Tennessee Stud   (Red Boot Star 1329)   Ralph Kornegay
OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Along about 1825, I left Tennessee very much alive
I never would have gotten through the Arkansas mud
If I hadn't been ridin' a Tennessee stud

Circle left
The Tennessee stud was long and lean
Left allemande, swing your own and promenade
He had the nerve and he had the blood
And there never was a hoss like the Tennessee stud


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Sides square thru 4 hands you do
Four hands around and then swing thru
Boys run to the right and ferris wheel
Now square thru 3 and then pass thru
Left allemande and promenade the ring
He had the nerve and he had the blood
And there never was a hoss like the Tennessee stud


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I looped right back across Arkansas
I whopped her brother and I whopped her paw
I found the girl with the golden hair
And she was a ridin' the Tennessee mare

Circle left


CLOSER    Basic

Pretty little baby on the cabin floor
A little hoss colt playin' round the door
I loved the girl with the golden hair
And the Tennessee stude loved the Tennessee mare
