Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain about 3/4 round and go
Turn the girl and roll away then circle to the left you know
Walk around that corner and see saw round your own
Allemande left the corner and you weave the ring you roam
Southern rain, from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rain

Dosado and promenade
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease a pain
But I can pray for help and hope for southern rain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around the ring and go
Come down the middle, right & left thru and turn the girl you know
Flutter wheel in the middle, come on sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, go right & left thru, then you roll away
Pass thru, u-turn back and swing the corner there
Do an allemande new corner, then promenade the square
You may not believe my story and you may say I'm insane
But the closest thing to home's old southern rain

Southern Rains
 
 

Sometimes my soul gets weary, and my mind begins to wander
And like that ol' train, The Hummingbird, it goes to Alabam'
They say home is where the heart is, and mine is down in Dixie
When you go down to Dixie, you're headin' for higher ground

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Southern rains, like the sunshine it's a blessin' sent from heaven
Southern rains, they can wash away your cares if you let em
You may not believe my story, and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Homesick is a feeling that a body can't get over
There's no such thing as healing, and it won't go away with time
When we're young we want to get away, when we're old we want to go back
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Southern rains, like the sunshine it's a blessin' sent from heaven
Southern rains, they can wash away your cares if you let em
You may not believe my story, and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Lyrics by Roger Murrah.
Recorded by Mel Tillis.
