Cue Sheet


Circle left
It's raining down in Houston, got a hole in both my shoes
Baby kicked me on the street and said "I'm through with you"

Those men star right and turn it once you go
Allemande left with the corner and weave the ring you know
Well I need one good ride and I'll be satisfied
Dosado and promenade her
If we roll all night it should be coming into sight
Oh come on Oklahoma borderline

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go just halfway you know
Sides square thru count me 4 hands around you go
Meet that corner lady, do a right & left thru
Eight chain 6 walking through the square you do
Well I need one good ride then I'll be satisfied
Swing a little corner girl and promenade now
If we roll all night it should be coming into sight
So come on Oklahoma borderline


So come on Oklahoma borderline

Oklahoma Borderline Lyrics ID: 990

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

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


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


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