Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join your hands and circle to the left around the town
Swing your corner, go round and round
Allemande left, do an allemande thar, go forward 2 and star
Gents back down the line, you got a right hand star
Slip the clutch, left allemande and weave the ring
In and out until you meet that pretty Jane
Close all the honky tonks, throw away the key
Maybe the one I love will come back to me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head 2 promenade 3/4 round the town
Side 2 go right & left thru, turn the girl around
Dosado do an ocean wave, rock it up and back
Swing thru 2 by 2 and rock it up and back
Box the gnat, pull her by, the corner lady swing
Promenade the lady, go full around the ring
Close all the honky tonks, throw away the key
Maybe the one I love will come back to me

Close Up The Honky Tonks
 
 

She's in some honky tonk tonight, I know
She's dancing where the music's loud and lights are low
In a crowded bar she likes to hang around
And as long as there's a honky tonk, she'll never settle down

So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don't let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
Then maybe the one I love will come back to me

I wish I had the power to turn back the time
And live again the hours when she was all mine
But it hurts to see her running with that crowd downtown
And as long as there's a honky tonk, she'll never settle down

So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don't let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
Then maybe the one I love will come back to me

Lyrics by Red Simpson.
Recorded by Buck Owens.
