Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across you go
Turn and chain that lady right back home
Join hands and circle to the left
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
I got those mean California blues
Swing your girl and promenade her too
I'm lonesome as can be right here in Tennesse
That woman made a fool out of me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands you know
Find that corner lady dosado
Swing thru tonight, boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right and left thru
Flutter wheel full around that ring
Slide thru, swing and promenade
Promenade in time right on down the line
Promenade on back to Anaheim

California Blues (Blue Yodel No 4)
 
 

Well I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm goin' to California
Where they sleep out every night
I'm leaving you, mama
'Cause you know you don't treat me right

Let me tell you somethin'
Mama, that you don't know
Let me tell you somethin'
Good gal, that you don't know
Well, I'm a do right papa
And got a home everywhere I go

Yeah
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
Lord, Lord
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
I may ride the blind
I ain't got no railroad fare

Listen to me, mama
While I sing this song
Listen to your daddy
Sing you this lonesome song
You got me wearied now
But I won't be wearied long

I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
Hey, hey, hey
I got the California blues and I'm
Sure gonna leave you here
I may ride the blind
I ain't got no railroad fare

Lyrics by Jimmie Rodgers.
Recorded by Jimmie Rodgers; Bill Monroe; Merle Haggard and many others.
