Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Way down south on the shores of the Bayou
Boarded a riverboat to cruise down stream

Men star right, roll it along
Left allemande, then you weave
**Oh the Zydeco band and the crawfish man
We were cruising down the river all the way
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Let the good times roll all day!


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Oh the music and dancing went on through the night
as the Riverboat drifted and swayed


**Oh the moon was low on the black bayou
And the stars shone down on the bay
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Singing Laissez les bon temps rouler


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, take it 4 hands go
Dosado that corner girl
Swing thru and then all the boys run right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
You pass the ocean there, recycle now
Swing the corner girl, promenade
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Let the good times roll all day!


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
We were rolling down river and the stakes mounted high
Had our gumbo bisque and we were doin just fine
Cards, chips and dice and the girls looked nice
And we christened the trip with a bottle of wine

4 girls promenade inside that ring
Swing my girl, promenade
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Singing Laissez les bon temps rouler

Ragin' Cajun Riverboat Ride
 
 

Way down south on the shores of the Bayou
Boarded a riverboat to cruise downstream
The sun was a blazin' and the anchor was a raisin'
And we set sail with rudder and steam
Oh the Zydeco band and the crawfish man
We were cruising down the river all day
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Let the good times roll all the way!

We were rolling down river and the stakes mounted high
Had our gumbo bisque and we were doin just fine
Cards, chips and dice and the girls looked nice
And we christened the trip with a bottle of wine
Oh the fais do-do, and a Creole show
Mixing cajun cuisine etoufee
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Singing Laissez les bon temps rouler

Oh the music and dancing went on through the night
As the Riverboat drifted and swayed
They played Rhythm and Blues, and some Dixieland too
The spirits were high you could say
Oh the moon was low on the black bayou
And the stars shone down on the bay
On a Ragin' Cajun Riverboat ride
Singing Laissez les bon temps rouler

Lyrics by Corben Geis.
