Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly

You do an allemande left like an allemande thar, forward 2 and star
Men swing in and make a back up star
Shoot that star with a full turn, right to the partner, pull her by
Left allemande, come back, swing and promenade
When I get back to Dixie, gonna throw away my coat
And live in that southern sunshine


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm tired of living like an Eskimo
That bone chilling wind will never freeze me again


*I'll never live where the weather chills you to the bone
Us southern folks can't live on snow and ice


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway
Lead to the right and do a dosado
Swing thru the night, boys run right
Bend the line and then go right & left thru
Slide thru and square thru 3 hands around and go
Swing the corner and you promenade
When I get back to Dixie gonna throw away my coat
And live in that southern sunshine

Way down south in Dixie

Highway Headin' South Lyrics ID: 2048

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

North Dakota you've got my better years
Montana you've got five years of my life
But your subzero wind will never touch me again
Southern folks can't live on snow and ice

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

When I cross the Dixie line I'll throw away my coat
And my good down underwear will have to go
I'll never live again where the weather chills you to the bone
I'm tired of livin' like an Eskimo

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

Lyrics by Porter Wagoner.
