OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain you turn with your girl
You chain your lady right back home
Join hands and circle to the left around the river
Left allemande and you weave the ring
Fishin' line strung across the Louisiana river
Swing your girl and promenade along
There's traps in the swamp catchin' anything I can
I gotta make a livin' I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Down the middle and square thru
You get 4 hands around the ring you do
Go all the way and do a right & left thru
Veer to the left and the couples circulate
You 1/2 tag, follow your neighbor and spread
Swing the corner girl and promenade the ring
There's traps in the swamp catchin' anything I can
I gotta make a livin' I'm a Louisiana man


TAG

I gotta make a livin' I'm a Louisiana man
I gotta make a livin' I'm a Louisiana man
I gotta make a livin' I'm a Louisiana man
