Louisiana Red Dirt Highway
  (Quadrille 879)   Sam Lowe

OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
Pulled out the driveway past an old tar paper shack
Left allemande that corner, come back you dosado
Men star left, turn thru, left allemande
Come back, swing the girl around and promenade
It's gona be a long time
Before I travel down this red dirt road again


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle
4 hands around the ring you go, dosado
Swing thru and then the boy run right
Ferris wheel in the middle when you pass thru
Right and left thru, roll a half sashay
Swing the corner, promenade
*It's gonna be a long time
Before I travel down this red dirt road again


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Louisiana red dirt highway
I've been down a million times

Men star right and turn it round now
Allemande left and weave the ring
I'm gonna take 'em to the city
Where a man can
swing and promenade
I'm already pretty lonesome
And my tires ain't even slung off all the clay


TAG

I'm already pretty lonesome
And my tires ain't even slung off all the clay


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*And mama done the cookin' and the cleanin'
And taught us what was good
