Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Hey allemande left that corner, forward two you know
Make an allemande thar, the men back in and star
Shoot that star, full turn, right to the corner pull on by
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring
On a highway headed south somewhere in Dixie
Do a dosado and promenade you see
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in the southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round that ring
Sides square thru and go four hands
Do a dosado that outside two and make an ocean wave
All eight circulate, girls trade
Swing thru, swing the corner round
Do an allemande left, come back and promenade
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in the southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

Highway Headin' South
 
 

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

North Dakota you've got my better years
Montana you've got five years of my life
But your subzero wind will never touch me again
Southern folks can't live on snow and ice

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

When I cross the Dixie line I'll throw away my coat
And my good down underwear will have to go
I'll never live again where the weather chills you to the bone
I'm tired of livin' like an Eskimo

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in spring and snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chilly bones in southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

Lyrics by Porter Wagoner.
Recorded by Porter Wagoner.
