Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain now 3/4 'round now
You join hands circle to the left and walk right along
You roll away now, hey circle left
Left allemande that corner, gonna weave that ole ring
Go in and out around until you meet that (pretty little) maid
Dosado one time and then all promenade
Are you from Dixie, I say from Dixie,
Well I'm from Dixie too


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade half way around now
Come down the middle square thru four hands around you go
Everybody swing thru, those boys run right now
Now couples circulate, gonna wheel & deal
Dive thru, square thru 3 hands around you go
Swing your corner once around and all promenade
On down to Dixie, I say to Dixie
Hey I'm from Dixie too


TAG

I'm from Dixie too
(Banjo then drums)
I'm from Dixie too

Are You From Dixie ('Cause I'm From Dixie Too) Lyrics ID: 176

Hello there, stranger! How do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you.
Don't be surprised, you're recognized
I'm no detective, but I've just surmised.
You're from the place where I long to be.
Your smiling face seems to say to me:
"You're from my own land, my sunny homeland,
Tell me can it be?

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me!
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line,
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

It was a way back in eighty-nine,
I crossed the Old Mason Dixon line
Oh! But I've yearned, longed to return
To all the good old pals I left behind.
My home is 'way down in Alabam'
On a plantation near Birmingham,
And one thing's certain I'm surely flirtin'
With those Southbound trains!

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line!
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

Composed by George L. Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by The Blue Sky Boys; many others.
