Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade once inside the ring
Back home swing with your man
Join hands, circle to the left around you go
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
*Take the night train to Memphis, take the night train to Memphis
Swing your lady around and promenade
And we'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout hallelujah all the way


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Take the night train to Memphis, take the night train to Memphis
You know how I'm longin' to see you
Leave at 3:57, arrive at 11
And I'll be shoutin' hallelujah all the way


*Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
We'll be shoutin' hallelujah all the day
And we'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout hallelujah all the way


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go
Come down the middle square thru go two
Swing thru and then, boys run to the right
Ferris wheel, center pass thru, touch 1/4
Scoot back, your corner lady swing
Swing your lady around and promenade
We'll have a jubilee down in Memphis, Tennessee
And we'll shout hallelujah all the way


TAG

We'll shout hallelujah, shout hallelujah
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.
