Runaround Sue
Dion 1961
  (Fine Tune 134)   Rod Shuping

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Here's my story sad but true
About a girl that I once new
She took my love she ran around
With every single guy in town

Four ladies promenade one time
Swing your girl around and promenade
Now listen people what I'm telling you
Keep away from Runaround Sue


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, roll it one time and then
Same pair and do a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
Now listen people what I'm telling you
Keep away from Runaround Sue


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain, you turn that girl and then
You rollaway, circle left go round
Four ladies roll away, circle left and go
Left allemande and weave the ring
I should have known it from the very start
This girl with leave me with a broken heart
Now listen people what I'm telling you
Keep away from Runaround Sue


TAG

Ohhhhh, keep away from that girl
I don't know what to do
Keep away from Sue!


ALTERNATE LYRICS

People let me put you wise, Sue goes out with other guys

I miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hair and her warm embrace!
So if you don't want to cry like I do
Keep away from Runaround Sue
