Itís All Going to Pot†† (Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard) - STING 21706   (Al Stevens)

 

 (Opener): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE:

Itís all going to pot - whether we like it or not

The best I can tell - the worldís gone to hell

And weíre sure gonna miss it a lot - ALLEMANDE and WEAVE

All the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tennessee - just couldn't hit the spot

I gotta hundred dollar bill, says

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† † - you can keep your pills - itís all going to pot

 

 

†(Figure): HEADS PROMENADE HALFWAY - walk right in SQUARE THRU I say now

Go all the way around - a RIGHT AND LEFT THRU - VEER LEFT- †then FERRIS WHEEL

CENTRES SWEEP A QUARTER - and then LEAD RIGHT - SWING the Corner PROMENADE her

I gotta hundred dollar bill, friend

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††  - you can keep your pills, itís all goin' to pot

 

 

†(Middle Break): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

I thought Iíd found me a girl - sweetest little thing in the world

But all my jokes went up in smoke

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††  - when I caught her makin' eyes at Merle

 

 

†(Closer): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE:

That, sweet little honey - with her eye on your money

She's gonna take every penny you got

I said she's never gonna get it - 'cause I've already spent it

Yep, it's all goin' to pot

 

 

 (Tag): SWING your Girl -

 - friend - you can keep your pills, 'cause itís all goin' to pot

 

 

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

 

Well, itís all going to pot

Whether we like it or not

The best I can tell - the worldís gone to hell

And weíre sure gonna miss it a lot

 

All of the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tennessee

It just couldn't hit the spot

I gotta hundred dollar bill, friend  - you can keep your pills

'Cause itís all going to pot

 

That cackle-bobble-head-in-a-box

Must think I'm dumb as a rock

Readin' daily news - while I'm kickin' off my shoes

It's scarin' me outta my socks

 

The Red Headed Stranger I'm not

But buddy, let me tell you what

If you ask ol' Will, he'll tell ya here's the deal

Friends, it's all goin' to pot

 

Well I thought I had found me a girl

Sweetest little thing in the world

But all my jokes went up in smoke

When I caught her makin' eyes at Merle

 

He said, sweet little honey - with her eye on your money

She's gonna take every penny you got

I said she's never gonna get it - 'cause I've already spent it

Merle, it's all goin' to pot

 

Itís all going to pot

Whether we like it or not

The best I can tell - the worldís gone to hell

And weíre all gonna miss it a lot

 

I gotta hundred dollar bill - you can keep your pills, friend

'Cause itís all goin' to pot
