Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Why early in the morning gonna hitch a ride down to New Orleans
I wanta find myself a little cajun queen

Walk around that corner girl see saw your baby
And then boys star by the right one time I say, easy boy
Find the corner girl and then left allemande
Do a dosado, promenade
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two you promenade and you go halfway
Do the right & left thru and you turn I say
Dosado full around, face the corner, swing her
Left allemande, gonna weave the ring, go get 'em boy
(*Guitar interlude)
Dosado, promenade, you know
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind


(*2nd time: piano, 3rd time: guitar, 4th time: piano)


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Oh, sippin' on a beer on Bourbon street I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Walk around that corner girl, see saw your baby
Why men star by the right one time I say, easy boy
Find the corner wahannie and go left allemande
Dosado, promenade the land
And the Mississippi river runs like molasses in the summer time
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind

Mississippi
 
 

Early in the mornin', she hitched a ride down to Louisville
Holdin' onto a hundred dollar bill
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby
Yeah, she looked good, like a lady

And the Mississippi River runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind

Sippin' on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Have a seat an' take a load off your feet, and she said "Yes"
So I said, "I like your dress"
Swamps all around make ya feel kinda funny, don't they, honey
She crossed her legs and looked at me funny

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin' (what you're doin')
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'

Early in the mornin', she hitched a ride down to Louisville (Louisville)
Holdin' onto a hundred dollar bill
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby
Yeah, she looked good, like a lady

And the Mississippi River, it runs like molasses in the summertime
And me, you know, I don't hardly mind

Sippin' on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin' easy
Don't get me wrong, it takes a lot to please me

Everybody sing

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'

Have a seat, take a load off your feet, and she said "Yes"
So I said, "I like your dress"
Swamps all around make ya feel kinda funny, don't they, honey
She crossed her legs and looked at me funny

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin' (what you're doin')
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin' (what you're doin')
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'

I have been looking for this song for years!!! On my way home from work, one phrase from the lyrics came to me "And the Mississippi River Runs like Molasses in the summer time." so I google the phrase and wa la!! this is it. Now I need to find a recording of it.
