INTRO

I'm gonna lay around the shack 'til the mail-train comes back
Just rollin' in my sweet baby's arms


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies (men) promenade once around gonna get on home and then
Swing your man around and round I sing
Join up your hands, circle left, go walking 'round the ring
Left allemande the corner, weave around the ring
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Swing the lady then you promenade back home
I'm gonna lay around the shack 'til the mail-train comes back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around to the corner waiting there
Right hand star, turn it once around the square
Heads you star left in the middle, all the way 'round to the corner lady
Square thru and go, but on your third hand swing thru and then
You'd better swing thru again
Boys run to the right, you promenade her home
I'm gonna lay around the shack 'til the mail-train comes back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
