OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
You always leave me holding' the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?

4 ladies chain across that ole ring
Chain 'em back, promenade and sing
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way around
Come down the middle and curlique, walk & dodge
And then swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Bend the line and do a right & left thru
Flutter wheel across, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, swing the corner, promenade her home
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two
That ole' ugly one for me and the pretty one for you
Well, Joe, I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar

4 ladies chain across that ole ring
Chain 'em back, promenade and sing
Yeah you were up front playin' lovers tag
While I was in the back seat just holdin' the bag


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Remember when I needed your alibi
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DUI

4 ladies chain across that ole ring
Chain 'em back, promenade and sing
Now after all we've done it's a wonder we're friends
But ole pal you know we'll do it again

Holding The Bag
 
 

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember out in Austin that time that we got tight?
You told that ole boy that I wanted to fight
Now, Moe, you know I really thought a that you could win
And I didn't see no sense in me a steppin' in

You almost got me killed when you started to brag
And that's when you ran off and left me holding the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember back in Nashville when we picked up them two?
That old ugly one for me and the pretty one for you
Well, Joe, I bought the gas and it was my car
And I got stuck for all the beer at the bar
Yeah, you were up front a playin' lover's tag
While I was in the back seat just a holdin' the bag

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Remember when I needed your alibi?
My wife called you up and you didn't lie
Now that's not as bad as when you had me to drive
And I ended up with that DUI
Now after all we've done, it's a wonder we're friends
But old Pal you know we'd do it again

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

You always leave me holding the bag
Don't you know it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
You think it's funny but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holding the bag?

Lyrics by Buck Moore and Pat Bunch.
Recorded by Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley.
