OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left the corner, come back dosado
Promenade go single file, Indian style you know
Girls step out and backtrack, go full around and then
Turn thru, left allemande, weave the ring
Big Chief Buffalo Nickel was a mighty man in his day
Dosado this lady, and then you promenade
He roamed around from tent to tent, smoke'm peace pipe with delight
He loved the squaw, everyone he saw
And he'd swing and whirl all night


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) do a left square thru 4 hands around you know
Meet the sides, make a left hand star, all the way round you know
Heads star right in the middle go all the way round and then
Find the corner, left allemande, then do a right & left grand
Big Chief Buffalo Nickel was a mighty man in his day
Dosado this lady, and then you promenade
He roamed around from tent to tent, smoke'm peace pipe with delight
He loved the squaw, everyone he saw
And he'd swing and whirl all night

Big Chief Buffalo Nickel (Desert Blues)
 
 

A way out on the windswept desert
Where nature favors no man
A buffalo found his brother
Lying naked on the sun baked sand
He said: My brother what ails you
Has sickness made you this way
His brother never said
'Cause his brother was dead
He'd been dead since way last May

Big chief buffalo nickel
Was a mighty man in his day
He never used a sickle
To clear the bushes away
He roamed around from tent to tent
Heed everything in sight
He loved his squaw, everyone he saw
He loved a new one every night

A way out on the windswept desert
I heard a big Indian moan
I left my tent, 'cause I knew what it meant
I swore I nevermore would roam
It was dawn when I reached Saint Pete
My legs were certainly sore
I must have lost fifty pounds
On that hot desert ground
And I'd lose that many more

Big chief buffalo nickel
Was a mighty man in his day
He never used a sickle
To clear the bushes away
He roamed around from tent to tent
Heed everything in sight
He loved his squaw, everyone he saw
He loved a new one every night

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by Skeets McDonald; Leon Redbone; Ricky Nelson.
