Sloop John B   (Riverboat 200)   Bob Elling
OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
We came on the Sloop John B, my grandfather and me
And around Nassau town we did roam
We were drinking all night, got into a fight
Lord, I feel so broke up, well I wanna go home

Circle left
We're gonna hoist up the John B sails, see how the main sail sets
Call for the captain ashore, I wanna go home

Do an allemande left, swing your own, promenade along
Lord I feel so broke up, well I wanna go home


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Now the head (side) two ladies chain, sides roll away
The sides star thru and then do a dosado
Make your wave, spin chain & exchange the gears and go
Go all the way around the ring and make those stars
And go, the boys follow the girls, go all the way you know
Now swing with the corner girl, promenade home
We were drinking all night, got into a fight
Well, Lord I feel so broke up, well I want to go home


MIDDLE BREAK    Plus

Head ladies to the center, tea cup chain
We came on the Sloop John B, my grandfather and me
And around Nassau town we did roam
We were drinking all night, got into a fight
Lord, I feel so broke up, well I wanna go home

Circle left
We're gonna hoist up the John B sails, see how the main sail sets
Call for the captain ashore, I wanna go home

Do an allemande left and swing your own, promenade along
Lord I feel so broke up, well I wanna go home


TAG

Swing your own
Lord I feel so broke up, I wanna go home
