Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*I was born in Louisiana down on the old bayou
Raised on shrimp and catfish and Mammy's good gumbo
I got that ramblin fever said goodbye to ma and pa
I crossed the old Red River

Allemande left and weave, you all
I saw miles and miles of Texas
Swing your girl and promenade
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle four hands you go
Here comes the corner lady, do a dosado
Swing thru, boys run right
Ferris wheel, bring 'em on around, centers pass thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner, promenade
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die


*I rode up in to Cowtown the cradle of the west
Just ask any cowboy he'll tell you it's the best
I met a Texas beauty got friendly with her pa
I looked into her big blue eyes

Allemande left now weave

CLOSER    Basic

*I started taming broncos I made every rodeo
Until I met a rough one his name was Devil Joe
I grabbed on to his bridle to ride the old outlaw
He threw me from the saddle

Allemande left now weave, you all


I'm gonna live there 'til I die
