Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

Walk around that corner girl
Seesaw your partner
Join hands, circle to the left now
4 men star right
Turn it one time around tonite
Allemande left and weave that circle
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Swing that girl around and promenade
We'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
Shouting hallelujah all the way


FIGURE

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around you go
To the corner, do a right and left thru now
Swing thru, go 2 by 2
Boys run right
1/2 tag, scoot back and go
Boys run
Square thru and go, 3/4 round you know
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Gonna be a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
Shouting hallelujah all the way


TAG

Shouting hallelujah all the way

Night Train To Memphis
 
 

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
And when you arrive at the station
I'll be right there to meet you
I'll be right there to greet you
So don't turn down my invitation.

CHORUS
Halle-lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]
Halle-lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]
We'll be shoutin' hallelu-jah all the day
Oh we'll have a jubilee
Down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout halle-lu-jah all the way.

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at three-fifty-seven; arrive at eleven
And I'll be shoutin' "Halle-lu-jah!"

CHORUS

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin',
I'm not kiddin', I'm not jokin'
I'll soon be with my girl, I'm hopin'.

CHORUS

Lyrics by Beasley Smith, Marvin Hughes, and Owen Bradley.
Recorded by Roy Acuff and His Smoky Mountain Boys.
