Everybody listen to the fiddle man

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
He came rollin' into Dallas
In a big old double trailer diesel rig
And just as luck would have it
The driver let him off in front of where I play

Now everybody swing, left allemande and weave
He had a worn-out fiddle case he carried like a child
Tucked beneath his arm as he walked in
, dosado
He strolled up to the bandstand and laid a dollar down
The asked if we'd mind if he sat in

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you promenade it's halfway round the ring
Then square thru (4 hands) all the way you go, right & left thru you know
Turn the girl and do an eight chain 2
Right & left thru and turn the girl
Dive thru and square thru 3/4 round
And swing that corner girl
*As he tuned up with the guitar the guys all looked at me
He looked like an old bum off the street


*He drew that bow across the strings and made it cry
We knew he was no ordinary man

*And when he hit a breakdown by himself to warm it up
We knew we had a fiddler in our band

*He did a verse of Uncle Pen, the crowd would road, he'd play it again
We had the best old fiddler in the land


All four ladies chain across, did Faded Love and Cheatin' Heart
Circle left you roam, allemande left go allemande thar
Right and left and form a star, He topped it off with Rose of San Antone
Shoot that star, go right & left grand
The crowd would roar, he'd play it again
They bought him drinks till he couldn't drink no more
We thought he'd wear his fingers off, 'cause the only time he'd ever stop
Was long enough to rosin up his bow


Everybody swing and play it, fiddle man
