OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
So long big city, it's time to say goodbye
I'm longing for those country roads, I need to see the sky

Walk around your corner, see saw round your own
Allemande left that corner girl and weave the ring you roam
Gonna take that blue highway, leave this town behind
Swing and whirl a country girl and promenade so fine
I've had it up to here with worry, from now on I'm in no hurry
Rollin' down that blue highway


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway round the square
Down the middle with a right & left thru, turn that lady there
Flutter wheel across the floor and sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and a right & left thru, turn the girl once more
Veer to the left and then, wheel & deal my friend
Swing and whirl the corner girl and promenade again
I won't take the interstate that represents the things I hate
I'm rollin' down that blue highway

Blue Highway
 
 

So long, big city; it's time to say goodbye.
I'm longing for those country roads;
I need to see the sky.
Think I'll take a swing down south, visit Tennessee.
See if that girl Annie still remembers me.

Gonna take that blue highway and leave this sorry town.
Stayed too long, but now I'm gone, and I know where I'm bound.
I don't wanna take the interstate; it represents all the things I hate.
I'm rollin' down that blue highway.

So long, confusion; it's time to slow things down.
Say goodbye to my old friends, ease on out of town.
I made me some money here but paid for ev'ry day.
And ev'ry mile just makes me smile, 'cause I made my getaway.

Gonna take that blue highway and leave this sorry town.
I've stayed too long, but now I'm gone, and I know where I'm bound.
I've had it up to here with worry.
From now on, I'm in no hurry, rollin' down that blue highway.

I'll be ridin' that blue highway and leave this sorry town.
I've stayed too long, but now I'm gone, and I know where I'm bound.
I've had it up to here with worry.
From now on, I'm in no hurry, rollin' down that blue highway.
I'll be rollin' down that blue highway.
You can find me on that blue highway.

Lyrics by Neil Diamond and Harlan Howard.
Recorded by Neil Diamond.
