Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain the ring
You rollaway and circle left
4 ladies rollaway
Circle left
Allemande left and weave the ring
I'd rather be in Carolina
Swing and promenade
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be trying to get back home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you travel
With the sides and you make a right hand star
Heads star by the left one time
With the same two do a right & left thru
You touch 1/4, walk & dodge
Partner trade now reverse flutter
Take her and promenade
I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be trying to get back home


TAG

Carolina, you know I'm coming home

I'd Rather Be In Carolina Lyrics ID: 3561

I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be tryin' to
Get back home

California's nice if you got the money to sacrifice
Big fine cars, movie stars and Hollywood and Vine
But if you're looking for good home cooking and girls that are naturally good looking
Then Carolina's where you ought to be

I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be tryin' to
Get back home

I went to find a job in New York City
A nice place to visit, but I couldn't stay too long
You see I miss those tall green trees and down-home folks who speak
So I packed my bags and headed for home

I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be tryin' to
Get back home

The sun always shines on Carolina
Even when the skies are grey
My heart will always be in Carolina
Even when I'm a thousand miles away

I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be tryin' to
Get back home

I'd rather be in Carolina
Ain't no place finer
No matter where you roam
I'd rather be in Carolina
And I'll be tryin' to
Get back home

I gotta get back, I gotta get back home
I'd rather be in Carolina

Lyrics by General Norman Johnson.
Recorded by General Johnson & Chairmen Of The Board.
