Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies chain, chain across that ring
Chain those ladies right back home again
Join up hands and circle left you know
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring you go
I've got those mean old California blues
Dosado your girl and promenade her too
I'm just as lonesome as can be
That woman made a wreck out of me


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway round that ring
Come down the middle do a curlique, walk & dodge and then
Swing thru go 2 by 2, boys run to the right
Bend the line, rock up and back, and then go right & left thru
Slide thru and square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing your corner girl then promenade you know
I'm just as lonesome as can be
That woman made a wreck out of me

California Blues (Blue Yodel No 4)
 
 

Well I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm leaving you, mama
'Cause you know you don't treat me right

Let me tell you somethin'
Mama, that you don't know
Let me tell you somethin'
Good gal, that you don't know
Well, I'm a do right papa
And got a home everywhere I go

Yeah
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
Lord, Lord
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
I may ride the blind
I ain't got no railroad fare

Listen to me, mama
While I sing this song
Listen to your daddy
Sing you this lonesome song
You got me wearied now
But I won't be wearied long

I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
Hey, hey, hey
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
I may ride the blind
I ain't got no railroad fare

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by Jimmie Rodgers; Bill Monroe; Merle Haggard and many others.
