Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well I look a little rough but I've got a few miles on me
My body needs work, my style ain't what it used to be

Left allemande, weave the ring
Honey, I'll admit there's places where I'm wearing thin
Swing the girl and promenade
But I ain't broken down, I'm just getting broken in


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Well now you heads promenade, travel halfway around that ring
Lead to the right, veer to the left
Couples circulate and then, bend the line
Load the boat, get movin' round that ring
Square thru count 3,
swing that corner, promenade
Well I may be used, but baby I ain't used up

I May Be Used (But Baby I Ain't Used Up)
 
 

Well my baby you're a looker and I know what you're looking for
You've been looking over every man at the bar
Honey, I know I've got a few years on you
But if you're shopping around, let me tell you a thing or two

Well I look a little rough and I got a few miles on me
My body needs work and my style ain't what it used to be
And honey I'll admit there's places where I'm wearing thin
But I ain't broke down, I just couldn't hold it in

Well I may be worn, but baby I ain't worn out
Let me take you for a ride and I'll show you what I'm talking about
I guarantee, there's a lot of me left to love
Well I may be used, but baby I ain't used up

I've been wrecked a few times and honey it shows, I guess
There's been once or twice that you could say that I was repossessed
There's one little thing that I think ought to be understood
It ain't how you look, it's what you got under your hood

Well I may be worn, but baby I ain't worn out
Let me take you for a ride and I'll show you what I'm talking about
I guarantee, there's a lot of me left to love
Well I may be used, but baby I ain't used up

Lyrics by Bob McDill.
Recorded by Waylon Jennings.
