Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Pulled out of Linden, Texas two days and nights ago
Been livin' on Cokes and burgies till the white of my eyes don't show

Walk around your corner, see saw your own
Left allemande and weave the ring you roam
*'cept for you sweet Melinda, my wife
Dosado, promenade Melinda home
'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most of my life


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Two more hours of daylight, it's startin' to rain again
A sign up ahead says "welcome to Paradise, population 10"


*Well me and this truck and that old white line stumblin' on and on
Like three old drinkin' buddies comin' home at dawn


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two couples square thru 4 hands you know
Make a right hand star once around you go
Heads left hand star in the middle, turn it one time for me
Meet the outside two with a right & left thru once you see
Veer to the left and ferris wheel, pass thru and swing
Swing Melinda and promenade that ring
'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most of my life


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four little ladies chain 3/4 around you go
Roll away and circle left around you know
The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler cuts through me like a knife
Left allemande gonna weave the ring around tonight
'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
Dosado, promenade Melinda home
'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most of my life

Sweet Melinda Lyrics ID: 882

Pulled out of Linden, Texas
Two days and nights ago
I've been livin' on pills and burgies
Till the whites of my eyes don't show

Southbound headlights are makin' me blind
I'm too damn tired to blink
My toes are numb and my brain's gone dumb
And I can just barely think

Sweet Melinda, my wife
The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler
Cuts through me like a knife
'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most all of my life

Two more hours of daylight
It's startin' to rain again
A sign up ahead says "Welcome to Paradise
Population Ten"

Well me and this truck and that old white line
Stumblin' on and on
Like three old drinkin' buddies
Comin' home at dawn

'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler
Cuts through me like a knife
'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most all of my life

'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler
Cuts through me like a knife
'Cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife
I been ridin' on empty most all of my life

I been ridin' on empty most all of my life

Lyrics by Steve Gillette and David MacKechnie.
Recorded by John Denver.
