Mississippi
John Phillips 1970
  (Dance Ranch 669)   Al Stevens

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Why early in the morning gonna hitch a ride down to New Orleans
I wanta find myself a little cajun queen

Walk around that corner girl see saw your baby
And then boys star by the right one time I say, easy boy
Find the corner girl and then left allemande
Do a dosado, promenade
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two you promenade and you go halfway
Do the right & left thru and you turn I say
Dosado full around, face the corner, swing her
Left allemande, gonna weave the ring, go get 'em boy
(*Guitar interlude)
Dosado, promenade, you know
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


(*2nd time: piano, 3rd time: guitar, 4th time: piano)


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Oh, sippin' on a beer on Bourbon street I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Walk around that corner girl, see saw your baby
Why men star by the right one time I say, easy boy
Find the corner wahannie and go left allemande
Dosado, promenade the land
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind
