Cue Sheet
 

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well 4 ladies promenade one time around you go
Get back and swing, you swing her high and low
Join hands and circle to the left in a ring
Left allemande and you weave the ring
I'm the Texas fiddle man
Swing your lady boy and promenade the land
All I want to do is play, and if you ask me I will say
I'm the Texas fiddle man


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle, go 4 hands round
Go all the way to the corner of the hall do a right & left thru
Veer to the left and the ladies do a hinge, diamond circulate
Flip the diamond, girls trade and then explode and square thru 3/4 round
Swing that corner lady and promenade
All I want to do is play, and if you ask me I will say
I'm the Texas fiddle man


TAG

If you're gonna play the fiddle, you gotta have a Texan in the band

Texas Fiddle Man

Well that old North Star is shining down on me tonight
I feel like cutting a rug and staying up all night
Well I was born with a fiddle in my hand
I'm a Texas fiddle man

Well, I can fiddle up to Dallas, down to San Antone
I fiddled my way around the world, but Texas is my home
I love the hills and valleys and the Red River sand
I'm a Texas fiddle man

A Texas fiddle man
I rosined up the bow and let the good times roll
Well all I want to do is play
And if you ask me why I'll say I'm a Texas fiddle man

Well I was raised on Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys
And just like Texas Bob I've got a fiddle full of joy
But if the Devil comes to Texas I'll kick his Fannie Ann
Hey I'm a Texas fiddle man

A Texas fiddle man
I rosined up the bow and let the good times roll
Well all I want to do is play
And if you ask me why I'll say I'm a Texas fiddle man

(Fiddle!)

Well that old Lone Star is shining down on my tonight
I feel like making love and staying up all night
Lord, I was born with a fiddle in my hand
I'm a Texas fiddle man

A Texas fiddle man
I rosined up the bow and let the good times roll
Well all I want to do is play
And if you ask me why I'll say I'm a Texas fiddle man

And if you're gonna play the fiddle
You've got to have a Texan in the band

Lyrics by Ray Benson and Larry Franklin.
Recorded by Asleep At The Wheel.
