I've Been Working On The Railroad
Sandhills Sixteen (1927) 1894
  (TNT 287)   Don Coy

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've been working on the railroad
All the live long day
I've been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away

Four ladies promenade inside the ring
Back home swing and promenade
Can't you hear the captain shouting
Dinah blow your horn


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around that ring
Walk in square thru 4 hands
Right & left thru, veer left
Ferris wheel, square thru 3 hands
Swing the corner, promenade
Can't you hear the captain shouting
Dinah blow your horn


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow
Dinah won't you blow your horn
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow

Left allemande and weave the ring
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Swing those girls and promenade that ring
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on that ole banjo


TAG

Strumming on that ole banjo
