Mississippi
John Phillips 1970
  (Wagon Wheel 923)   Bob Ruff

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Early in the morning, I hitch a ride down to New Orleans
Wan to find myself a little Cajun Queen

Walk around your corner girl, see saw your baby
Men star right, once around I say
Find the corner girl and go left allemande
Do a dosado and promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade and you go halfway
2 & 4 do the right & left thru and turn I say
Go forward, dosado, now face the corner, swing her
Left allemande and weave the ring
(Music interlude)
Do a dosado and promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Sipping a beer on Bourbon Street, I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me
