Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Well the honky tonks in Texas were my natural second home
Where you tip your hat to the ladies and the rose of San Antone
Well I grew up on music that we called western swing
It don't matter who's in Austin, Bob Wills is still the king

4 little ladies promenade go inside of the ring
Get back home and swing your man, then promenade I sing
**When you cross that old Red River that just don't mean a thing
Cause once you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the head two couples square thru 4 hands around and then
You'll make a right hand star and turn it once my friend
Heads star left go one time, to the same old two
Go right & left thru and turn them with a 1/2 sashay you do
You turn thru and get a new corner, go left allemande
You come back one and swing and whirl then promenade the land
It's the home of Willie Nelson, the home of western swing
He'll be the first to tell you, Bob Wills is still the king


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well I can still remember the way things were back then
In spite of all the hard times, I'd live it all again
To hear the Texas Playboys and Tommy Duncan sing
Makes me proud to be from Texas where Bob Wills is still the king

**When you cross that old Red River that just don't mean a thing
Cause once you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king

*If you ain't never been there then I guess you ain't been told
That you can't live in Texas 'less you got a lot of soul
You can hear the Grand Old Opry from Nashville, Tennessee
It's the home of country music, on that we all agree

**It's the home of Willie Nelson, the home of western swing
He'll be the first to tell you, Bob Wills is still the king

Bob Wills Is Still The King
 
 

Well the honky-tonks in Texas were my natural second home
Where you tip your hats to the ladies and the Rose of San Antone
I grew up on music that we called western swing
It don't matter who's in Austin, Bob Wills is still the king

Lord I can still remember, the way things were back then
In spite of all the hard times, I'd live it all again
To hear the Texas Playboys and Tommy Duncan sing
Makes me proud to be from Texas where Bob Wills is still the king

You can hear the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville, Tennessee
It's the home of country music, on that we all agree
But when you cross that ol' Red River "Hoss", that just don't mean a thing
Cause' once you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king

Well if you ain't never been there then I guess you ain't been told
That you just can't live in Texas unless you got a lot of soul
It's the home of Willie Nelson, the home of western swing
He'll be the first to tell you, Bob Wills is still the king

Lyrics by Waylon Jennings.
