Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade and walk inside of that floor
Home you go and swing that man around once more
You join hands and circle, gonna move it you know
Left allemande that corner and weave the ring
It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Swing your lady round and promenade her son
Keeping up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doing a little thing called the hillbilly rock


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru and take them four hands you know
Around that corner lady you do a dosado
Swing thru tonight and then the boys run right
Bend that line and then a right & left thru
Flutter wheel and get across that floor
Slide thru and swing and promenade once more
Keeping up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doing a little thing called the hillbilly rock


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(musical interlude 32 beats)
Four ladies promenade inside that floor
Get on home and swing and promenade once more
Keeping up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doing a little thing called the hillbilly rock

Hillbilly Rock
 
 

It comes from Mississippi, and down in Alabam'
Creepin' like a fever all across the land
From deep in the Delta on the Louisiana shore
The people got to have it, they wanna hear some more

It's the Hillbilly Rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock

Some say it came from Memphis down in Tennessee
Or it drifted in from Georgia about 1953
Just as long as it's greasy, as long as it's fast
As long as it's pumpin' honey, it's gonna last

It's the Hillbilly Rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock

Way back in old Kentucky where the bluegrass grows
Through the Carolinas on them dirt red roads
Burnin' like a fire runnin' wild in the woods
From Arkansas to Texas, it sounds so good

It's the Hillbilly Rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock

So when the heat starts to risin' and you gotta blow some steam
Take a ride down the river, you'll see just what I mean
The juke joint's jumpin, when that cat goes on
The whole place is shakin', there's a-something goin' on

It's the Hillbilly Rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin' from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock
Doin' a little thing called the Hillbilly Rock

Lyrics by Paul Kennerley.
Recorded by Marty Stuart.
