Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
You've got to dance with who brung you
Swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
Left allemande the corner girl, dosado
Left allemande, weave you know
You've got to dance with who brung you
Swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty yard dash
Be in it for the long run, 'cause you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway
Sides will do the right & left thru
Square thru 4 hands around you know
Dosado and do an eight chain 4
You've got to dance with who brung you
Swing with who swung you
Swing that corner, promenade
Be in it for the long run, 'cause you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Sides square thru and count 'em 4 hands round
Round that corner dosado
You swing thru and then, boys run right
1/2 tag, scoot back tonight
Boys you fold, double pass thru
Girls peel right
Swing that corner man and promenade
Be in it for the long run, 'cause you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash


Sides promenade and go 'bout halfway
Lead right and do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, once again the boys run right
All the couples circulate, you tag the line and then
Girls go left, the boys go right
Allemande left, hang on, roll promenade, keep her she's yours
Be in it for the long run, 'cause you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

4 ladies join up hands, circle left inside the ring
Back home and then everybody circle
(talk) Ah, a little western swing
Left allemande, why don't you weave that ring
You've got to dance with who brung you
Swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty yard dash
Be in it for the long run, 'cause you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

Dance With Who Brung You
 
 

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

I had a friend from Texas, he really had some style
He sang that good old Western Swing and drove 'em wild
Then a talent scout from Vegas said "Boy, dress and sing this way"
And in one short year he was broke and in L.A.

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

You gotta be real careful what you wish for
'cause you just might get the whole darn thing
Be sure what you want is something you can use
Or you might wind up out there, just singing the Blues

You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Don't be a fickle fool
You came here with a gal, who's always been your pal
Don't leave her for the first unattached girl
It just ain't cool
You got to dance with who brung you, swing with who swung you
Life ain't no forty-yard dash
Be in it for the long run
'cause in the long run you'll have more fun
If you dance with who brung you to the bash

If you dance with who brung you to the bash
Dance with who brung you to the bash

Lyrics by Ray Benson.
Recorded by Asleep At The Wheel.
 

Comments

Several of these lyrics do not jive with my recording of Ray Benson and
Asleep at the Wheel singing this song. The recording is "The Very Best of
Asleep at the Wheel." There are significant differences I had to fix before I
felt comfortable singing the song in public.
