forever & ever Forever & ever Amen

Lyrics by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz.
Recorded by Randy Travis.
