David Cox
Cue Sheet


Sides face, grand square
*Ah, you've done me wrong but it won't be long
'Til my blues are out of sight
For that big green engine's ready to go
Rollin' out of town tonight

Allemande and weave
See the steam and hear the whistle scream
And we're off on a northern line
The 5:38's never known to be late
Rockin' and rollin' along on time


*Ah, swing that coal and hear that engine roll
Keep the signals clear tonight
Women, wine and song, I've had you too long
Gonna lose my blues tonight
Now I've been in town and I've been fooling around
And I've spent some time in jail
Gonna start again, don't know where or when
But tonight I'm changing my trail

*It's good to see the bush-land free
'Neath the moon and stars so bright
And that old green rattler seems to know
That I'm losing my blues tonight
Ah, swing that coal and hear that engine roll
Keep the signals clear tonight
Let the smoke clouds fly, I'm saying goodbye
I'm gonna lose my blues tonight

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands round you do
Meet your corner girl and then swing thru
Boys run right, couples circulate tonight
Bend the line, reverse flutter wheel
Half-sashay, then star thru that way
Trade by, swing your corner, promenade
Women, wine and song, I've had you too long
I'm gonna lose my blues tonight
