OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our path...

Allemande left and weave the ring
Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) couples square thru and get 4 hands around now
When you meet the sides you make a right hand star
Heads come in reverse the flutter wheel around now
Then sweep 1/4 more until you're home
Side (head) pair touch 1/4, that boy run to the right
Swing your corner lady around and promenade
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be
Think of the kind heart that you're breaking
And the grief you are causing...

Allemande left and weave
Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
As you go to your home by the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River Valley
And the love we exchanged...

Allemande left and weave
Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true

Red River Valley

From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our pathways awhile

CHORUS:
Then come sit here a while 'ere you leave me,
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the girl that has loved you so true

I've been thinking a long time, my darling
Of the sweet words you never would say
Now, alas, must my fond hopes all vanish
For they say you are gong away

When you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh how lonely and drear it would be,
When you think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the pain you are causing to me

From this valley they say you are going;
When you go, may your darling go too?
Would you leave her behind unprotected
When she loves no other but you?

I have promised you darling that never
Shall the words from my lips cause you pain;
And my life is still yours forever,
If you only will love me again

Must the past with its joys be blighted
By the future of sorrow and pain,
And the vows that were spoken be slighted?
Don't you think you can love me again?

As you go to your home by the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River Valley
And the love we exchanged 'mid the flowers

There never could be such a longing
In the heart of a poor maiden's breast,
That dwells in the heart you are breaking
As I wait in my home in the West

And the dark maiden's prayer for her lover
To the Spirit that rules the world:
May his pathway be ever in sunshine,
Is the prayer of the Red River girl

Lyrics by James Kerrigen.
Recorded by Arlo Guthrie.
