If Heaven Ain't Like Dixie
Hank Williams, Jr. 1981
  (Quadrille 823)   Gary Mahnken

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*If heaven ain't a lot like Dixie I don't wanta go
If heaven ain't a lot like Dixie I just wanta stay home
I was one of the chosen few to be born in Alabam
I'm just like my daddy's song, I'm proud of who I am

Four little ladies promenade go walkin' around the ring
Get back home and swing and whirl and promenade her home
If they don't have a Grand Ole Opry like they do in Tennessee
If heaven ain't a lot like Dixie I just wanta stay home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I've got wild honey trees and crazy little weeds growing round my shack
These dusty roads ain't streets of gold but I'm happy right where I'm at
All these pretty little southern belles are a country boy's dream
They ain't got wings or halos but they're sure lookin' good to me


*I was one of the chosen few to be born in Alabam
I'm just like my daddy's song, I'm proud of who I am
I went through a lot of good women and shook old Jim Beam's hand
If I never see the pearly gates, I've walked through the promised land


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade halfway around you go
Down the center and square thru 4 hands around you know
Go all the way around and then you circle up four halfway you see
Veer to the left and the couples circulate one time for me
Wheel & deal and pass to the center and then
Square thru 3/4 round, swing the corner, promenade
If they don't have a Grand Ole Opry like they do in Tennessee
If heaven ain't a lot like Dixie I just wanta stay home
