Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I turned your whole heart upside down
I caught you cheatin' and running around

You do an allemande left your corner, dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Babe there's a green light you're free to go
You take the high road, I'll take the low
Well here's your coat and shoes and don't forget your blues
Your own canoe now you'll have to row


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples square thru 4 hands you go
Dosado with the one you know
Swing thru tonight, let a boy run to the right
Do a half tag, scoot back tonight
Boy run right, slide thru, everbody pass thru
Left allemande, swing and promenade
Well I'll hold my head up high and I'll forget you by and by
And there'll be laughter instead of tears


*Babe there's a green light, shift your gears
I know you fooled me for all these years


TAG

Swing your own canoe now you'll have to row

Green Light
 
 

I turned your whole card upside down
I caught you cheatin' and runnin' around
There's a smile upon your face while another takes my place
And now at last, dear, the truth I'd found

Babe, there's the green light, you're free to go
You take the high road, I'll take the low
Here's your coat and shoes and don't forget your blues
Your own canoe now you'll have to row

Babe, there's the green light, shift your gears
I know you fooled me for all these years
I'll hold my head up high, and I'll forget you by and by
And there'll be laughter instead of tears

Babe, there's the green light, kick up your heels
There'll come a day you'll know how it feels
To have your aces trumped and be taken for a chump
Now there's the green light, so spin your wheels

Lyrics by Hank Thompson.
