Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle to the left
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
This morning about half past nine

Allemande the corner, turn the partner by the right
The men star left I ain't lying
Turn that partner by the right, that corner allemande left
Swing the partner then you promenade
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And made off with the gold


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, count 4 hands around
Around the corner, do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, then the boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel full around and then slide thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And made off with the gold

Glendale Train Lyrics ID: 466

CHORUS:
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
This mornin' at half past nine
Sombody robbed the Glendale train
And I swear, I ain't lyin'
They made clean off with sixteen "G"s
And left two men lyin' cold
Somebody robbed the Glendale train
And they made off with the gold

Charlie Jones was the engineer,
he had 20 years on the line.
He kissed his wife at the station gate,
this morning 6:35.
Every thing went fine till 1/2 past 9,
when Charlie looked up and he saw
Some men on horses, men with guns, and
no sign of the law.

Chorus (tag no words).

Amos White was the baggage man,
and dearly loved his job.
The company rewarded him, with a
golden watch and fob.
Well Amos he was markin' time
when the door blew off his car.
They found Amos White in 15 pieces
15 miles apart.

Chorus

I said somebody robbed the Glendale train
And made off with the gold.

Lyrics by John Dawson.
Recorded by New Riders of the Purple Sage.
