All Aboard
  (Chaparral 314)   Gary Shoemake


Circle left
Well now the Union Pacific and the Overland Express
The Frisco and the Santa Fe, they're the biggest and the best

You're gonna walk around that corner girl, gonna weave around you roam
Ride the train, ride the train
Swing your lady, promenade again
Sleeping in a box car when it rains
Ride the train, ride the train

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the head 2 couples square thru on the Wabash Cannonball
You're gonna find that corner lady, dosado around you all
You swing thru and then the boys run to the right you know
Do a 1/2 tag and scoot back boys across you go
Now boys run to the right, slide thru with a right pull by
Allemande left new corner girl, you're gonna promenade you fly
*Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear that lonesome hobo call
No chances can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball


*On that Chattanooga Choo Choo
Come on and choo choo me home

*Well gonna have a jubilee way down in Memphis, Tennessee
We're gonna shout hallelujah all the way

*Hey look at her run, look at her sail
She's Dallas bound, bound, bound, Fire Ball Mail

MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
Well look a yonder coming, coming down the railroad track
It's the Orange Blossom Special

Men star right & roll it once around and then
Allemande left that corner girl, come back swing your own
Well the sides face, grand square
Well the Orange Blossom Special and the Wabash Cannonball
The Chattanooga Choo Choo, hey this hobo's seen them all


Ride the train, ride the train
