OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Join your hands, circle left to old Dixie
Reverse back single file for a while
All four ladies backtrack, twice around you go
When you meet your lady then do a little dosado
Allemande left, turn thru with your partner
Left allemande, come on back promenade home
Do they laugh? Do they love?
Like they sing in every song?
If it's true, that's where I belong


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head two couples square thru four hands around you go
When you're through then do a curlique
Scoot back you go, curlique you know
Swing thru two by two, boys run you do
Wheel & deal when you're through, swing your corner girl
Left allemande, come back promenade
Do they laugh? Do they sing?
Square dance and everything?
If it's true, that's where I belong

Is It True What They Say About Dixie
 
 

Is it true what they say about Dixie
Does the sun really shine all the time
Do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door
Do the folks keep eating possum til they can't eat no more

Is it true what they say about Suwannee
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh, do they love, like they say in every song
If it's true that's where I belong

Is it true what they say about Dixie
Does the sun really shine all the time
Well do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door
Do the folks keep eating that possum til they can't eat no more

Is it true what they say about Suwannee
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh, love, like they say in every song
If it's true that's where I belong

Lyrics by Irving Caesar, Sammy Lerner and Gerald Marks.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Jimmy Dorsey; Dean Martin; others.
