California Blues
Jimmie Rodgers; Bill Monroe; Merle Haggard and many others 1928
  (Lore 1191)   Johnny Creel

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies chain, chain across that ring
Chain those ladies right back home again
Join up hands and circle left you know
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring you go
I've got those mean old California blues
Dosado your girl and promenade her too
I'm just as lonesome as can be
That woman made a wreck out of me


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway round that ring
Come down the middle do a curlique, walk & dodge and then
Swing thru go 2 by 2, boys run to the right
Bend the line, rock up and back, and then go right & left thru
Slide thru and square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing your corner girl then promenade you know
I'm just as lonesome as can be
That woman made a wreck out of me
