Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across that ring
Half sashay and circle left
I've got an aching in my heart, rollaway
Left allemande and weave that set
And I'm a long way from home
Swing your girl and promenade
And I'd best be on my way
In the early morning rain


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Heads square thru from you are
You make a right hand star
Heads star left in the middle you do
And then a right & left thru
Half sashay, pass thru, trade by
Swing this girl and promenade
And I'd best be on my way
In the early morning rain


TAG

And I'd best be on my way
In the early morning rain

Early Morning Rain
 
 

In the early morning rain
With a dollar in my hand
With an achin' in my heart
And my pockets full of sand
I'm a long way from home
And I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain
With no place to go

Out on runway number nine
Big seven-o-seven set to go
But I'm stuck here in the grass
Where the cold wind blows
Now the liquor tasted good
And the women all were fast
Well there she goes my friend
Well she's rollin' down at last

Hear the mighty engines roar
See the silver bird on high
She's away and westward bound
Far above the clouds she'll fly
Where the mornin' rain don't fall
And the sun always shines
She'll be flyin' o'er my home
In about three hours time

This old airport's got me down
It's no earthly good to me
'Cause I'm stuck here on the ground
As cold and drunk as I can be
You can't jump a jet plane
Like you can a freight train
So I'd best be on my way
In the early morning rain
You can't jump a jet plane
Like you can a freight train
So I'd best be on my way
In the early morning rain

Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot.
Recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary; Gordon Lightfoot.

Originally Blue Star 1890. This cue sheet (vocal) borrows much from the original recording done by the Late Bob Fisk.
