Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Martha Ellen Jenkins
How long have I chased the boys away from you?

Left allemande the corner, turn partner by the right
And now the men star left one time around
Home you go, you dosado
Left allemande, come back
Swing and promenade
Martha Ellen Jenkins
I've loved you since the second grade


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around the ring
You're gonna go dosado
Square thru again 4 hands around, face out
Bend the line, star thru
Dive thru and square thru 3/4 round
And then the corner swing and promenade
Martha Ellen Jenkins, I remember every time you broke my heart


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Martha Ellen Jenkins, how long have the boys been making eyes at you?

Martha Ellen Jenkins, how long have I waited for this day to come?

Martha Ellen Jenkins Lyrics ID: 2744

Martha Ellen Jenkins, how long have I chased the boys away from you
It seems like it was yesterday I turned Bill Johnson's green eyes black and blue
That was back in grammar school, already you had won my heart away
Martha Ellen Jenkins, I even loved you in the second grade

Martha Ellen Jenkins, I remember every time you broke my heart
The eighth grade it was Tommy Joe. Tommy, he was trouble from the start
I met him in the schoolyard one afternoon when everyone was gone
Martha Ellen Jenkins, Tommy didn't stay around too long

Martha Ellen Jenkins, how long have the boys been makin' eyes at you
You've always been a pretty one, you'd be any fella's dream come true
All the way through high school it tore me up to watch them as they stared
Martha Ellen Jenkins, some times you didn't notice I was there

Martha Ellen Jenkins, how long have I waited for the day to come
Ever since the second grade I prayed that I would be the lucky one
Now you're walkin' down the aisle just the way I always dreamed you would
Martha Ellen Jenkins, now I've chased the boys away for good

Martha Ellen Jenkins, now I've chased the boys away for good

Lyrics by Robert E. Brinkley and Phoebe Knox Brinkley.
Recorded by Marty Robbins.
