OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
All around the water tank
Waiting for a train

Left allemande your corner, come back a dosado
Allemande left and you weave the ring
I haven't got a nickel
Swing that girl and promenade
A thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads square thru, yodel, yodel
Around that corner, dosado
Swing thru and then, come on spin the top my friend
Without a stop go right & left thru
Square thru to 3 hands round now
Swing that corner girl around and promenade
A thousand miles away from home
Waiting for a train

Waiting For A Train
 
 

All around the water tower
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said if you've got money
I'll see that you don't walk
Well I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can I show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
And he slammed that boxcar door

Well, he put me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above
Nobody seems to want me
Nor to lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco
Going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty
My heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Just waiting for a train

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by John Denver.
