Cue Sheet


Heads in grand parade
Well I caught me a train that put me off in Memphis
There was a railroad bull, waiting in the yard for me
He asked me where I'm from, I said from Texas
He said, now you're a guest in Tennessee
Then he loaded me up and took me to the station
And told the judge to throw the book at me
After thirty days sweeping them streets in Memphis
That judge has made a Texan out of me

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four little ladies chain, go straight across that ring
Head (side) two couples flutter wheel, full around I sing
Star thru, pass thru, circle four and make a line
Rock up to the middle and come on back, star thru
You pass thru, trade by, pass thru and swing
Left allemande new corner girl and promenade that ring
After thirty days sweeping them streets in Memphis
That judge has made a Texan out of me
