Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around your corner girl, see saw around your taw
Gents star right once around to the corner go
Allemande left the corner, turn a right hand around your own
Gents star left once again, around the ring you roam
Turn partners all a right hand around, to the corner allemande
Grand old right and left around, when you meet her promenade
Promenade eight with a happy gait, I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the home town of my heart


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands around you do
When you meet the outside two, do a right & left thru
Veer to the left and then, couples circulate
Wheel & deal to the middle and do the right & left thru
Square thru 3/4, trade by and swing
Swing the corner lady, now you promenade
Promenade eight with a happy gait, I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the home town of my heart

Eight More Miles To Louisville
 
 

I've traveled over this country wide seeking fortune fair
Up and down the two coast lines I've traveled everywhere
From Portland East to Portland West back along the line
I'm going now to the place that's best that old hometown of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

There's bound to be a gal somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a traveling through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home
A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam
The place that's right for that love sight is in those bluegrass hills
Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Eight more miles and Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the hometown of my heart

Lyrics by Louis Marshall "Grandpa" Jones.
