Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade once around that ring
Come on back and swing that man
Join hands circle to the left
Allemande left and weave the ring
Tennessee River and a mountain man
Swing a little girl and you promenade
Tennessee River and a mountain man
We get together anytime we can


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around the ring
Come into the middle and square thru 4 hands
Go all the way and then swing thru the outside pair
Let a boy trade, the boy run, you bend the line from there
Star thru, pass thru, trade by and clap your hands
Swing your corner and promenade
Tennessee River and a mountain man
We get together anytime we can

Tennessee River
 
 

I was born across the river
In the mountains where I call home.
Lord, times were good there.
Don't know why I ever roamed

This mountain king's done left his throne
On the Tennessee River and his mountain home
But I'm goin' back, leavin' today
To my homeland, so far away

Drivin' down to Dixie, wastin' no time
Back to the good life I left behind
Goin' to the river with my fishin' line
I'm on Lookout Mountain about suppertime

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

Me and my woman's done made our plans
On the Tennessee River, walkin' hand in hand
Gonna raise a family, Lord, settle down
Where peace and love can still be found.

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We get together anytime we can.
Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
We play together in Mother Nature's band.

Lyrics by Randy Owen.
Recorded by Alabama.
