Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I looked for trouble and I found it, son
Straight down the barrel of the longneck gun

Allemande the corner, come home, dosado
Allemande the corner, gonna weave her and go
Ain't livin' long like this
Dosado and promenade her
Ain't livin' long like this, will I baby?


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 around you know
Heads promenade about halfway go
Down the middle, star thru, pass thru, allemande
You allemande that corner, gonna weave the ring
Ain't livin' long like this
Dosado and promenade her
Ain't livin' long like this, will I baby?

Ain't Living Long Like This
 
 

I looked for trouble and I found it son
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun
I'd like to run but I don't think I can
You make one move and you're a dead man, friend
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back
And left me reeling on a steel rail rack
They got 'em all in the jailhouse, baby
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives
Son of a carhop and some all night dives
Dad drove a stock car to an early death
All I remember was a drunk man's breath
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

You know the story how the wheel goes 'round
Don't let them take you to the man downtown
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse, baby
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

I live with Angel, she's a roadhouse queen
Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee
I want to love her but I don't know how
I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

You know the story about the jailhouse rock
Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
They got 'em all in the jailhouse, baby
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?

Lyrics by Rodney Crowell.
Recorded by Emmylou Harris; Waylon Jennings.
