Holding The Bag
Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley 1979
  (Windsor 5100)   Russ Young

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Do an allemande left in the alamo style, you balance in and out
Swing thru, go two by two, you balance again
Swing thru go two by two, those boys run right
Do a partner trade, left allemande, weave, weave tonight
Don't you think it's gettin' pretty heavy to drag
Swing that girl around and promenade her, don't lag
You think it's funny, but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru four hands you go
To that corner lady do a dosado, make an ocean wave
Linear cycle, then you move it across the floor
And when you're through, slide thru, and a right & left thru
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 around
Swing that corner lady, promenade that old town
You think it's funny, but it ain't no gag
How come you always leave me holdin' the bag?
