INTRO

Four ladies chain 3/4, you turn them
Chain 'em straight across
Sides face grand square (count eight steps)
Find the corner...allemande left
And circle to the left go 'round


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I'm checkin' out of this Heartbreak Hotel
I don't want to live on Lonely Street no more

Left allemande the corner, dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Oh through that grey window pane, it always looked like rain
Swing your girl around and promenade
We-e-ll, open up that door, I'm leavin' and I won't be back for more
Checkin' out of this Heartbreak Hotel


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, roll it one time and then
Same pair and do a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
Hey! open up that door, I'm leavin' and I won't be back for more
Checkin' out of this Heartbreak Hotel


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru and a count it four
You meet the sides and square thru again
On your fourth hand do a left touch 1/4
Peel the top, walk up and do the right & left thru
Dixie style a' make your wave and boys cross run
Girls trade, boys run right and promenade
Hey - open up that door, I'm leaving and I won't be back for more
Checkin' out of this Heartbreak Hotel


TAG

You swing your girl there boy
Checkin' out of this Heartbreak Hotel

I'm Checkin' Out

Pull back them dark and dusty drapes
And let in some light
Tell the bell-boy come and get my trunk
'Cause I'm leavin' here tonight

I packed my bags and I paid my bill
And I'm turnin' in my key
And if those sad souls down in the lobby ask for me
Just tell 'em

I'm checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel
I ain't gonna live on Lonely Street no more (no more)
I've found a new love and a new place to dwell
Where teardrops ain't soakin' the floor

So, take down my suitcase and hand me my hat
I'm goin' from sleazy to swell
Give that desk-clerk a dime and you can just tell him that I'm
Checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel

Well, you can give that sad bellhop my old blues guitar
'Cause I'm only gonna sing them sweet songs from now on, yeah
And you can tell that old bartender he might as well close down the bar
Cause Chug-a-Luggin' Sally's packed an' gone

Through that gray windowpane it always looked like rain
But there's sunshine outside I can tell
Open up that door, I'm leavin' an' I won't be back no more
I'm checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel
Checkin' out of this heartbreak hotel

Lyrics by Shel Silverstein.
Recorded by Meryl Streep.
