What It Means To Be Lonesome
The Carter Family; Ricky Skaggs; many others 1918
  (Lore 1088)   Allen Tipton

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Join hands and circle, go walking around I say
With the corner girl you'll whirl a half sashay, circle left
And then you allemande and allemande thar, forward 2 & star
Men back in and make a star
Slip the clutch, left allemande, and weave that ring
So lonesome and then you'll promenade
Oh, I know what it means to be lonesome in dreams
I know what it means to be blue


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head 2 ladies chain the ring, you'll turn the girl and then
Those heads lead right, circle 4 and make a line
Go up to the middle and back you do, and now star thru
Dosado and make an ocean wave, balance too
Swing thru and when you do, swing that corner maid
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Oh, I know what it means to be lonesome in dreams
I know what it means to be blue
