Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
My daddy was an old time preacher man
He preached the word of God throughout the land

Allemande left your corner, turn your partner by the right
Allemande left and weave the ring
Daddy was an old time preacher man
Swing the girl and promenade that land
It's all so near and far all across the land
Daddy was an old time preacher man


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around
Come down the middle and square thru to 4
Go all the way and then do a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel once more
Square thru 3/4 round, swing your girl and
promenade
It's so near and far all across the land
Daddy was an old time preacher man


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
In the sweet bye and bye
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
I'm on my way to Canaan land
Daddy was an old time preacher man

Four ladies chain across you know
Then chain 'em back, promenade and go
It's so near and far all across the land
Daddy was an old time preacher man

Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man Lyrics ID: 1169

Daddy was an old time preacher man
He preached the word of God throughout the land
He preached so plain a child could understand
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

He told the people of the need to pray
He talked about God's wrath on Judgement Day
He preached about that great eternity
He breathed hell so hot that you could feel the heat
Daddy was an old time preacher man and Leona would get up to testify
And we'd sing in the sweet by and by then we'd sing I'm on my way to Canaan Land
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

Revivals and camps meetin's with four weeks
Folks came from all around to hear him preach
Daddy said if one is saved it's worth it all
But the aisles were allways filled at altar calls
Daddy was an old time preacher man...

Daddy worked for God but asked no pay for he believed that God provides away
We never had a lot but we got by yes it's cause the Lord was on my daddy's side
Daddy was an old time preacher man
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
I'm on my way to Canaan's Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
I'm on my way to Canaan Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man

Lyrics by Dolly Parton and Dorothy Jo Hope.
Recorded by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton.
