OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain straight across that ring
Join hands, circle to the left I sing
Rollaway and circle to the left and then
Rollaway, allemande and weave around the ring
I got fishing lines strung across Louisiana River
Dosado your lady, promenade her home
Setting traps in the swamps catching anything I can
Gotta make a living, I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you go
Round the corner lady do a dosado
Spin chain thru, girls circulate twice
Don't keep pappa waiting cause you know it ain't nice
Turn thru, allemande, come back a dosado
Swing the corner lady, promenade her home
Muskrat hides gottem hanging by the dozen
Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat


TAG

Gotta make a living, I'm a Louisiana man
