OPENER

SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE
Out on the road for forty days
Last night in Little Rock...put me in a haze
Sweet...sweet Connie...doin' her act
She had the whole show and that's a natural fact

CIRCLE LEFT
Up all night with Freddie King
ALLEMANDE...you SWING & PROMENADE around this ring
Now these fine ladies...they keep me right
As long as we can make it to the show tonight

FIGURE
HEADS (SIDES) COUPLES PROMENADE HALFWAY my friend
Walk in
PASS THE OCEAN and then you EXTEND
SWING THRU and then the BOYS RUN RIGHT
HALF TAG...SCOOTBACK one time tonight
BOYS RUN again...and then you SLIDE THRU
SWING this Corner PROMENADE her you do
They said, "Come on boys...let's get it on!!"
And we proceeded to (tear that hotel down)

BREAK
SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE
We're an American band
We're an American band
We're coming to your town
We'll help you party it down

ALLEMANDE & WEAVE

We're an American band
We're coming to your town
We'll help you party it down
We're an American band
