Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Just off the beaten path
A little dot on a state road map

Left allemande the corner, do a dosado
Left allemande, weave the ring
Down home, where they know you by name
Swing the girl, promenade
Down home where a man's good word
And a handshake is all you need


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you go
Find the corner, do a dosado
Swing thru, spin the top, boys move up
Right & left thru
Square thru 3/4 around
Swing the corner, promenade
Down home where a man's good word
And a handshake is all you need


TAG

Down home where a man's good word
And a handshake is all you need

Down Home
 
 

Just off of the beaten path
A little dot on a state road map
That's where I was born & where I'll die
Things move at a slower pace
Nobody's in a rat race
And these days that's a special way to fly

Down home where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home a man's good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

In the corner of a hardware store
Gathered round a checker board
Old men telling lies & crowning kings
Kids drivin' round the old town square
Tops rolled down in the cool nite air
Go & see what's shakin' at the Dairy Queen

Down home where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home a man's good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

When I was a boy I couldn't wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised

Down home
Down home
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home a man's good word & a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home
Down home

Way down home
Down home
Down home
Way down home
Down home

Lyrics by Rick Bowles and Josh Leo.
Recorded by Alabama.
