Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the 4 little ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Join up hands and circle to the station
Ladies roll a 1/2 sashay, then you circle left that way
Allemande left that corner, weave the ring now
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Why swing that girl around and you promenade
Well we'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we can all shout hallelujah all the way


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway with that maid
Walk into the middle and do the right & left thru now
Flutter wheel across that floor then you sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and then go right & left thru now
Veer to the left and ferris wheel, centers pass thru and swing
Swing the corner girl and you promenade
Well we'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we can all shout hallelujah all the way


TAG

Yes, we'll all shout hallelujah all the way

Night Train To Memphis
 
 

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
And when you arrive at the station
I'll be right there to meet you
I'll be right there to greet you
So don't turn down my invitation.

CHORUS
Halle-lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]
Halle-lu-jah! [Halle-lu-jah!]
We'll be shoutin' hallelu-jah all the day
Oh we'll have a jubilee
Down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout halle-lu-jah all the way.

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at three-fifty-seven; arrive at eleven
And I'll be shoutin' "Halle-lu-jah!"

CHORUS

Take that night train to Memphis
Take that night train to Memphis
Tell that engineer to pull the throttle open
Keep that engine stack a-smokin',
I'm not kiddin', I'm not jokin'
I'll soon be with my girl, I'm hopin'.

CHORUS

Lyrics by Beasley Smith, Marvin Hughes, and Owen Bradley.
Recorded by Roy Acuff and His Smoky Mountain Boys.
