Cherokee Maiden
Merle Haggard 1942
  (Chaparral 803)   Scott Smith

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four little ladies promenade once around the ring
Get back home swing there with your man
Join hands circle left, move it round you go
Left allemande that corner weave the ring
A little indian pow wow, hoi hoi hey, until you meet her
You do a dosado and promenade now
Straight as an arrow flies, we'll fly to paradise
My little chick-a-dee, my little cherokee maiden and me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade travel half around that ring
The sides dosado, back to back there
Star thru, pass thru, the corner lady swing
Left allemande that corner and weave the ring
A little indian rain dance, hoi hoi hey, until you meet her
Do a dosado and promenade now
Straight as an arrow flies, we'll fly to paradise
My little chick-a-dee, my little cherokee maiden and me
