Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

The 4 ladies chain, go straight across the square
Join hands, circle left you know
Left allemande the corner, go forward 2 and then
Meet the partner, then weave around you go
You wind in and out around the ring you go
Dosado and promenade this lady around the ring you go
The queen of the big rodeo


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) promenade travel halfway and then
Come down the center, do a dosado, star thru, pass thru
Dosado the outside two, go full around and then
You swing thru, cast off 3/4 round
Walk & dodge and then
Boys fold, star thru and promenade
You promenade this lady around the ring you go
The queen of the big rodeo

Queen Of The Big Rodeo
 
 

Gather 'round cowboys I'll tell you a tale
A story that's hard to be told
Of a trick ridin' cowgirl we loved and we called
The queen of the big rodeo

Wherever she went she was always acclaimed
As the greatest of trick ridin' girls
Perfection and beauty were her's all alone
She was strictly the best in the world

Cowboys and cowgirls remarked of her charm
And a smile that brightened the world
Admired and chosen by many a man
As the best of the trick ridin' girls

One night in Houston the crowd was so big
There was forty-five thousand or more
She had just about finished her act for the night
One more trick the crowd waited for

A dangerous trick at the horse's full speed
A trick that had never been tried
Cowboys and cowgirls both knew if she failed
If she fell she could easily die

The ride was perfection and almost complete
Suddenly somethin' went wrong
The cinch gave away and she lost control
And at full speed she fell to the ground

Not one muscle moved as she lay where she fell
She's unconscious, one bronc buster said
But the doctor removed any doubt from our minds
When he said, the young cowgirl was dead

Not one livin' soul in the crowd made a move
They all knew that somethin' was wrong
As they took her away from the place where she lay
They knew the young cowgirl was gone

Cowboys just stood there with hats in their hands
Their heads were bowed ever so low
Not one eye was dry as we whispered, goodbye
To the queen of the big rodeo

Lyrics by Marty Robbins.
Recorded by Marty Robbins.
