Set Out Tonight For New Orleans
Neil Diamond 1983
  (Roadrunner 503)   Randy Dougherty

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner, come back a dopaso
Turn partner left, corner right, partner left you know
Make an allemande thar and the men back up like a paddle wheel a turning
Slip the clutch, left allemande & weave on down the muddy
Proud and strong and made to be free
Dosado, promenade her for me
I got the sun in my eyes, wind in my face
And it's good just to be alive
I'm gonna set out tonight for New Orleans
Won't sleep 'til I arrive


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Heads only roll half sashay
Sides forward & back, sides lead to the right
Dosado, make an ocean wave, swing thru three hands
Scoot back & then, swing the corner waiting there
Do an allemande left & come back one promenade the square
I got the sun in my eyes, wind in my face
And it's good just to be alive
I'm gonna set out tonight for New Orleans
Won't sleep 'til I arrive


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
Ah look at the way she's waving her sail
A wonderous sight to see
People hurry on down from every town
To have a look at the Robert E. Lee

Walk around your corner, see-saw your taw
Allemande left the corner and weave around
Proud and strong, made to be free
Turn thru, allemande left you promenade


TAG

Set out tonight for New Orleans
Won't sleep 'til I arrive


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway you know
Down the middle and square thru four hands around
Right and left thru, veer to the left
Ferris wheel, square thru 3/4 around
Find the corner girl swing
Swing and whirl with the pretty little girl
And promenade the ring


SEQUENCE

Opener, figure twice heads, middle break, figure twice sides, closer, tag
