Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade once around and swing
Old freight train now comin' down the line
Do an allemande left, you do an allemande thar
Go right & left, the men wheel in and star
Shoot that star, go full around, that corner box the gnat
Grand old right & left now go chuggin' down that track
When you meet your lady you promenade the line
Oh! Freight train gotta stay on time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru 4 hands around you know
Dosado the corner once around, get set to go
Swing thru and then you spin the top for me
The same old two go right & left thru
Why don't you square thru 3/4, that corner lady swing
Swing that girl around and promenade that ring
You promenade your lady to the end of the track
Swing her once and whe'll be coming back

Freight Train
 
 

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.
Recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary; Chet Atkins; many others.
