OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies promenade go once around the ring
Get on home and box the gnat, give that man a swing
Join hands, circle left, walking round and then
Do an allemande left that corner girl
Gonna weave the ring my friend
Eight more miles to Louisville, home town of my heart
Dosado with the lady now and promenade so smart
Well she's the kind that you can't find
Ramblin' through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

4 ladies chain now 3/4 round you go
1 & 3 you promenade go half around you know
Come down the middle with a curlique
And a walk & dodge and then
Swing thru the outside two and curlique again
Boys run right around that girl, pass thru and swing
Swing little corner, boy, and promenade that ring
Well she's the kind that you can't find
Ramblin' through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Eight More Miles To Louisville
 
 

I've traveled over this country wide seeking fortune fair
Up and down the two coast lines I've traveled everywhere
From Portland East to Portland West back along the line
I'm going now to the place that's best that old hometown of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

There's bound to be a gal somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a traveling through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home
A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam
The place that's right for that love sight is in those bluegrass hills
Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Lyrics by Louis Marshall "Grandpa" Jones.
