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, promenadeMelinda home 'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife I been ridin' on empty most of my life
*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, promenadeMelinda home 'cept for you, sweet Melinda, my wife I been ridin' on empty most of my life
