Patriotic Medley   (Blue Star 2025)   Jerry Helt, Johnnie Wykoff
OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Yankee Doodle went to town a riding on a pony
Stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni

Allemande left your corner, partner box the gnat
All the ladies promenade once inside the set
Turn your partner by the right, full around you go
Allemande left with the corner, come back and promeno
Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step and with the girls be handy


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade go halfway around the floor
2 & 4 (1 & 3) pass thru, around one make a line of four
Go forward eight to the middle and come on back
Star thru, all double pass thru
Lead couple partner trade, make a right hand star
Go once around, girls turn back, swing and promenade her
Promenade with the lady fair, walk that gal around the square
*Yes, we'll all be glad when Johnny comes marching home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*We are proud to claim the title of the United States Marines

MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I'm a Yankee Doodle dandy
Yankee Doodle, do or die

Allemande left your corner, partner box the gnat
All the ladies promenade once inside the set
Turn your partner by the right, full around you go
Allemande left with the corner, come back and promeno
Oh, Yankee Doodle came to town a riding on his pony
I am that Yankee Doodle boy


FIGURE   

1 & 3 (2 & 4) promenade go halfway around the floor
2 & 4 (1 & 3) pass thru, around one make a line of four
Go forward eight to the middle and come on back
Star thru, all double pass thru
Lead couple partner trade, make a right hand star
Go once around, girls turn back, swing and promenade her
Promenade with the lady fair, walk that gal around the square
**We'll look up with hearts that are free
And from afar we'll see stars and stripes forever


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Should auld acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Oh beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain

Allemande left your corner, partner box the gnat
All the ladies promenade once inside the set
Turn your partner by the right, full around you go
Allemande left with the corner, come back and promeno
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea
