Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

The 4 ladies chain across the ring
You turn around & chain them home again
Join hands & circle go walking round the ring
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring
Go in & out around until you meet
Swing and then you promenade
I'm as lost as a leaf in a gale
I think I got a tiger by the tail


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way and go
You square thru in the middle 4 hands & then
Face the sides & do the right & left thru
You pass thru & trade by, go left allemande
Come back & swing & promenade
I'm as lost as a leaf in a gale
I think I got a tiger by the tail

Tiger By The Tail
 
 

I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
Well, I'm a losing weight and a turnin' mighty pale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

Well, I thought the day I met you
You were meek as a lamb
Just the kind to make my dreams and plans
But now the pace we're livin'
Takes the wind from my sail
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
Well, I'm a losing weight and a turnin' mighty pale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

Every night you drag me where
The bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail
It's plain to see
I won't be much when you get through with me
Well, I'm a losing weight and a turnin' mighty pale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

Lyrics by Buck Owens and Harland Howard.
