Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade the inside
Box the gnat, swing there with your beau
You join hands, circle round the ring now
Do an allemande left that corner, weave the ring
If this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
Swing the girl and promenade that line
I just don't fit in and I'll never come back again
But I'm stuck up here and got Dixie on my mind


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle and go now
Meet the sides, make a right hand star
Heads star left int he middle and turn it round now
To the same 2 and do a full square thru
4 hands and then when you're facing out
Swing the corner there and promenade in time
I just don't fit in and I'll never come back again
But I'm stuck up here and got Dixie on my mind


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads left square thru and get 4 hands around
Well meet the sides, make a left hand star
Heads star right in the middle and turn it one time around
To the same 2 and do a left square thru
4 hands and then when you're facing out
Swing the corner, promenade in time
I just don't fit in and I'll never come back again
But I'm stuck up here and got Dixie on my mind

Dixie On My Mind
 
 

All the stations up here they don't sign off with Dixie
The way they did in sweet home Alabam'
And the people here don't sip Jack Daniels whiskey
The way they do in the Tennessee mountain land.

I've always heard alot about the Big Apple
So I thought I'd come up here and see.
But all I've seen so far is one big hassle
Wish I was camped out on the Okchoabee

(Chorus)
If this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
And I'm heading back below that Dixie line.
No, I just don't fit in and I'll never come back again
But I'm busted here and I got Dixie on my mind.
Oh, I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.

These people never smile or say a word
They're all too busy trying to make an extra dime.
Oh I'd love to haul them all down around Spartanburg
And show 'em how to raise hell in Caroline.

Oh the things you know that I miss most of all
Is the freedom of the rivers and the pines.
They don't do much hunting and fishing up here you know
But I have met a few squirrels and one porcupine.

(Chorus 2)

Well, if this is the promised land, I've had all I can stand
Wish I was down in Houston town tonight.
Now I just don't fit in and I'll never be back again.
But I'm busted here and I got Dixie on my mind.
Lord I'm stuck up here and I got Dixie on my mind.
