Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've been working on the railroad
All the live long day
I've been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away

Four ladies promenade one time
Swing your girl around and promenade
Can't you hear the captain shouting
Dinah blow your horn


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, roll it one time and then
Same pair and do a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
Can't you hear the captain shouting
Dinah blow your horn


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow
Dinah won't you blow your horn
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow

Allemande left and weave the ring
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Swing your girl around and promenade
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on that ole banjo

I've Been Working On The Railroad
 
 

I've been workin' on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Don't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah, blow your horn?"

Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone's in the kitchen, I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo.

Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on the old banjo.

Recorded by Sandhills Sixteen (1927).
