Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain gonna turn the little girl and then
Roll away, circle to the left go walking around my friend
Roll the girl away, circle left around the ring
Allemande left that corner, weave the ring
I said freight train, freight train going so fast
Dosado and promenade at alst
I don't care what train I'm on
As long as it keeps rollin' on


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Heads square thru go 4 hand you know
Dosado the corner, all the way around you go
Swing thru and then spin the top for me
When you're through right & left thru and then, turn that girl
Square thru, 3 hand, then the corner swing
Left allemande and promenade that ring
I don't care what train I'm on
As long as it keeps rollin' on

Freight Train Lyrics ID: 462

Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I'm going

When I'm dead and in my grave
No more good times here I crave
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all I've gone to sleep

When I die, oh bury me deep
Down at the end of old Chestnut Street
So I can hear old Number Nine
As she comes rolling by

When I die, oh bury me deep
Down at the end of old Chestnut Street
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all I've gone to sleep

Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I'm going

Lyrics by Elizabeth Cotten.
