Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Virgil Caine is my name
And I served on the Danville train

Left allemande, turn the partner right
Allemande left and weave the ring
In the winter of '65
We were hungry, just barely alive
It was a time I remember, oh so well


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, shake it go four
Find your corner, dosado
Swing thru and the boys run right
Bend the line, right & left thru
Pass the ocean, recycle go round
Swing that corner and you promenade
But they should never
Have taken the very best


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
The night they drove old Dixie down

Allemande left and weave the ring
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went Na, Na-na, Na-na, Na
Na-na, Na, Na, Na-na, Na


TAG

Heads face grand square
(music)
Na Na-na, Na, Na-na, Na-na, Na, Na, Na-a

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
 
 

Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train
'til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell
It's a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, "La, la, la, la, la, la, ... "

Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
"Virgil, Quick! Come see!
There goes Robert E. Lee."
Now I don't mind chopping wood
And I don't care if the money's no good
Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest
But they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, "La, la, la, la, la, la, ... "

Like my father before me, I will work the land
Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand
He was just eighteen, proud and brave
But a Yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud below my feet
You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, "La, la, la, la, la, la, ... "

Lyrics by J. Robbie Robertson.
Recorded by The Band; Joan Baez.
