The Old Red Barn
Redd Harper; Texas Jim Lewis 1948
  (Dash 2537)   Singin' Sam Mitchell

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left in the Alamo style, you balance out and in
Box the gnat and pull on by, the corner allemande
A grand right & left as you walk around the ring
When you meet with your lady, you will swing
Swing and whirl then allemande the corner waiting there
Dosado your own and you promenade the square
Promenade the ring boys, you're gonna step it light
To a square dance in the old red barn tonight


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

First and third lead out to the right, circle round the track
You break to a line and move it up and back
Pass thru and wheel & deal, then double pass thru
First two left, the next two right and do a right & left thru
*Turn the girls and square thru 3/4 'round I sing
Move onto the next and cross trail, your corner swing
Swing and whirl and promenade
**You're gonna step it light
To a square dance in the old red barn tonight


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Square thru 3/4 'round and make a line I sing
You bend the line and cross trail, the corner swing

**I could dance all night, we'll dance 'til broad daylight
