Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I've gotta crow, I wanta pick with you
Just like last night when the feathers flew

Allemande left your corner, dosado your own
Men star left go once around
Turn your partner by the right, your corner allemande
Come back home and swing your own
Promenade the land
**You're runnin' wild, kickin' up your heels
Leavin' me at home with a hand full of bills


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Now I don't know, but I've heard say that
Every little dog is going to have its day

**You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet

*Caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you, should have left you right then

**I'm not a-gonna leave you, but I still get sore
When you come home a-feelin' for the knob on the door


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4 round
Heads promenade, go halfway around
Sides right & left thru, turn and roll away
All join hands, circle left that way
4 boys square thru 4 hands I say
Swing your corner lady and all promenade
I can't live without you till the day that I die
Well tell me why baby, why do I cry baby, cry


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade go halfway around
Same 2 right & left thru, turn the ladies now
Star thru and pass thru, do a dosado
Make a wave and ladies trade, then recycle, Joe
Pass thru, trade by, swing that corner maid
Promenade her home you go
I can't live without you till the day that I die
Well tell me why baby, why do I cry baby, cry

Why Baby Why
 
 

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why

Well, I got a crow I wanna pick with you
Just like last time when the feathers flew
You're runnin' wild a-kickin' up your heels
A-leavin' me home with a hand full of bills

I can't live without you and you know it's true
But there's no livin' with you so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin', get as tight as I can
And maybe by then you'll 'ppreciate a good man

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
I can't live without you 'til the day that I die
So tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why

Well, now I don't know, but I've heard say
That ever' little dog is a-gonna have his day
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
'Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet

I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you, but I should'a left then
Now I'm too old to leave you, but I still get sore
When you come home a-feelin' for the knob on the door

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why

Tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Lyrics by Darrell Edwards and George Jones.
Recorded by George Jones.
