Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised

Allemande that corner girl, you're gonna dosado your own you whirl
Boys star left in the middle and roll it round you go
Turn your partner by the right, to the corner allemande
Swing your own and promenade
And I've got that Delta dirt Lord
I've got the black land Delta dirt down in my veins


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm going home this morning
If I have to walk, run or fly


*I'm going home to Delta Momma
Cause she's got everything to cure my aches and pains


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru in the middle go four now
Go all the way round and a right & left thru
Swing thru go two by two, the boys run right
1/2 tag, scoot back and you move on around tonight
The boys run right, square thru 3/4 round that land
Swing that corner and you promenade
And I've got that Delta dirt Lord
I've got the black land Delta dirt down in my veins


TAG

Honey, in my veins

Delta Dirt
 
 

I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised
I suffered through the Oklahoma dry lands
And through New York City's cold and rainy days

And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Just once again to feel them Mississippi rains

Lord, I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins
In my veins, added in my veins
(In my veins, added in my veins)

I'm goin' home this mornin' if I have to walk, run or fly
I promised me as sure as I was standin'
That I'm never, ever gonna say goodbye
'Cause this heart of mine keeps tellin' me I'm crazy
To keep on wearin' the city's ball and chain

When I got that Delta dirt Lord
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Lord, New York is mighty pretty
If you don't mind what you say
But I'd take a hundred acres of black land dirt
Over Detroit, New York and L.A.

I'm goin' home to Delta mama
'Cause she's got everything
Gonna cure my aches and pains
And I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

I got it in my veins
(In my veins)
I got it in my veins
(Got it in my veins)
Lord, I got it in my veins

Lyrics by Larry Gatlin.
Recorded by The Gatlin Brothers.
