Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Well, the four little ladies promenade inside the ring you know
Come back home and swing your man a-waitin' there
All join hands, circle left, go movin' round the ring
Find the corner, allemande left and weave the ring
Here she comes, oh look at her roll
There she goes, eatin' that coal

Promenade
Watch her fly, huggin' the rail
Let her by, by, by, Fireball Mail


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Those head (side) couples pass thru then promenade back home
Side (head) couples circle four in time
Go all the way around, 'till you get back home again
Head couples dance forward up and back
Make a right hand star in the middle of the ring and you hurry there
Allemande left come back and you promenade that square
Look at her run, look at her sail
She's Dallas bound, bound, bound, Fireball Mail


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(music)
Well, four girls promenade inside the ring
Run back home, swing your man a-waitin' there
Promenade
Look at her run, look at her sail
She's Dallas bound, bound, bound, Fireball Mail
Look at her run, look at her sail
She's Dallas bound, bound, bound, Fireball Mail

Fireball Mail Lyrics ID: 274

Here she comes - look at her roll
There she goes - eatin' that coal
Watch her fly - look at her sail
Let her by, by, by - it's the Fireball Mail.

CHORUS

Let her go - look at her steam
Hear her blow - whistle and scream
Like a hound - waggin' his tail
Dallas bound, bound, bound - the Fireball Mail.

Engineer - makin' up time
Tracks are clear - look at her climb
See that freight - clearin' the rail
Bet she's late, late, late - the Fireball Mail.

Watch her swerve - look at her sway
Get that curve - out of the way
Watch her fly - look at her sail
Let her by, by, by - the Fireball Mail.

Lyrics by Floyd Jenkins.
Recorded by Roy Acuff.
