Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

All 8 teacup stroll (32 beats) or teacup chain
Sides face grand square (32 beats)


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) promenade go halfway around
Walk into the middle, square thru go 4
Four hands and then, let's do the right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, touch 1/4 do
Scoot back and then, scoot back again
Swing your corner, promenade
Do they laugh, do they sing, square dance and everything
If it's true, that's where I belong


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Allemande left with your corner, let's do a little dosado
Four men star by the left once you go
Star promenade your partner, go walking with your man
All four ladies backtrack twice around and then
Turn thru with your partner, the corner allemande
Come on back and promenade her home
Do they laugh, do they love like they say in every song
If it's true, that's where I belong

Is It True What They Say About Dixie
 
 

Is it true what they say about Dixie
Does the sun really shine all the time
Do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door
Do the folks keep eating possum til they can't eat no more

Is it true what they say about Swanny
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh, do they love, like they say in every song
If it's true that's where I belong

Is it true what they say about Dixie
Does the sun really shine all the time
Well do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door
Do the folks keep eating that possum til they can't eat no more

Is it true what they say about Swanny
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh, love, like they say in every song
If it's true that's where I belong

Lyrics by Irving Caesar, Sammy Lerner and Gerald Marks.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Jimmy Dorsey; Dean Martin; others.
