Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Walk around your corner, see saw your taw
Join all your hands and circle left round that hall
4 men star right, turn it one time you know
Do an allemande left your corner, now weave it and go
My daddy was a Mississippi River man
Swing with your own, promenade round the land
Working in the morning till the end of day
That's when I go out to play


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade travel halfway and go
Sides pass thru, cloverleaf there you know
Do a double pass thru, track 2 when you're through
Slide thru, load the boat one time you do
Working on the muddy Mississippi line
Swing your corner lady, promenade her in time
All kinds of people want to lend you a hand
They'll help you any way they can


TAG

Walk around your corner, now swing her one time
We're dancing on the muddy Mississippi

Muddy Mississippi Line
 
 

Working on a barge down in New Orleans
Spending all money on cajun queens
Working from the morning till the end of day
That's when I go out to play

Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line
They pay me ten dollars and I don't save a dime
But I always seem to make enough to see me through
And I bet you five dollars I'm as happy as you

Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line
Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line

I've got a lot of friends down in New Orleans
Working on the docks loadin' coffee beans
Harder working people who will lend you a hand
They'll help you any way they can

My daddy was a MIssissippi river man
My mamma was cajun from the heart of the land
They taught me how to love the Mississippi mud
Now this Mississippi water flows in my blood

Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line
Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line

I love the Mississippi like it was my home
As long as I remember it's been my home
When you're riding on the Muddy Mississippi Line
I know it's kind of muddy but it sure looks fine

Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line
Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line

Lyrics by Bobby Goldsboro.
