OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around your corner girl, see saw around your taw
Gents star right go once around and to your corner go
Allemande that corner lady, turn a right hand round your own
Gents star left once again, around the ring you roam
Partners all a right hand round, allemande that corner girl
Grand old right & left around, when you meet you promenade
You promenade eight with a happy gait, I knew it from the start
Sing eight more miles to Louie-ville, the home town of my heart


FIGURE   

The head two couples trail thru, U turn back and then
Star thru and pass thru, around just one you go
Square thru 4 hands round, look for the corner there
Box the gnat, same girl dosado and then
Allemande left new corner, do a grand old right & left
When you meet your lady, you promenade the set
You promenade eight with a happy gait, I knew it from the start
Sing eight more miles to Louie-ville, the home town of my heart


TAG

Sing eight more miles to Louie-ville, the home town of my heart
(or Louie-ville, Louie-ville, the home town of my heart)

Eight More Miles To Louisville Lyrics ID: 1505

I've traveled over this country wide seeking fortune fair
Up and down the two coast lines I've traveled everywhere
From Portland East to Portland West back along the line
I'm going now to the place that's best that old hometown of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

There's bound to be a gal somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a traveling through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home
A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam
The place that's right for that love sight is in those bluegrass hills
Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Lyrics by Louis Marshall "Grandpa" Jones.
