Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across
Turn and chain these ladies home
Join your hands and circle left
Allemande left and weave the ring
*I feel the country callin' me
Dosado and promenade
**Pack up your bags and your guitar
(Come on home) catch a bug, put 'em in a jar


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Just lying back in the cool green grass

*My mind slips back to another time

**Watchin' the evening sun go down
Crickets are the only sound around


**Had an old hound dog to be my friend
Wish I could be a kid again


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Walk in and square thru go four
Swing thru, the outside two
Boys you run and ferris wheel
Square thru and count 'em 3
Swing that corner, promenade
I feel the country callin' me
Sayin' come on home where you ought to be


TAG

Four ladies chain across, then chain them back
I feel the country callin' me

I Feel The Country Calling Me
 
 

Sometimes when I take a little break
My mind slips away to a still green lake
'Bout a thousand miles away from here
I got a fishing pole and a nice cold beer

Just lying back in the cool green grass
Nothing on my mind but a five pound bass
Watching the evening sun go down
The crickets are the only sound around

I feel the country calling me
Saying come on home where you ought to be
Pack up your clothes and your guitar
Come home and catch a lightning bug
Put it in a jar

Some clown's got his foot inside my door
Telling me a joke I've heard before
My mind slips back to another time
I got that old bass hanging on the line

I got an old hound dog to be my friend
Life was so much simpler then
But then the lights start dimming down
And it's my turn to be a clown

I hear the people calling me
Saying get on stage where you're supposed to be
Wish I could pack up this guitar
Go home and catch a lightning bug
And put it in a jar

I feel the country calling me
Saying come on home where you're supposed to be
Pack up your clothes and your guitar
Come home and catch a lightning bug
Put it in a jar

Lyrics by Mac Davis.
Recorded by Mac Davis; Charley Pride.
