Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*High on the mountain, baby, what do you see?
Bear tracks, bear tracks, looking back at me

Left allemande that corner one, dosado your own
Left allemande that corner lady, weave the ring you go
Big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
You swing your lady round and round, promenade you go
Ain't never been caught, he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I saved up my money and bought me some bees
They started making honey way up in the trees


*Winter's coming on and it's twenty below
The river's froze over so where can he go?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head pair you square thru, go moving four hands round
All the way around, dosado the corner one you know
Swing thru well two by two, spin the top, my friend
Boys move up, right & left thru, turn the girl and then
Square thru and go now 3/4 round that ring
Swing the corner lady, promenade that pretty thing
Ain't never been caught, he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Ole Slew Foot
 
 

High on the mountain what do you see
Bear tracks, bear tracks lookin' back at me
You better get your rifles boys before it's too late
The bear's got a little pig and headed through the gate

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

I saved up my money and I bought me some bees
They started makin' honey way up in the trees
I chopped down the tree but my honey's all gone
Ole Slew Foot's done made himself at home

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Winter's comin' on and it's twenty below
The river's froze over so where can he go
We'll chase him in the gully and we'll run him in the well
And shoot him at the bottom and we'll listen to him yell

He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Doin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
He never been caught and he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Lyrics by Howard Hausey and Eddie Manney.
Recorded by Bill Monroe.
