Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

4 ladies promenade inside the ring you go
Hey get on home and dosado around
Join hands and make a ring, circle left and then
Left allemande and weave around the town
There's a diesel on my tail, a'makin ninety miles an hour
Dosado and then you'll promenade
I can hear Saint Peter callin', I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two couples promenade halfway round you do
Come down the middle and do a right & left thru
Square thru count to 4 and meet the corner there
Slide thru and circle up 8 hands round
Allemande left that corner and you weave around the circle
Meet a brand new girl and promenade
I can hear Saint Peter callin', I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact, there's a diesel on my tail

Diesel On My Tail
 
 

I just pulled out on the highway in my little foreign car
It was raining and the road was mighty bad
I didn't see that big old diesel but I heard him hit the air
I've a feeling that I might have made him mad

He closed the gap between us, pushed his pedal to the floor
Making ninety in that big old diesel truck
I can hear the names he's calling me above the engine's roar
And the words won't be found in Webster's book

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

I'm huffing and a-puffing and I'm trying to make the grade
And I wish I had some pedals on this car
And I'm slipping and a-sliding and afraid to touch the brakes
For this doodle bug could never stand the jar

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

I'm a-slipping and a-sliding, trying to hold it on the road
And I can tell you I just got to win this race
While I'm trembling and a-shaking, he's blowing on his horn
So close that I could steal his license plate

There's a diesel on my tail making ninety miles an hour
My reflection in my mirror's mighty pale
I can hear Saint Peter calling, I can almost smell the flowers
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail
Can this compact take the impact? There's a diesel on my tail

Lyrics by Jim Fagan.
Recorded by Jim & Jesse.
