Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies chain 3/4 round that ring
Join hands and circle to the left go moving round
Allemande left to an alamo style, balance in and out
Swing thru, allemande thar, the men back in and star
Slip the clutch, left allemande, dosado at home
Left allemande once again, gonna come back one and promenade
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue


FIGURE    Plus, unknown progression

Head 2 you square thru get 4 hands and go
Dosado the corner one, make an ocean wave you know
Girls trade, linear cycle, take yours and then sweep 1/4 more
Now slide thru and then square thru and go 3/4 round that ring
Swing the corner lady round and promenade home
Sioux City Sue, oh Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue Lyrics ID: 2859

I drove a herd of cattle down from old Nebraska way
That's how I come to be in the state of Iowa
I met a gal in Iowa, her eyes were big and blue
I asked her what her name was, she said Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue, Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

I asked her if she had a beau
She said, "Yes quite a few"
But still I started courtin' my sweet Sioux City Sue
The first time that I stole a kiss, I caught her stealing two
I asked her did she love me, She said "Indeed I do"

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Now I'm admitting Iowa, I owe a lot to you
Cause I come from Nebraska to find Sioux City Sue
I'm gonna rope and tie her up, I'll use my old laso
I'm gonna put my brand on, my sweet Sioux City Sue

Sioux City Sue
Your hair is red, your eyes are blue
I'd swap my horse and dog for you
Sioux City Sue
There ain't no gal as true as my sweet Sioux City Sue

Composed by Dick Thomas.

James Maxey was my father. My siblings and I would love to have a copy of this recording, if anyone has one available.
