OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I spent last night in the arms of a girl from Louisiana
Though I'm out on the highway, my thoughts are still with her

Allemande with the corner girl, come home and dosado
Allemande the corner and you weave around the ring
Operator won't you put me on through
Swing your girl and promenade her too
Hurry up won't you get her on the line
I gotta talk to my girl just one more time
Callin' Baton Rouge


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway
Walk in and square thru 4
All the way and do a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel
Square thru and you gotta go 3, lookin' for that corner lady
Swing that honey go round and round, promenade that lady home
Hurry up won't you get her on the line
I gotta talk to my girl just one more time
Callin' Baton Rouge

Callin' Baton Rouge
 
 

I spent last night in the arms
Of a girl in Louisiana
And though I'm out on the highway
My thoughts are still with her
Such a strange combination of a woman and a child
Such a strange situation stoppin' every hundred miles
Callin' Baton Rouge

A replay of last night's events
Roll through my mind
Except a scene or two
Erased by sweet red wine
And I see a truck stop sign ahead
So I change lanes
I need a cup of coffee
And a couple dollars change
Callin' Baton Rouge

Operator won't you put me on through
I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
Hurry up won't you put her on the line
I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

Hello Samantha dear, I hope you're feelin' fine
And it won't be long until I'm with you all the time
But until then I'll spend my money up
Right down to my last dime
Callin' Baton Rouge

Operator won't you put me on through
I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
Hurry up won't you put her on the line
I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

Lyrics by Dennis Linde.
Recorded by The Oak Ridge Boys; Garth Brooks.
