OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Don't ask me where she came from
All I know is that she gave me back my pride
She reached a hand to save a man
That slid about as far as he could slide

Circle left
She probably came from heaven
Who else could have sent her but the Lord?

Allemande left and promenade
I'm not dancin' with those demons
I ain't dealin' with that devil anymore


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands round that ring
You're gonna go, slide thru, curlique
Scoot back my friend, boys run
Swing thru, boys run
1/2 tag, trade and roll, right hand pull by
Allemande left, swing and promenade
I'm not dancin' with those demons
I ain't dealin' with that devil anymore


MIDDLE BREAK    Plus

Head ladies center teacup chain
I lived for the whiskey and the goodtime ladies of the night
Till the whiskey took control and left me waltzin'
With those witches in my mind

Circle left
Imaginary bottles fill my empty pockets
Lying there on the floor

Allemande left and promenade
I'm not dancin' with those demons
I ain't dealin' with that devil anymore


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Don't ask me where she came from
All I know is that she gave me back my pride

Walk all around your corner, seesaw your partner
Men star right
Allemande left that corner, swing your lady, promenade
I'm not dancin' with those demons
I ain't dealin' with that devil anymore

Get out of here devil

Dealing With The Devil

Yeah I used to run with whiskey
Stay out with the ladies of the night
'Til the whiskey took control
And left me waltzing with them witches in my mind

Now imaginary bottles won't be everywhere
To haunt me like before
I'm not dancing with them demons, no
Dealing with that devil anymore

You can go to sleep my weary lady
Heaven knows you've done your chore
You were sent down here to save me
I'm not dancing with them demons
Dealing with that devil anymore

I don't know where you came from
All I know is that you brought me back my pride
Reached out a hand and touched a man
Who strayed about as far as he could slide

And you must have come from heaven girl,
Cause who else could have sent you but the Lord
I'm not dancing with those demons now
Dealing with that devil anymore

You can go to sleep my weary lady
Heaven knows you've done your chore
You were sent down here to save me
I'm not dancing with them demons
Dealing with that devil anymore

You must have been sent down to save me
I'm not dancing with those demons now,
Dealing with that devil anymore

You can go to sleep my weary lady
Heaven knows you've done your chore
You were sent down here to save me
I'm not dancing with them demons now,
Dealing with that devil anymore

Lyrics by Eddy Raven and Sanger D. Shafer.
Recorded by Eddy Raven; Merle Haggard.
