Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
So long to the Red River Valley
My ropin' and wranglin' is through

Men star right, one time tonight
Left allemande, weave the ring
Goodbye to the old empty bunkhouse
Meet your girl, promenade
Send my mail to the end of the trail
So long to the Red River Valley


FIGURE (1 - Easy level)    Basic, unknown progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway
Walk in and do the right & left thru
Same four square thru, 4 hands around
Dosado the outside two, look her in the eye
Allemande left with her, come back dosado
Now take that corner, promenade
For where I'll be travelin', nobody knows
So I'll have to be movin' along


FIGURE (2 - Mainstream)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go halfway
Walk in, pass the ocean here
Extend, swing thru tonight
Boys run to the right, half tag
Walk & dodge, partner trade
Pass the ocean there, recycle
'Round you go, swing the corner lady, promenade
For where I'll be travelin' nobody knows
So I'll have to be movin' along

So Long To The Red River Valley
 
 

So long to the Red River Valley
My ropin' and wranglin' is through
And so farewell to the home corral
And all the old friends that I knew

Goodbye to the old empty bunkhouse
Where I dreamed the hours away
Send my mail to the end of the trail
So long to the Red River Valley

I'll roll up my beddin' and pack up my clothes
And lighten my heart with a song
For where I'll be travelin', nobody knows
But I'll have to be movin' along

So long to the Red River Valley
My ropin' and wranglin' is through
And so farewell to the home corral
And all the old friends that I knew

Goodbye to the old empty bunkhouse
Where I dreamed the hours away
Send my mail to the end of the trail
So long to the Red River Valley

Lyrics by Tim Spencer.
Recorded by Sons Of The Pioneers.
