Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
As the maid poured the wine, we prepared to dine
I knew I was feeling out of place
At a table as large as a river barge
And "I love you" written all on your face

Circle left
I'm just a common man, drive a common van
Left allemande, swing and promenade
*And if I had my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man's what I'll be


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and count 'em 4 hands and go
Get around your corner dosado
Swing thru and then, boys run right and then
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Girls lead, dixie style, make your wave, the boys trade
Boys cross fold, swing and promenade
And if I had my say, I'm gonna stay that way
And a common man's what I'll be


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm gonna stay that way, 'cause high brow people lose their sanity
And a common man's what I'll be

Common Man
 
 

As the maid poured wine and we began to dine
I knew I was feeling out of place
At a table as large as a river barge
And I love you written all on your face

I appreciate your hospitality
But I wish that we would go
Let me drive us to McDonalds and I'll talk to you
Concerning something you should really know

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

I'll take a Chevrolet just anyday
So give your daddy back his Mercedes Benz
And there's some common people I hang out with
They're my good time buddies - they're my friends

And I'd rather chug-a-lug a mug of Budweiser beer
Than sip a crystal glass of wine
So won't you make your mind up to believe in me
And leave this high living world behind

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

Yes I'm happy just being free
And I'm happy just being me
And I hope that you will see

I'm just a common man, drive a common van
My dog ain't got a pedigree
If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

Lyrics by Sammy Johns.
Recorded by John Conlee.
