Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Four ladies chain across to Old Virginny
Join hands and circle left around the ring you roam
Left allemande go forward two, right and left now
Turn back one, turn your corner by the right
Go forward two, left and right, turn back to the corner
Left allemande, come back and promenade
All the way back home to Old Virginny
That's where the cotton and corn and 'taters grow


FIGURE    A1, unknown progression

Heads (sides) promenade 3/4 around the ring now
Side (head) ladies chain across, you turn 'em full around
Dosado that outside two, once around then you star thru
Cross trail thru, left allemande then
All four men star right across that land
Turn your opposite by the left now
Your corner swing, you swing and whirl
Promenade back home to old Virginny
That's where the cotton and the corn and 'taters grow

Carry Me Back To Old Virginny
 
 

Carry me back to old Virginny
There's where the cotton and corn and taters grow
There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time
There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go

There's where I labored so hard for old Massa
Day after day in the field of yellow corn
No place on earth do I love more sincerely
Than old Virginny, the state where I was born

Carry me back to old Virginny
There's where the cotton and the corn and taters grow
There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time
There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go

Carry me back to old Virginny
There let me live till I wither and decay
Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered
There's where this old darkey's life will pass away

Massa and Missis have long since gone before me
Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore
There we'll be happy and free from all sorrow
There's where we'll meet and we'll never part no more

Carry me back to old Virginny
There's where the cotton and the corn and taters grow
There's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time
There's where this old darkey's heart am long'd to go

Lyrics by James A. Bland.
Recorded by Tom Roush; Ray Charles; many others.
