Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across the ring
Join hands circle left go moving round
Allemande left, allemande thar forward two and make that star
Men swing in a right hand star and roll it round
Shoot that star and then dosado around your own
Left allemande, come back and promenade
I never loved a woman
Like Susan when she tried


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around
Meet the corner girl, dosado
Swing thru and then boys run to the right
Half tag the line, face to the right, box the gnat
Square thru 3 hands to the corner girl
Left allemande, come back and promenade
I never loved a woman
Like Susan when she tried

Susan When She Tried
 
 

I got over Charlotte Thompson, Goldie Johnson
Lord, they done me wrong
I took it hard with Peggy Harper
She hurt me bad, but not for long
There's just one I remember
Makes me feel funny down inside
I'd trade 'em all for just one hour
Of Susan when she tried

No there's never been a woman
Who could make me weak inside
And give me what I needed
Like Susan when she tried

It gets worse in the summer
When the nights are hot and long
And it's bad in December
When they play those Christmas songs
So if you ask me and I don't tell you
Bet your sweet bottom dollar I lied
'Cause there's never been one better
Than Susan when she tried

No there's never been a woman
Who could make me weak inside
And give me what I needed
Like Susan when she tried

No there's never been a woman
Who could make me weak inside
And give me what I needed
Like Susan when she tried

No there's never been a woman
Who could make me weak inside
And give me what I needed
Like Susan when she tried

Lyrics by Don Reid.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers; Elvis Presley; others.
