Cue Sheet


Dosado your corner, see saw your partner
Join your hands and make a ring
Allemande your corner, dosado your partner
Gents star left just once around
Get back home and dosado and corner allemande
Come on back and promenade go walking hand in hand
I'm going to be just as gone as a wild goose in winter
Understand your man

FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Heads star right, turn it once in the center
Back by the left to the corner go
Dosado it's back to back, same girl star thru
Right & left thru and turn you know
Cross trail to the corner girl and go left allemande
Come back one and promenade go walking hand in hand
I'm going to be just as gone as a caller after midnight
Understand your man

Understand Your Man

Don't call my name out your window I'm leaving and I won't even turn my head
Don't send your kinfolks to give me no talkin' I'll be long gone like I said
You say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut till I'm gone
And don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan
Understand your man, understand your man

You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army and everything else I leave behind
Cause I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my traveling
While I'm untangling my mind
Oh I ain't gonna repeat what I've said anymore
While I'm breathin' this air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter, you'll understand your man

Think about it honey, understand your man
Hear me talkin', understand your man
Cause I'm leavin', understand your man
Don't be grievin', understand your man

Lyrics by Johnny Cash. 


March, 1964.
