Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around that corner, see saw the partner
You join hands, circle to the south awhile
Are you from Dixie, I said from Dixie
Left allemande and weave around the ring
If you're living anywhere where they don't say "you all"
Dosado and promenade we're gonna have a ball
Are you from Dixie, I said from Dixie
Well I'm from Dixie, too


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway with that maid
Go right & left thru, turn the girl and star thru
California twirl, swing that corner girl
Left allemande and weave around the ring
*If you're from Arkansas, Kentucky, or Tennessee
Dosado your baby, promenade with me
Are you from Dixie, I said from Dixie
Well I'm from Dixie, too


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If you're from Mississippi, Georgia, or North Caroline
Dosado and promenade that Dixie line

*If you're from Alabam, Virginia, or South Caroline
Dosado and promenade on down the line

Are You From Dixie ('Cause I'm From Dixie Too) Lyrics ID: 176

Hello there, stranger! How do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you.
Don't be surprised, you're recognized
I'm no detective, but I've just surmised.
You're from the place where I long to be.
Your smiling face seems to say to me:
"You're from my own land, my sunny homeland,
Tell me can it be?

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me!
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line,
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

It was a way back in eighty-nine,
I crossed the Old Mason Dixon line
Oh! But I've yearned, longed to return
To all the good old pals I left behind.
My home is 'way down in Alabam'
On a plantation near Birmingham,
And one thing's certain I'm surely flirtin'
With those Southbound trains!

"Are you from Dixie? I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
I'm glad to see you, tell me how be you
And the friends I'm longing to see?
If you're from Alabama, Tennessee or Caroline
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line!
Then you're from Dixie, hurray for Dixie!!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!"

Composed by George L. Cobb.
Lyrics by Jack Yellen.
Recorded by The Blue Sky Boys; many others.
