Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I wandered far away
From the place where I was born and raised

Left allemande that corner, run back a dosado
Four ladies promenade one time and go
Turn your partner by the right and you go left allemande
Come back and swing your lady, promenade
Lawd, I got that delta dirt (Lawd, Lawd)
I got that blackland delta dirt down in my veins


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*My heart is longing for
The ones that I love so dear


*Someday I'm going home
To the place where I was born and raised


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) you square thru four hands around you go
Gonna dosado that corner waiting there
Now star thru and then go right & left thru and turn that girl
Flutter wheel go once around and then, sweep 1/4 more
Veer to the left and wheel & deal, find the corner swing
Allemande left, come back and promenade
Lawd, I got that delta dirt (Lawd, Lawd)
I got that blackland delta dirt down in my veins

Delta Dirt Lyrics ID: 2273

I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised
I suffered through the Oklahoma dry lands
And through New York City's cold and rainy days

And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Just once again to feel them Mississippi rains

Lord, I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins
In my veins, added in my veins
(In my veins, added in my veins)

I'm goin' home this mornin' if I have to walk, run or fly
I promised me as sure as I was standin'
That I'm never, ever gonna say goodbye
'Cause this heart of mine keeps tellin' me I'm crazy
To keep on wearin' the city's ball and chain

When I got that Delta dirt Lord
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Lord, New York is mighty pretty
If you don't mind what you say
But I'd take a hundred acres of black land dirt
Over Detroit, New York and L.A.

I'm goin' home to Delta mama
'Cause she's got everything
Gonna cure my aches and pains
And I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

I got it in my veins
(In my veins)
I got it in my veins
(Got it in my veins)
Lord, I got it in my veins

Lyrics by Larry Gatlin.
Recorded by The Gatlin Brothers.
