Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Cause there ain't no California
Where the water tastes like wine

Left allemande, turn the partner by the right a full turn
Boys star left, turn that partner by the right now
Left allemande and promenade
Ain't no big rock candy mountain
Where you feel good all the time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four now
Round that corner do a dosado
Touch 1/4, scoot back
Boys run and a right & left thru
Flutter wheel across the ring go
Reverse that flutter, promenade
Listen to the freight train
Screamin' through the night

Where you feel good all the time

Ain't No California
 
 

Well I live my life on highways, from sea to shining sea
So listen to my story, save yourself some agony
Forget that urge to wander, like a shadow on the ground
Find yourself a woman, get a job and settle down

Cause there ain't no California, where the water tastes like wine
Ain't no Big Rock Candy Mountain, where you feel good all the time
I ain't found that old blue bayou, thou I roamed my whole life long
Searching for my blue heaven, heard somewhere it's called home

So don't you listen to those freight trains, let them scream into the night
Don't watch those greyhound buses, semi-trucks and airplane lines
Let someone else be lonely, let someone else be cold
Let someone else make sure those lies and stories all get told

Cause there ain't no California, where the water tastes like wine
Ain't no Big Rock Candy Mountain, where you feel good all the time
I ain't found that old blue bayou, thou I roamed my whole life long
Searching for my blue heaven, heard somewhere it's called home

Cause there ain't no California, where the water tastes like wine
Ain't no Big Rock Candy Mountain, where you feel good all the time
I ain't found that old blue bayou, thou I roamed my whole life long
Searching for my blue heaven, heard somewhere it's called home

Lyrics by Sterling Whipple.
Recorded by Mel Tillis.
