OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Well he walks out in the arena all dressed up to the brim
Said he just came down from a place called Highland Rim
Well he said he came to ride the horse, the one they call "The Brute"
But he didn't look like a cowboy in his continental suit

4 ladies chain you turn the girl and then
Chain the ladies right back home and promenade my friend
He pulled himself up on the back of the horse they called "The Brute"
Set like he was born there in his continental suit


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well I turned around to look at Jim and he was watching me
He said I don't believe the crazy thing I think I see
But I think I see the outlaw, the one they call "The Brute"
Ridden by a cowboy in a continental suit


*The moral of this story, never judge by what they wear
Underneath some ragged clothes could be a millionaire
Everybody listen, don't be fooled by this galute
This sure enough bronc-buster in a continental suit


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Head (side) couples cross trail thru, separate and then
Go around two and make a line, go up and back my friend
Ends only pass thru and then a U-turn back
Everybody star thru and then California twirl
Right & left thru, you turn the girl then roll a half sashay
Swing that corner lady there and promenade that way
The stranger didn't give an inch, he came to ride "The Brute"
And he came to ride the buckskin in a continental suit

Cowboy In The Continental Suit  (1964)

Well, he walked out in the arena all dressed up to the brim
Said he's just came down from a place called Highland Rim
Well, he said he came to ride the horse the one they called The Brute
But he didn't look like a cowboy in his Continental Suit.

We snickered at the way he dressed but he never said a word
He walked on by the rest of us as if he hadn't heard
A thousand bucks went to the man that could ride this wild cayuse
A meaner horse was never born than the one they called "The Brute."

The horse that he was lookin' for was in chute number eight
He walked up very slowly, put his hand upon the gate
We knew he was a thoroughbred when he pulled a sack of Dukes
From the inside pocket of his Continental Suit.

He rolled himself a Quirley and he lit it standing there
He blew himself a smoke ring and he watched it disappear
We thought he must be crazy when he opened up the gate
Standing just inside was fifteen hundred pounds of hate.

The buckskin tried to run him down but the stranger was too quick
He stepped aside and threw his arms around the horse's neck
He pulled himself upon the back of the horse they called "The Brute"
Sat like he was born there in his continental suit.

The Brute's hind end was in the air, his front end on the ground,
Kickin' and a-squealin' - trying to shake the stranger down
But the stranger didn't give an inch - he came to ride "The Brute"
And he came to ride the buckskin in a continental suit.

Well, I turned around to look at Jim and he was watching me
He said, "I don't believe the crazy things I think I see
But I think I see the outlaw, the one they call 'The Brute'
Ridden by a cowboy in a continental suit."

The Brute came to a standstill - ashamed that he'd been rode
By a city cowboy in some continental clothes
The stranger took his money and we don't know where he went
We don't know where he came from and we haven't seen him since.

The moral of this story - never judge by what they wear
Underneath some ragged clothes could be a millionaire
Ev'rybody, listen - don't be fooled by this galoot
The sure enough bronc-buster in a Continental Suit.

Composed by Marty Robbins.
