FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade go just 1/2 way
Right & left thru and turn your girl
Square thru four hands with Camelia
Star right with the outside pair
Heads (sides) star left in the center to the same two
Right & left thru turn the girl, swing thru
Boys you run, wheel & deal now, dive thru
Square thru 3/4 round
Allemande the corner, docey partner,
Corner swing and promenade
Cross the Brazos in Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 little ladies chain across the ring now
Rollaway and circle to the left
4 ladies rollaway, dosado the next
The men star left one time
Star promenade with your partner
4 ladies backtrack twice and then
Second time you meet, dosado her
Bow then weave that ole ring
You're gonna cross the Brazos in Waco

Promenade her by Waco
Swing her in ole San Antone

Cross The Brazos At Waco
 
 

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone

On the Chisholm Trail it was midnight
Carmella was strong on his mind
Because of the life he had chosen
Carmella had left him behind
Too long he'd been a bandito
Carmella had left him alone
But today someone brought a message
She'd been seen in old San Antone

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone

Then the night came alive with gunfire
He knew that at last he'd been found
As the range of badges shone brightly
A bandit a lay on the ground
Carmella she knew he was dying
That all of her dreams were in vain
As she kissed his lips for the last time
She heard him whisper again

Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
Cross the Brazos at Waco
I'm safe when I reach San Antone

Lyrics by Kay Arnold.
Recorded by Billy Walker; Hank Snow.
