Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies star by the right full around the square
Turn your partner by the left, dosado with the corner there
Come back home box the gnat, pull her by I say
Left allemande, go forward two, go right & left that way
Turn back one, pull her by and you go left allemande
Dosado with your partner, then promenade that land
*She's the kind that you can't find a ramblin' through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade half way around and side (head) ladies chain
Heads (sides) to the middle, dosado go all the way around and then
You spin the top in the middle you do and when you're set to go
**Well turn thru, star by the left with the sides (heads) around you go
Go all the way around, men turn around and you go left allemande
Pass by one swing & whirl then promenade the land
I knew some day that I'd come back, I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the hometown of my heart


**Box the gnat, pull her by, star left around you go


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*From Portland east to Portland west, back along the line
I'm goin' back to the place that's the best, the old hometown of mine


*Eight more miles to Louisville, it's comin' into view
Eight more miles down the road, I'll never more be blue


TAG

Now I'm back in Louisville, I'll stay right here with you

Eight More Miles To Louisville
 
 

I've traveled over this country wide seeking fortune fair
Up and down the two coast lines I've traveled everywhere
From Portland East to Portland West back along the line
I'm going now to the place that's best that old hometown of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

There's bound to be a gal somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a traveling through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home
A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam
The place that's right for that love sight is in those bluegrass hills
Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Lyrics by Louis Marshall "Grandpa" Jones.
