OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I sit here by this jukebox in this country bar
I gotta hear a fiddle and some steel guitar

You left allemande you know, turn your partner right and go
You left allemande that corner, weave the ring now
This old city gets me down, it's not been good to me
Swing that girl around and promenade you see
Well the future's lookin' bright, and I'm finally feeling right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head 2 couples promenade you go half around
Come down the middle with a right & left thru and turn 'em now
Square thru and you count 'em 4 you go movin' round you know
Dosado the corner lady, come on and swing thru and boys trade
And box the gnat, swing that girl and promenade like that
Well the future's lookin' bright, and I'm finally feeling right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the 4 little ladies promenade go once inside the ring
I sing, get along home there, swing there with your date now
Join up hands, make a ring out there, circle left go round man
Allemande that corner girl, you weave around that ring
This old city gets me down, it's not been good to me
Swing that girl around and promenade you see
Well the future's lookin' bright, and I'm finally feeling right
If it weren't for country music I'd go crazy

(If It Weren't for Country Music) I'd Go Crazy  (1991)

I sit here by the jukebox in this country bar
I gotta hear some fiddle and some steel guitar
A month ago my lovin' lady threw me out
And I don't know what to do, so I do without;

This old city brings me down, it ain't been good to me
But it's all that I can do to keep my sanity
But the future's lookin' bright, 'cause I'm finally feelin' right
And if it weren't for country music I'd go crazy.

I got holes in my boots, I got holes in my jeans
Holes in my pockets, man you know what that means
Between the bar tab and the jukebox, my money's all been spent
I'd even vote for Merle Haggard for president;

Play some Hank, Play some Willie, Play some Restless Heart
But don't play "A Tender Lie" 'cause I might fall apart
But the future's lookin' bright, 'cause I'm finally feelin' right
And if it weren't for country music I'd go crazy.

But the future's lookin' bright, 'cause I'm finally feelin' right
And if it weren't for country music I'd go crazy.

Lyrics by Alan Syms.
Recorded by Clinton Gregory.
