Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain, go across the ring there
Star them back, do a dopaso, partner left
Turn the corner lady by the right hand
Turn partner left and make an allemande thar
Slip the clutch, left allemande the corner
Promenade your own around the square
I've got that mean old Delta dirt Lord
I've got the black land Delta dirt down in my veins


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round there
Heads promenade 3/4, too
Sides flutter wheel, go full around there
When you're through, pass thru and square thru 3/4 round
And swing the corner, promenade go walkin round the square
I've got that mean old Delta dirt Lord
I've got the black land Delta dirt down in my veins


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, no progression

Circle to the left
I've wandered away from the place where I was born and raised
Allemande left, turn partner by the right hand
Those men star left around you go
Turn partner right, allemande the corner
Dosado your own and promenade
I've got that mean old Delta dirt Lord
I've got the black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Delta Dirt Lyrics ID: 2273

I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised
I suffered through the Oklahoma dry lands
And through New York City's cold and rainy days

And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Just once again to feel them Mississippi rains

Lord, I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins
In my veins, added in my veins
(In my veins, added in my veins)

I'm goin' home this mornin' if I have to walk, run or fly
I promised me as sure as I was standin'
That I'm never, ever gonna say goodbye
'Cause this heart of mine keeps tellin' me I'm crazy
To keep on wearin' the city's ball and chain

When I got that Delta dirt Lord
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Lord, New York is mighty pretty
If you don't mind what you say
But I'd take a hundred acres of black land dirt
Over Detroit, New York and L.A.

I'm goin' home to Delta mama
'Cause she's got everything
Gonna cure my aches and pains
And I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

I got it in my veins
(In my veins)
I got it in my veins
(Got it in my veins)
Lord, I got it in my veins

Lyrics by Larry Gatlin.
Recorded by The Gatlin Brothers.
