Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Adalida
Pretty little Cajun queen
Sweet gypsy flower, the bell of the bayou
You're every young man's dream

Allemande and weave the ring
Adalida
*Swing that lady round and promenade
To stand beside of my sweet Adalida
I'd swim the Pontchartrain


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle get 4 hands around
Move right out and do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Bend that line, right & left thru
Ladies lead to a dixie style to an ocean wave
Slip the clutch, left allemande, promenade
To stand beside of my sweet Adalida
I'd swim the Pontchartrain


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'd walk through a hurricane

TAG

Just to stand beside of my sweet Adalida
I'd swim the Pontchartrain

Adalida
 
 

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Oh no, here you're comin' down the road,
With your cotton dress a swishin',
You gettin some attention from all the boys in Thibodaux.
Oh my, you're really fillin' up their eyes.
Smilin' and a winkin', I know what they're thinkin',
But I'm the only one who loves you so!

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Oh no, the hottest little dish I know.
I know you can tell it, you're makin' me so jealous,
From my head down to my toes.
Oh me, you could make a redneck green,
The way that your a-lookin', you got me a-cookin',
And I ain't talkin 'bout Etoufee'.

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Adalida, pretty little Cajun queen.
Sweet Dixie flower, the belle of the bayou,
You're every young man's dream.
Adalida, I'd walk through a hurricane,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
To stand beside you, sweet Adalida,
Just to stand beside of my sweet Adalida,
I'd swim the Pontchartrain.

Lyrics by Michael Geiger, Michael Huffman and Woody Mullis.
Recorded by George Strait.
