Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Sometimes my soul gets weary and my mind begins to wander
Like that old train, a hummin' bird, it's gone to Alabam'
They say home is where the heart is and mine's down in Dixie
Let's all go to Dixie, let's...
circle to the left and then
Southern rain goin' from the coast to Mississippi
Left allemande, promenade on home
*I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from Southern rain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain straight across the ring
Head (side) couples promenade go halfway round I sing
You lead to the right, circle, make a line for me
Rock up the middle and a come right back, star thru you see
Pass thru, trade by, pass thru, swing the corner
Left allemande new corner girl and promenade
*I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from Southern rain


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade get a walkin' round the ring
Get back home and swing the partner, everybody swing
All join hands, circle round the land and then
Allemande left the corner, weave around the ring
Southern rain is like a blessing sent from heaven
You swing the partner then you promenade on home
*I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from Southern rain


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*You may call me crazy, you may say I'm insane
But I can pray for help and hope from Southern rain

Southern Rains Lyrics ID: 1686

Sometimes my soul gets weary, and my mind begins to wander
And like that ol' train, The Hummingbird, it goes to Alabam'
They say home is where the heart is, and mine is down in Dixie
When you go down to Dixie, you're headin' for higher ground

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Southern rains, like the sunshine it's a blessin' sent from heaven
Southern rains, they can wash away your cares if you let em
You may not believe my story, and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Homesick is a feeling that a body can't get over
There's no such thing as healing, and it won't go away with time
When we're young we want to get away, when we're old we want to go back
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Southern rains, like the sunshine it's a blessin' sent from heaven
Southern rains, they can wash away your cares if you let em
You may not believe my story, and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Southern rains, blowing from the coast of Mississippi
Southern rains, I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip in the Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern rains

Lyrics by Roger Murrah.
