Cue Sheet


Circle to the left
The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance, oh me, oh my

Allemande that corner, dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Cajun moon, nugget of gold
Swing your girl and promenade her
You're just like rain to a love in bloom
Shine on me oh, Cajun moon

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway around you go
Down the middle, pass the ocean you know
Extend and swing thru and then spin the top
Boys move up a right & left thru and turn 'em pop
Now square thru 3 hands around you go
Swing the corner lady and promenade her home
You're just like rain to a love in bloom
Shine on me oh, Cajun moon


Sides face, grand square
Guitar and squeeze box, fiddle and bow
Little band a-playing every song they know
Old women sitting there a yelling for more
My heart is willing, but my feet they're so sore

Four ladies chain, turn that girl
Chain 'em back and promenade around the world
You're just like rain to a love in bloom
Shine on me oh, Cajun moon

Cajun Moon

The moon is full and my heart is high
I love to dance, oh me oh my
Gonna have more fun than a tree and a coon
Tonight's the dance of the Cajun moon

Pickups and wagons 'round the railroad shack
Bonfires are drawin' in a crowd out back
Step through the door and I see my Cheri
That's when I feel her mama's eyes on me

Cajun moon, nugget of gold, river of light on the bayou
You're just like rain to a love in bloom, so
Shine on me, oh Cajun moon

Guitar, a squeeze box, a fiddle and bow
Little band a-playin' every song they know
Ol' woman sittin' there and yellin' for more
My heart is willin' but my feet, they're so sore!


Once more we're waltzin' to Jolie Blonde
I lean in closer and Cheri responds
Her mama's smilin' as we slip from the room
To sit and stare at the Cajun moon

(chorus x2)

Lyrics by Jim Rushing.
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs.
