Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Join your hands and circle left around the ring you go
Left hand turn your corner, just like a dopaso
Turn new corner by the right, her by the left again
All the way round, weave the ring, go in and out and in
They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
You dosado her, then promenade go two by two
I'll never be a poor boy
When I can swing with a dolly like you


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

1 & 3 lead to the right, you circle round that ring
Head gents break, join 8 hands, circle left again
Now whirlaway 1/2 sashay, circle 8 awhile
Reverse back, go the other way, let's do it single file
Gents turn back, box the gnat, dosado this girl
Swing that corner lady round, then promenade that world
I'll never be a poor boy
When I can swing with a dolly like you


TAG

I'll swing you, my dolly
Swing you, by golly
I love to swing a dolly like you

Poor Boy Lyrics ID: 562

They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
But I ain't lonesome and I ain't blue
'Cause I could never be a poor boy
As long as I've got a dolly like you

Ain't got a crust, ain't got a cent
Can't buy a jug, can't pay the rent
I got a heartfull of dreams
And a lot of memories
And that's enough for me

Can't buy a house, can't buy a lot
Ain't got a bean, I ain't got a pot
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Don't have a pig, don't have a cow
I don't have a horse to pull a plow
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Lyrics by Vera Matson.
Recorded by Elvis Presley.
