OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Now I'm a gal with a heart of gold
With the ways of a lady I've been told
The kind of a gal who wouldn't hurt a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented the cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree

4 ladies chain, you turn the girl and then
You chain 'em right on home
You promenade go walkin' round you roam
Now nicotine slaves are all the same
At a pettin' party or a poker game
Everything's gotta stop while they have that cigarette


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads flutter wheel across that ring you go
Same 4 square thru, slide thru
You curlique and then
Coordinate and keep it straight
You wheel & deal, then swing that corner girl
Allemande left new corner, then promenade around that world
Tell Saint Peter at the pearly gates
You hate to make him wait
But you gotta have just one more cigarette


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Join hands and circle to the left around that ring
All the way around till you get back home again
Walk around your corner, come home and there you swing
Left allemande and then weave around that ring
Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette
You dosado your baby, then promenade that pet
Tell Saint Peter at the pearly gates
You hate to make him wait
But you gotta have just one more cigarette


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Now the other night I had me a date
With the cutest guy in the fifty states
A high bred, uptown, smooth talking man
He said he loved me and it seemed to me
Things were about like they ought to be
As hand in hand we strolled down lovers lane

4 ladies chain, you turn that gal
And chain 'em right back home
Promenade around that ring you roam
So I give him a hug and a little squeeze
And he says "ah, honey, 'scuse me, please
But I just gotta have me one more cigarette


TAG

Now you all can keep on dancing if you want to
But I'm gonna stop right here and light up

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke (That Cigarette)
 
 

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold
With the ways of a gentleman, I've been told
The kind of a feller that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented the cigarette
I'd murder that son-of-a-gun in the first degree.

Now, it ain't 'cause I don't smoke myself
An' I don't reckon that they hinder your health
I've smoked 'em all my life and I ain't dead yet!
But nicotine slaves are all the same
At a pettin' party or a poker game
Ev'ry-thing's gotta stop while they smoke the cigarette.

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that cigarette
Puff, Puff, Puff it if you smoke yourself to death
Tell Saint Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hates to make him wait
You've just gotta have another cigarette.

In a game of chance the other night
Old Dame Fortune was a-doin' me right
Man, the kings and queens just kept on comin' around
Then I got a full and I bet it high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He just keep on raisin' and layin' the money down.

Now, he'd raise me - I'd raise him
I sweated blood - you gotta sink or swim
He finally called - didn't raise the bet
I said, "Aces full, Pal, how 'bout you?"
He said, "Well, I'll tell you in just a minute or two
But right now, I just gotta have myself a cigarette."

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that cigarette
Puff, Puff, Puff it if you smoke yourself to death
Tell Saint Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hates to make him wait
You've just gotta have another cigarette.

Now, the other night I had me a date
With the cutest little gal in the forty-eight states
A highbred, uptown, fancy little dame
She said she loved me and it seemed to me
That ev'rything was 'bout like it oughta be
So hand in hand, we strolled down lover's lane.

She was, oh, so far from a chunk of ice
And our smoochin' party was goin' real nice
So help me, Hannah, I think I'd-a been there yet
Well, I give her a kiss - a little squeeze
She said, "Tex, excuse me - please, but
I just gotta have another cigarette."

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that cigarette
Puff, Puff, Puff it if you smoke yourself to death
Tell Saint Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hates to make him wait
You've just gotta have another cigarette.

Lyrics by Merle Travis and Tex Williams.
