AIN’T BACK YET      ESP-1141

OPENER 


Circle now. Well I heard a song about a ramblin’ man.

Bought a guitar and I started a band.

Left Allemande turn your partner right

And now the men star left and roll it ‘round tonight.

You turn your partner by the right hand ‘round

Allemande the corner, Promenade around

I got a gig at a local Am Vet

I was gone, gone, and I ain’t back, yet.


FIGURE 


Heads [sides] you square through four hands you go

‘Round the corner lady DoSaDo.

Swing Thru, then the boy Run right

Bend the line, boys Walk, girls Dodge

Scoot Back and the corner Swing

Swing the girl and Promenade that ring

For the worse, or for the better

Well I was gone, gone, gone forever.


BREAK 


Circle. ‘69 bored, out and all jacked up

A quarter mile that was all it was

Left Allemande turn your partner right

And now the men star left and roll it Ôround tonight.

You turn your partner by the right hand Ôround

Allemande the corner, Promenade around

I burned the cool off of that Corvette

And I was gone, gone and I ain’t back yet.


CLOSER


Circle. She had a straight out of Hollywood smile

We missed it all by a country mile.

Left Allemande turn your partner right

And now the men star left and roll it ‘round tonight.

You turn your partner by the right hand ‘round

Allemande the corner, Promenade around

Went out one night for some cigarettes

And I was gone, gone and I ain’t back, yet.


TAG:  Gone, gone and I ain’t back, yet.


Gone, gone, gone.
