Cue Sheet


Allemande left and weave the ring
The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance oh me, oh my

You dosado and go left allemande
Alamo style and you balance my friend
Swing thru and balance, swing thru again
Swing your partner and promenade that land
You're just like rain to a love in bloom so
Shine on me, oh Cajun Moon

FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru four hands you go
With the one you meet curlique you know
Scoot back and now the boys all run right
Square thru three hands tonight
Left allemande, dosado your own
Go back and swing the corner, promenade her home
You're just like rain to a love in bloom, oh
Shine on me, oh Cajun Moon

Cajun Moon

The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance, oh me oh my
Gonna have more fun than a tree and a coon
Tonight's the dance of the Cajun moon

Pickups and wagons 'round the railroad shack
Bonfires are drawin' in a crowd out back
Step through the door and I see my Cheri
That's when I feel her mama's eyes on me

Cajun moon, nugget of gold, river of light on the bayou
You're just like rain to a love in bloom, so
Shine on me, oh Cajun moon

Guitar, a squeeze box, a fiddle and bow
Little band a-playin' every song they know
Ol' woman sittin' there and yellin' for more
My heart is willin' but my feet, they're so sore!


Once more we're waltzin' to Jolie Blonde
I lean in closer and Cheri responds
Her mama's smilin' as we slip from the room
To sit and stare at the Cajun moon

(chorus x2)

Lyrics by Jim Rushing.
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs.
