Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade one time inside the ring
Get back home and swing there with your man
Join hands and circle left
Left allemande and weave the ring
We were walking in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotton

You swing your girl and all promenade
We were walking in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotton
Leaving home's the hardest thing we ever faced


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples square thru 4 hands around
Around the corner girl you dosado
Swing thru, two by two, boys run around that girl
Ferris wheel go into the middle
Pass thru, touch 1/4
Scoot back, boys fold
Girls turn thru, star thru and all promenade
We were walking in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotton
Leaving home's the hardest thing we ever faced

High Cotton Lyrics ID: 1308

We didn't know that times were lean
Round our house the grass was green
It didn't seem like things were all that bad
I bet we walked a thousand miles
Chopin' cotton and pushin' plows
And learnin' how to give it all we had.

As life went on and years went by
I saw the light in daddy's eyes
And felt the love in mama's hands
They kept us warm and kept us fed
Taught us how to look ahead
Now lookin' back, I understand.

Chorus:
We were walkin' in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin' in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.

When sunday mornings rolled around
We dressed up in hand-me downs
Just in time, together with the church
Sometimes I think how long it's been
And how it impressed me then
It was the only day my daddy wouldn't work.

Chorus x2

We were walkin' in high cotton.

Lyrics by Roger Murrah and Scott Anders.
