OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*I remember down in Houston we were puttin' on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, "COTTON-EYED JOE!"
He said we love what you're doing, boys don't get us wrong
There's just something missin' in your songs

Allemande and weave
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band

Swing this lady go round and around and promenade that land
So rosin up that bow for faded love and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band


FIGURE (Twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade halfway around that ring
Come down the middle with a right and left thru and turn the girl I sing
Flutter wheel across, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, star thru, and now go right and left thru
Send her back with a dixie style and you make your wave somehow
Boys cross fold, swing and promenade her now
So rosin up that bow for faded love and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
"Say, ya'll wanna two-step, you say you wanna dosado
Well, here's a fiddlin' song before we go


CLOSER    Basic

4 boys promenade inside the middle of the ring
Get back home and swing, everybody swing
Join hands circle to the left go walking around you know
Left allemande and a weave that ring, here we go!
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot, but not for a Louisiana man
So rosin up that bow for faded love and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band


TAG

If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band!

If You're Gonna Play In Texas
 
 

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Louisiana Man"
So resin up that bow for "Faded Love", and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston, we were puttin' on a show,
When a cowboy in the back stood up and yelled, "Cotton-Eyed Joe!"
He said, "We love what you're doin', but boys don't get us wrong
"There's just somethin' missin' in your song."

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Louisiana Man"
So resin up that bow for "Faded Love", and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case
"You say y'all wanna two-step
You say you wanna do-si-do
Well, here's a fiddlin' song before we go!"

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Louisiana Man"
So resin up that bow for "Faded Love", and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Louisiana Man"
So resin up that bow for "Faded Love", and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot but not for "Louisiana Man"
So resin up that bow for "Faded Love", and let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band

Lyrics by Dan Mitchell and Murray Kellum.
