OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

You join your hands and circle
Circle round the ring
Then allemande left that corner
Now weave around the ring
And when you meet your partner,
Dosado, promenade
Then you take her home and swing her
You swing her there for me


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Head two a 1/2 square thru
Swing thru with the outside two
You're gonna balance forward and back
Then you box the gnat
Eight chain 3, 3 hands around and swing
Promenade all the way
Then you take her home and swing her
You swing her there for me


TAG

You twirl her way on out and bow down low
You twirl her way on out

Folsom Prison Blues  (1955)

I hear the train a'coming it's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps rollin' on down to San Antone

When I was just a baby my Mama told me 'Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns.'
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry

I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures me.

Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move on over a little farther down the line,
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.

(The above lyrics refer to Johnny Cash's original version.)

Lyrics by Johnny Cash.
Recorded by Johnny Cash.
