Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Bow to the partner
You allemande the corner, come back and dosado
Let the girls star left one time
At home box the gnat, grand right & left like that
Go walkin' down the line
When you meet box the gnat, pull her right on by now
Left allemande, you swing and promenade
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He'd have a ball in mine

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around
Walk in and pass the ocean there, extend
Swing thru, girls fold, peel the top
Move right up and do the right & left thru
Pass the ocean again, explode the wave my friend
Swing the corner lady, promenade
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He'd have a ball in mine

If The Devil Danced In Empty Pockets

Diablo Motors had a hell of a sale downtown yesterday
Word got around: No money down, take years and years to pay
When I got there, the lot was bare
But the salesman said, "Hold on
For a little cash I've got a two-tone Nash
Out behind the barn."

If the devil danced in empty pockets
He'd have a ball in mine
With a nine-foot grand, a ten-piece band
And a twelve-girl chorus line
I'd make some loot and a three-piece suit
Selling one dance for a dime
If the devil danced in empty pockets
He'd have a ball in mine

He said, "Friend, it ain't the end
Let's see what I can do
If you own your home I've got a loan
Tailor-made for you."
Then above the racket a voice from my jacket said
"I'll tote the note."
The devil made me do it, talked me into it
And that was all she wrote

(Repeat chorus)

Now they say debt is a bottomless pit
Where the devil likes to play
I'd sell my soul to get out of this hole
But there'd be hell to pay

(Repeat chorus)

Lyrics by Kim Williams and Ken Spooner.
Recorded by Joe Diffie.
