Just Because / Ramblin' Wreck
Nelstone's Hawaiians 1929
  (Windsor 7404)   Doc Alumbaugh

OPENER   

It's honors to your partner and to your corners all
Now swing that opposite lady, she's the gal across the hall
Then come back home and swing your own, you swing with all your might
And thank your lucky stars she's the one you brought tonight
Allemande left with the old left hand, a right to your partner and right & left grand
It's a grand old right and left around the ring
Then you promenade your partner, boys, shout and sing with joy
Because, just because


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two ladies chain across, chain across that ring
Turn 'em around and chain 'em back and give that gal a swing
Then the two side ladies chain across, chain across that ring
Turn 'em around and chain 'em back and give that gal a swing
Allemande left your corner, allemande right your own
Go back and swing that corner round and round
Then you promenade this corner maid, shout and sing with joy
Because, just because


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

It's all around your corner, she's the gal from Arkansas
See saw round your partner, she's the prettiest in the hall
Four gents center with a right hand star, star by the old right hand
Go all the way round to your corner with a two-time allemande
You turn 'em once, turn 'em twice, then back right off and bow real nice
It's a grand old right & left around that ring, then you promenade this pretty thing
Throw your head right back and sing
Because, just because
