Mississippi
John Phillips 1970
  (Wagon Wheel 603)   Ken Bower

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Early in the morning gonna hitch a ride down to New Orleans
Wanta find myself a little Cajun Queen

Walk around that corner gal, see saw your baby
Men star right, once around I say (easy there boy)
Find the corner girl and go left allemande
Do a dosado and promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


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

One and three promenade, go halfway
Do a right and left thru and turn I say
Dosado go full around, now face the corner girl, swing her
Left allemande and weave the ring (music interlude)
Do a dosado and promenade
And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


*Sipping a beer on Bourbon Street, I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me
