Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*It comes from Mississippi and down in Alabam
Creeping like a fever all across the land

Men star right around the ring you know
Allemande left the corner, weave the ring and go
It's the Hillbilly Rock, beat it with a drum
Swing your lady round, promenade your hon
Keeping up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Swing your little baby to the Hillbilly Rock


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around
Split 'em around one, make a line of 4
Touch 1/4, boys run, star thru, flutter wheel
Sweep 1/4, star thru and roll
Swing your corner and promenade
Keeping up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Swing your little baby to the Hillbilly Rock


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Some say it came from Memphis, down in Tennessee
Or it drifted in from Georgia 'bout 1953

*Way back in old Kentucky where the blue grass grows
Through the Carolinas on the dirt red roads

*Burning like a fire, running wild in the woods
From Arkansas to Texas, it sounds so good

Hillbilly Rock Lyrics ID: 1445

It comes from Mississippi, and down in Alabam
Creepin' like a fever all across the land
From deep in the Delta on the Louisiana shore
The people got to have it, they wanna hear some more

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock

Some say it came from Memphis down in Tennessee
Or it drifted in from Georgia about 1953
Just as long as it's greasy, as long as it's fast
As long as it's pumpin' honey, it's gonna last

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock

Way back in old Kentucky where the bluegrass grows
Through the Carolinas on them dirt red roads
Burnin like a fire runnin' wild in the woods
From Arkansas to Texas, it sounds so good

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock

So when the heat starts to risin' and you gotta blow some steam
Take a ride down the river, you'll see just what I mean
The juke joint's jumpin, when that cat goes on
The whole place is shakin', there's a something goin' on

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock

Lyrics by Paul Kennerley.
Recorded by Marty Stuart.
