Four ladies promenade go once around the ring
You're gonna get on back and swing your man around
You join hands circle go movin' round you go then
Allemande left come back and weave the ring
Wind in and out around ya go all the way around
Swing the girl around ya gonna go and promenade
Hey, look at her run, look at her sail
Look at her bye, bye, bye Fireball Mail

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two you square thru and ya get 4 hands around
All the way around, find the corner dosado around
Ang then you swing thru, you spin the top you go
Boys move up and right & left thru and turn the girl

Look at her bye, bye, bye Fireball Mail


You do allemande left with the corner
Come back and dosado with the partner
Then bow to partner, corner too, then whoa!

Fireball Mail

Here she comes - look at her roll
There she goes - eatin' that coal
Watch her fly - look at her sail
Let her by, by, by - it's the Fireball Mail.


Let her go - look at her steam
Hear her blow - whistle and scream
Like a hound - waggin' his tail
Dallas bound, bound, bound - the Fireball Mail.

Engineer - makin' up time
Tracks are clear - look at her climb
See that freight - clearin' the rail
Bet she's late, late, late - the Fireball Mail.

Watch her swerve - look at her sway
Get that curve - out of the way
Watch her fly - look at her sail
Let her by, by, by - the Fireball Mail.

Lyrics by Floyd Jenkins.
Recorded by Roy Acuff.
