Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
All the stations up here don't sign off with Dixie
The way they did in sweet home Alabam'

Left allemande that corner, dosado now
Left allemande and weave around that ring
If this is the promised land
I've had all I can stand

Turn thru and you go left allemande, promenade
No I just don't fit in
And I'll never come back again
I'm stuck up here I got Dixie on my mind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) 2 couples square thru go 4
Around that corner lady, dosado
Swing thru & then the boys you run
You'll tag the line & then cloverleaf
C'mon girls square thru & go, 3/4 round you know
Swing that corner lady, promenade
No I just don't fit in
And I'll never come back again
I'm stuck up here I got Dixie on my mind


CLOSER    Mainstream

The one thing that I miss most of all
If the freedom of the rivers and the pines

Left allemande that corner, dosado now
Left allemande and weave around that ring
If this is the promised land
I've had all I can stand

Turn thru and you go left allemande, promenade
No I just don't fit in
And I'll never come back again
I'm stuck up here I got Dixie on my mind

I'm busted here
I got Dixie on my mind

Dixie On My Mind Lyrics ID: 224

All the stations up here they don't sign off with Dixie
The way they did in sweet home Alabam'
And the people here don't sip Jack Daniels whiskey
The way they do in the Tennessee mountain land.

I've always heard alot about the Big Apple
So I thought I'd come up here and see.
But all I've seen so far is one big hassle
Wish I was camped out on the Okchoabee

(Chorus)
If this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
And I'm heading back below that Dixie line.
No, I just don't fit in and I'll never come back again
But I'm busted here and I got Dixie on my mind.
Oh, I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.

These people never smile or say a word
They're all too busy trying to make an extra dime.
Oh I'd love to haul them all down around Spartanburg
And show 'em how to raise hell in Caroline.

Oh the things you know that I miss most of all
Is the freedom of the rivers and the pines.
They don't do much hunting and fishing up here you know
But I have met a few squirrels and one porcupine.

(Chorus 2)

Well, if this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
Wish I was down in Houston town tonight.
Now I just don't fit in and I'll never be back again.
But I'm busted here and I got Dixie on my mind.
Lord I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.
