Old Man River   (Grenn 12403)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER    Basic

Circle to the left
Old man river, that old man river
Men star right now, one time around somehow
Allemande left and then grand right & left
It's hand in hand until you meet her once again
Turn your partner by the right, left allemande tonight
Come on back one and then, promenade around the ring
That old man river, he just keeps rolling along


FIGURE (1 & 4)    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides face, grand square
You and me, we sweat and strain
Body all aching, and wracked with pain
Tote that barge, lift that bail
Get a little drunk

Heads (sides) square thru you know
Four hands around the set, hey now the corner swing
Swing that lady fair, promenade around the square
That old man river, he just keeps rolling along
Rolling along


FIGURE (2 & #)   

Heads (sides) right & left thru you know
Same couples square thru four hands around
Sides (heads) face, grand square - go
Head (side) couples cloverleaf
Heads (sides) come into the middle of the ring
Star thru, then pass thru, allemande left
Go back and dosado the partner now
Swing the corner girl, promenade around that world
That old man river, he just keeps rolling along
* Rolling along

(* Use at end of Fig. #3: Sides (or Heads) face grand square)


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

(Well those) Four ladies chain across, turn a little girl and you don't get lost
Join up your hands, circle to the left around the ring and then
Allemande left your corner, turn the partner by the right
Men star by the left, straight across, turn the opposite lady by the right
Then allemande left, come back
Swing your lady fair, promenade around the square
That old man river, he just keeps rolling along
Rolling along
