Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Allemande left in alamo style, right to partner and balance
Box the gnat and go the wrong way in a right & left grand
Got no future and I got no home
Partner box the gnat, then do a dosado
Allemande left your corner, then weave around the ring
Freight train, freight train
Promenade and help me sing
I don't care what train I'm on
Just as long as it keeps rollin' on


FIGURE (Basic)    Basic, corner progression

Head 2 couples right & left thru and turn the ladies too
Star thru and pass thru and then a right & left thru
Now square thru 3/4 round my friend
To the corner, allemande left, go forward two
Go right & left thru turn back one and swing
Swing that lady round then you promenade that ring
I don't care what train I'm on
Just as long as it keeps rollin' on


FIGURE (MS & QS)    Basic, corner progression

Head couples right & left thru and turn the lady fair
Star thru and pass thru, swing thru over there
Boys run right and then do a ferris wheel tonight
Centers pass thru and make a right hand star
Turn the star all the way then the girls turn back and swing
Swing that man around then promenade that ring
I don't care what train I'm on
Just as long as it keeps rollin' on

Freight Train Lyrics ID: 462

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.
