OPENER    Basic

Circle left
That dusty winding country road that Daddy used to drive
It's a 4-lane highway now, speed limit 65

Allemande that corner come home a dosado
4 ladies promenade two times inside you know
Looks like the city's goin' country
Swing that lady, promenade
Yes, the city's goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same is that ever-changing wind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Side (head) two couples promenade halfway around you go
1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around you know
All the way around then, do the right & left thru
Now turn the girl and then do an eight chain 5 across you do
Looks like the city's goin' country
Trade by, swing the corner girl and promenade
Yes, the city's goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same is that ever-changing wind


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around that corner, see saw your own
4 men star by the right now, once around your own
Allemande that corner, come home a dosado
4 ladies promenade two times inside you know
Looks like the city's goin' country
Swing that lady, promenade
Yes, the city's goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same is that ever-changing wind

The City's Going Country
 
 

Looks like the city's a-goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same
Is that ever-changing wind

That dusty, winding country road that Daddy used to drive
It's a 4-lane highway now, speed limit 65
There's a streetlight where my Momma's flowers used to grow
And that burning cotton field we hoed is a drive-in show

Looks like the city's a-goin' country
They're selling gasoline out in the plains
Yes, the city's a-goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same
Is that ever-changing wind

Now there's a shopping center where my Grandpa used to plow
He'd turn over in his grave if he seen them pastures now
They cut the mountain halfway down to let the highway through
Now the sun comes up hours before the good Lord meant it to

Looks like the city's a-goin' country
They're trading cars where we brought the cattle in
Yes, the city's a-goin' country
And the only thing that's still the same
Is that ever-changing wind

Lyrics by Damon Black.
Recorded by Wilburn Brothers.
