Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

You circle left now, and don't be late now
And do a left allemande then a right and left grand
And when you meet her, here's how you greet her
You'll dosado, then swing your maid
Gents star left, across the set and there you box the gnat
Girls star left, go straight across, let's box it back
Promenade her, you serenade her
You'll know that she's from Dixie too


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Head (side) couples swing now, promenade the ring now
Go 1/2 way round, then a right and left thru
You'll turn your lady, 4 ladies chain across
And then the sides square thru, go full around
Go all the way around the ring, swing that corner maid
Allemande left, then come on back, let's promenade
Are you from Dixie, I said, from Dixie
'Cause she's from Dixie too

Are You From Dixie ('Cause I'm From Dixie Too) Lyrics ID: 176

Hello there, stranger! How do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you.
Don't be surprised, you're recognized
I'm no detective, but I've just surmised.
You're from the place where I long to be.
Your smiling face seems to say to me:
"You're from my own land, my sunny homeland,
Tell me can it be?

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me!
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line,
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

It was a way back in eighty-nine,
I crossed the Old Mason Dixon line
Oh! But I've yearned, longed to return
To all the good old pals I left behind.
My home is 'way down in Alabam'
On a plantation near Birmingham,
And one thing's certain I'm surely flirtin'
With those Southbound trains!

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line!
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

Composed by George L. Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by The Blue Sky Boys; many others.
