Mississippi
John Phillips 1970
  (Gold Wing 192)   Brian Freed

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Early in the mornin', she hitched a ride down to Louisville
Holdin' onto a hundred dollar bill
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby
Yeah, she looked good, like a lady

Allemande left and weave
(Music Interlude)
Swing and promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway
Sides (Heads) do the right & left thru
Square thru go four hands you go
And do an eight chain four
(Music Interlude)
Swing the corner, promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Sippin' on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me
Have a seat and take a load off your feet and she said, yes
So I said, I like your dress

Allemande left and weave
(Music Interlude)
Swing and promenade
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'?
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'?


TAG

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'?
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'?
