OPENER



Circle Left
Right outside of the one church town
there's an old dirt road to a whole lot of nothin'
The men star right roll it one time round, this is God's country
Left Allemande and Weave
We pray for rain and thank him when it's fallen
Cause it brings the grain and a little bit of money
put it back in the plate I guess that's why they call it
God's country

FIGURE



Heads promenade and go half way round
Then you're gonna pass the ocean then, extend and go
Swing thru and then, the boys run right
the couples circulate, Ferris Wheel
You do a double pass thru and the leaders partner trade
Swing the corner lady and you all promenade
When it's my time lay me six feet deep
in God's Country



MIDDLE BREAK
Grand Square

I saw the light in the sunrise
Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
Gettin' baptized in holy water and Moonshine
with the dogs runnin'
Allemande Left and you Weave
Saved by the Sound of the Been Saved
Dixie Whistled in the Wind, Thatíll get you Heaven Bound
The Devil Went Down to Georgia but He Didnít Stick Around
This is Godís Country



CLOSER

Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
Gettin' baptized in holy water and Moonshine

Allemande Left and you Weave
Saved by the Sound of the Been Saved
Dixie Whistled in the Wind, Thatíll get you Heaven Bound
The Devil Went Down to Georgia but He Didnít Stick Around
