Cue Sheet
 

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I wandered far away
From the place where I was born and raised

Left allemande, come back a dosado
Do an allemande left and weave the ring
*And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Swing your girl and promenade
Lord I've got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now the heads (sides) promenade take her halfway
Down the middle and do the right & left thru
Come on and square thru four hands around now
And a right & left thru the outside two
Why don't you swing thru tonight, boy run right
Half tag, swing the corner, promenade
Lord I've got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies (boys) promenade go walking
Gonna get on back and swing and whirl that man
Join all your hands, gotta circle around that ring
Do an allemande left and weave the ring
*Well I'm going home to my sweet Delta Mama
*Swing that girl around and around and promenade
Lord I've got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Cause this heart of mine keeps telling me I'm crazy
**To keep on wearing those city ball and chains

Delta Dirt
 
 

I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised
I suffered through the Oklahoma dry lands
And through New York City's cold and rainy days

And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Just once again to feel them Mississippi rains

Lord, I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins
In my veins, added in my veins
(In my veins, added in my veins)

I'm goin' home this mornin' if I have to walk, run or fly
I promised me as sure as I was standin'
That I'm never, ever gonna say goodbye
'Cause this heart of mine keeps tellin' me I'm crazy
To keep on wearin' the city's ball and chain

When I got that Delta dirt Lord
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Lord, New York is mighty pretty
If you don't mind what you say
But I'd take a hundred acres of black land dirt
Over Detroit, New York and L.A.

I'm goin' home to Delta mama
'Cause she's got everything
Gonna cure my aches and pains
And I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

I got it in my veins
(In my veins)
I got it in my veins
(Got it in my veins)
Lord, I got it in my veins

Lyrics by Larry Gatlin.
Recorded by The Gatlin Brothers.
