Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I was born in Louisiana down on the old bayou
Raised on shrimp and catfish and Mammy's good gumbo

Allemande left, run home you dosado
Left allemande, weave the ring
I saw miles and miles of Texas, all the stars up in the sky
Promenade
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I rode up into Cowtown, the cradle of the west
Just ask any cowboy; he'll tell you it's the best


*I started tamin' broncos; made every rodeo
Till I met a tough one: his name was Devil Joe


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru four hands you know
Go all the way to the corner, you do a dosado
Swing thru tonight and the boys run right
You ferris wheel, centers pass thru
You touch 1/4, scoot back and then
Swing your corner, promenade
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die


TAG

I'm gonna live there 'til I die

Miles And Miles Of Texas
 
 

I was born in Louisiana down on the ol' bayou
Raised on shrimp and catfish, and Mammy's good gumbo
I got the ramblin' fever, said goodbye to ma and pa
Crossed that ol' Red River and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
Gonna live there till I die

I rode up into Cowtown, the cradle of the West
Just ask any cowboy, he'll tell you it's the best
I met a Texas beauty, got friendly with her pa
I looked in to her big blue eyes, this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
Gonna live there till I die

I started tamin' broncos, made every rodeo
Until I met a rough one, his name was Devil Joe
I grabbed hold of his bridle to ride this ol' outlaw
He threw me from the saddle and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
Gonna live there till I die

Lyrics by Tommy Camfield and Diane Johnston.
Recorded by Asleep At The Wheel.
