Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle to the left
Oh, those Highway 40 blues
I've walked holes in both my shoes

Left allemande and box the gnat
Girls star left once around inside the track
Box the gnat, go right & left grand
Wasted time and money, too
Dosado and promenade her
My eyes are filled with better tears, I ain't been home in many years
I've got the Highway 40 blues


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Side two ladies chain and then turn the girls
Heads lead right and circle 4 make a line
Go forward 8 and back and then, right & left thru
Roll away a half sashay, partner hinge
Swing thru, girls circulate two times
Swing corner, promenade her
My heart is filled with love for you, Dixieland I sure miss you
I've got those Highway 40 blues


TAG

Dixieland I sure miss you
I've got those Highway 40 blues

Highway 40 Blues
 
 

Well, these Highway Forty blues,
I've walked holes in both my shoes.
Counted the days since I've been gone,
And I'd love to see the lights of home.
Wasted time and money too;
Squandered youth in search of truth.
But in the end I had to lose,
Lord above, I've paid my dues.
Got the Highway Forty blues.

The highway called when I was young,
Told me lies of things to come.
Fame and fortune lies ahead!
That's what the billboard lights had said.
Shattered dreams, my mind is numb,
My money's gone, stick out my thumb.
My eyes are filled with bitter tears,
Lord, I ain't been home in years.
Got the Highway Forty blues.

You know, I've rambled all around,
Like a rolling stone, from town to town.
Met pretty girls I have to say,
But none of them could make me stay.
Well, I've played the music halls and bars,
Had fancy clothes and big fine cars:
Things a country boy can't use,
Dixieland I sure miss you.
Got the Highway Forty blues.

Lyrics by Larry Cordle.
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs.
