Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

1 & 3 turn thru, go around one you do
Into the middle pass thru, turn thru, pass thru
Centers in, cast off 3/4 round you go
Then allemande left with the old left hand
Grand right and left you know
They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
I could never be a poor boy
If I could dance with a dolly like you


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around you go
Spin chain thru you now, keep 'em turning don't be slow
All 8 keep smiling, turn thru with me
Allemande left with the old left hand, grand right & left
Gee, they call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
Dosado her, then promenade
I could never be a poor boy
If I could dance with a dolly like you

Poor Boy
 
 

They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
But I ain't lonesome and I ain't blue
'Cause I could never be a poor boy
As long as I've got a dolly like you

Ain't got a crust, ain't got a cent
Can't buy a jug, can't pay the rent
I got a heartfull of dreams
And a lot of memories
And that's enough for me

Can't buy a house, can't buy a lot
Ain't got a bean, I ain't got a pot
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Don't have a pig, don't have a cow
I don't have a horse to pull a plow
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Lyrics by Vera Matson.
Recorded by Elvis Presley.
