Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands, circle left go round that ring
Walk around the corner, turn the partner left and then
Men star right one time you go and do a left allemande, weave the ring
Freight train, freight train rolling fast
Dosado and promenade so fast
Don't tell what train I'm on
And I'll keep on rolling on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those 4 ladies chain go cross that ring
Heads promenade and get me halfway and then
Walk in and square thru 4 hands you know
4 hands around and do a dosado
Then you swing thru and boys run right
1/2 tag, swing the corner, promenade the ring
One of these days I'll turn that train around
And come on rolling home

Freight Train Lyrics ID: 462

Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I'm going

When I'm dead and in my grave
No more good times here I crave
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all I've gone to sleep

When I die, oh bury me deep
Down at the end of old Chestnut Street
So I can hear old Number Nine
As she comes rolling by

When I die, oh bury me deep
Down at the end of old Chestnut Street
Place the stones at my head and feet
And tell them all I've gone to sleep

Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Freight train, freight train, run so fast
Please don't tell what train I'm on
They won't know what route I'm going

Lyrics by Elizabeth Cotten.
