Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Blue light flashing down the railroad track
Blue smoke falling from the old smoke stack
Oh, blue train,...don't leave me behind

4 ladies chain across the ring
You turn and chain 'em back again
Roll promenade
Down the heartbreak railroad line


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads (sides) touch 1/4, then boys run right
You circle 1/2 to a 2-faced line
Wheel & deal, do an eight chain thru
Don't leave me behind
Let me ride till I lose

Corner swing and promenade her, too
Oh, blue train,...
Of the heartbreak railroad line

Blue Train (Of the Heartbreak Line)
 
 

Blue light flashing down the railroad track
Blue smoke boiling from the ole smoke stack
Oh Blue Train don't leave me behind

Blue steam flying from the blue choo choo
Wheels a whining a lonesome blues
Oh Blue Train on the heartbreak railroad line too doo too too too

My baby said she loved me true
Then she ran off with someone new
Oh Blue Train don't leave me behind
Yeah let me ride till I lose these doggone awful blues
Oh Blue Train on the heartbreak railroad line too doo too too too

Blue Train you're coming in on time
Blue train you're coming in on time
Cause I just lost that lovey of a-mine
Blue Train of the heartbreak railroad line too doo too too too

Lyrics by John D. Loudermilk.
Recorded by Roy Acuff Jr.
