Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four little ladies promenade once around the ring
Back home and swing there with your man
Join hands circle to the left
Left allemande now weave round the ring
My dixie darlin', my dixie dream
Dosado then promenade the ring
My heart is ever true, I love no one but you
My dixie darlin', my dixie dream


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade 1/2 around the ring
Walk in square thru 4 hands
All the way and then right & left thru, veer left
Ferris wheel, walkin' round there too
Centers square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner lady and promenade around
My heart is ever true, I love no one but you
My dixie darlin', my dixie dream


(listen to vocal for additional lyrics and ending)

My Dixie Darling
 
 

Way down below the Mason-Dixon line
Down where the honeysuckles are entwined
There's where the southern winds are blowin'
There's where the daisies' growin'

Girls up north in their gay finery
Whirling around in society
Singing the song of my dixie darling
Where I long to be

My dixie darlin'
Listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silv'ry moon
With my banjo right in tune
My heart's forever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling
My dixie queen

Goin' down south, to have a big time
See my girl down in old Caroline
Drink my booze and do as I please
For all the girls I long to squeeze

Singing the song of my dixie darling
That's where I long to be going
That's where the jellyroll's rolling
With my dixie queen

My dixie darlin'
Listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silv'ry moon
With my banjo right in tune
My heart's forever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling
My dixie queen

Lyrics by A.P. Carter.
Recorded by The Carter Family.
