Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*It's rainin' down in Houston, I've got holes in both my shoes
Baby put me on the street and said I'm through with you

Walk around your corner lady, seesaw your own
Left allemande with the corner girl, weave around that ring
I need one good ride and I'll be satisfied
Swing your lady round and promenade now
And if we roll all night, she'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline


FIGURE    Mainstream, no progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade 1/2 round you go
Walk in & square thru 4 hands around you know
All the way around a right & left thru that outside two
Slide thru and square thru 4 hands you do
Swing that girl and promenade now
And if we roll all night, she'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I don't need no Texas girl a-doggin' me around
I may be an Okie son, but I've still been to town

*So with 2 bucks in my pocket and my thumb stuck in the wind
When I cross that old Red River boys I won't be back again

Oklahoma Borderline
 
 

Well it's rainin' down in Houston
And I got holes in both my shoes
Baby's put me on the street
She says "I'm through with you"

She thinks I'm gonna miss her
Someone tell her that she's wrong
I'm goin' back to Oklahoma, boys
'Cause that's where I belong

Chorus:
I need one good ride
I'll be satisfied
Come on Oklahoma borderline
If we roll all night
She'll be comin' into sight
Come on Oklahoma borderline

Well now I don't need no Texas girl
Doggin' me around
I may be a Okie, son
But I've still been to town

Well those Oklahoma city girls
They always treat you right
Well tell mama that I'm comin' home (not sure of this line...)
And I'm leavin' out tonight

Chorus

So with two bucks in my pocket
And my thumb stuck in the wind
When I cross Red River, boys
I won't be back again

Give me old back roads and truck stops
And 18 wheels that whine
And some good ol' boy to take me
To that Oklahoma line

Chorus

I caught one good ride
She's comin' into sight
Hello Oklahoma borderline

Lyrics by Vince Gill, Guy Clark and Rodney Crowell.
