Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Four ladies chain across and go
Chain those ladies right back home
Left allemande, come back dosado
Sides face, grand square
*Cab driver, drive by Mary's place
I just want a chance to see her face
**Don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands and go
Split the sides (heads) around one, make a line and go
Pass thru, ends fold, do the right & left thru
Dosado and do an eight chain four
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place
Swing the corner, promenade
**Don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads (sides) promenade halfway,
Down the middle square thru I say
Make a right hand star, turn it one time and then
Star by the left, go around one and then
Right & left thru, pass thru, trade by
Swing and promenade
**I only wish we could have had a talk
Cab driver, once more 'round the block


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*That's where I laid my future at her feet
Cab driver, once more down the street


*Then, things will be just like they were before
Cab driver, wait here by the door


*I hope God sends me another one of my own
Cab driver, better take me home

Cab Driver
 
 

Cab driver, drive by Mary's place
I'd like to have a chance to see her face
Please don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place

Cab driver, once more 'round the block
Never mind the ticking of the clock
I only wish we could have had a talk
Cab driver, once more 'round the block

Cab driver, once more down the street
There's the little place we use to meet
That's where I laid my future at her feet
Cab driver, once more down the street

Cab driver, a-wait here by the door
Perhaps I'll hold her in my arms once more
Then, things will be just like they were before
Cab driver, wait here by the door

Cab driver, better take me home
I guess that, I was meant to be alone
I hope God sends me another one of my own
Cab driver, better take me home

Cab driver, better take me home

Lyrics by C. Carson Parks.
Recorded by The Mills Brothers (1968).
