Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies promenade go walking round the ring
Gonna get on back and swing your man, everybody swing
Join up hands and circle to the left go walking round
Allemande left that corner girl, then weave the ring
Engine, engine #9 coming down the railroad line
Swing that girl around then you promenade
Well a hundred and ten miles ain't much distance
But it sure do make a difference
And I don't think she loves me anymore


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads 2 couples promenade go halfway round the floor
Side 2 do the right & left thru and turn the girl
You square thru 4 hands go walking round the ring
Everybody pass thru, allemande left and weave around the ring
Engine, engine #9 coming down the railroad line
Swing this girl around and you promenade
A hundred and ten miles ain't much distance
But it sure do make a difference
And I don't think she loves me anymore

Engine Engine #9
 
 

Engine, engine number nine
Coming down the railroad line
How much farther back did she get off
Old brown suitcase that she carried
I've looked for it everywhere
It just ain't here among the rest
And I'm a little upset, yes... tell me

Engine, engine number nine
Coming down the railroad line
I know she got on in Baltimore
A hundred and ten miles ain't much distance
But it sure do make a difference
I don't think she loves me anymore

I warned her of the dangers
Don't speak to strangers
If by chance she finds new romance
Warmer lips to kiss her
Arms to hold her tighter
Stirring new fires inside her
How I wish that it was me instead
Of he that stands beside her

Engine, engine number nine
Coming down the railroad line
I know she got on in Baltimore
A hundred and ten miles ain't much distance
But it sure do make a difference
I don't think she loves me anymore

Lyrics by Roger Miller.
