OPENER    Basic

Now all 4 ladies chain across, turn 'em round, don't get lost
Join your hands & make a great big ring, circle to the left
Allemande left, allemande thar, go right & left, make that star
Back 'em up boys & make a right hand star
Shoot that star, go right & left grand
Every other girl with every other hand
Meet a little lady, promenade her home (all the way around)
Get along home & swing & whirl
Go 'round & round with the pretty little girl
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) you star thru
Go right & left thru, that's what you do
Pass thru, go right & left thru you do, turn your girl
Dive thru, star thru, cross trail thru, that corner swing
Swing corner lady, go 'round and around
Well you allemande left, go right & left grand
Every other girl with every other hand
Meet a new lady, promenade her home
*Well you dealt the cards but you missed the play
So hit the road, be on your way
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm tired of runnin' on the same old track
Bought a one way ticket and I won't be back
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away

*This midnight special is a burnin' the rail
So woman don't try to follow my trail
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away

*That old conductor he seemed to know
You'd done me wrong I was feeling low
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Now all 4 ladies chain across, turn 'em round, don't get lost
Join your hands & make a great big ring, circle to the left
Allemande left, allemande thar, go right & left, make that star
Back 'em up boys & make a right hand star
Shoot that star, go right & left grand
Every other girl with every other hand
Meet a little lady, promenade her home, all the way around
I want a good engine a runnin' on time
So baby I'm switching to another line
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away


CLOSER    Basic

Now all 4 ladies chain across, turn 'em round, don't get lost
Join your hands & make a great big ring, circle to the left
Allemande left, allemande thar, go right & left, make that star
Back 'em up boys & make a right hand star
Shoot that star, go right & left grand
Every other girl with every other hand
Meet a little lady, promenade her home, all the way around
The breakman started singin' a song
Said you're worried now but you won't be long
This golden rocket is a rollin' my blues away

The Golden Rocket
 
 

From old Montana down to Alabam'
I've been before and I'll travel again
You triflin' women can't keep a good man down
You dealt the cards, but you missed the play
Now hit the road and be on your way
I'm gonna board the Golden Rocket and leave this town

I was a good engine a-runnin' on time
But baby I'm switchin' to another line
So honey never hang your signal out for me
I'm tired of runnin' on the same old track
I bought a one-way ticket and I won't be back
This Golden Rocket's gonna roll my blues away

Hear that lonesome whistle blow
That's your cue and by now you know
That I got another true lover waitin' in Tennessee
This Midnight Special's a-burnin' the rail
So woman don't try to follow my trail
This Golden Rocket's gonna roll my blues away

Hear her thunder on through the night
This Golden Rocket is a-doin' me right
And that sunny old Southland sure is a part of me
Now from your call-board erase my name
Your fire went out, you done lost your flame
And this Golden Rocket is a-rollin' my blues away

That old conductor, he seemed to know
That you'd done me wrong, I was feelin' low
For he yelled aloud, "We're over that Dixon Line"
The brakeman started singing a song
Said "You're worried now, but it won't be long
This Golden Rocket is leavin' your blues behind."

Then the porter yelled with his southern drawl
Let's "rise and shine, good mornin', you-all"
And I sprang to my feet to greet the new-born day
As I kissed my baby in the station door
That whistle blew like it never before
On the Golden Rocket that rolled my blues away

Lyrics by Hank Snow.
Recorded by Hank Snow.
