Cue Sheet


Circle left
It's all around the water tank
Just a waitin' for a train

Left allemande, why you dosado your own
Allemande the corner, and weave the ring
You know I walked up to a brakeman
Come on and swing the girl around and you promenade
A thousand miles away from home
Just a waitin' for a train

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well now those heads square thru and count 'em 4 there you know
Dosado that corner date
Swing thru and then, why the boys you run
You ferris wheel and move it around there mate, pass thru
You star thru, square thru, it's 3/4 round
Swing that girl and promenade
A thousand miles away from home
Still a waitin' for a train


Let me hear you yodel

Waiting For A Train Lyrics ID: 883

All around the water tower
Waiting for a train
A thousand miles away from home
Sleeping in the rain I walked up to a brakeman
Just to give him a line of talk
He said if you've got money
I'll see that you don't walk
Well I haven't got a nickel
Not a penny can I show
Get off, get off you railroad bum
And he slammed that boxcar door

Well, he put me off in Texas
A state I dearly love
The wide open spaces all around me
The moon and stars up above
Nobody seems to want me
Nor to lend me a helping hand
I'm on my way from Frisco
Going back to Dixieland
My pocketbook is empty
My heart is full of pain
I'm a thousand miles away from home
Just waiting for a train

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by John Denver.
