Harry MacDonough and the Christy Minstrels; many others 1866
  (Lore 1124)   Johnny Creel


Join up hands and circle left go round the ring with Maggie
Left allemande, come back and dosado
Men star by the right go once around that ring now
Left allemande and weave the ring you know
Go in and out around till you meet ole Maggie
Dosado and then you promenade
The green grove is gone from the hill, Maggie
Since you and I were young

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands around that ring go
With the sides you make a right hand star
Heads star left in the middle, go once around now
Pick up that corner girl from where you are
Back out and make a ring, circle to the left now
Swing the nearest girl and promenade
The old rusty mill is still, Maggie
Since you and I were young
