OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All 4 ladies chain 3/4 round today
Join hands, circle left go walking round that way
4 little ladies roll away, circle left and then
Allemande left with the corner, weave around the ring
Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
Dosado this girl, promenade the bayou beat
Set the traps in the swamp catch 'em while you can
Gotta make a livin', I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE (1)    Plus, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway round you know
Down the middle, square thru 4 hands you go
All the way around then do the right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate, and when you are through
1/2 tag, trade & roll, corner lady swing
Swing this pretty lady, promenade go round the ring
Set the traps in the swamp catch 'em while you can
Gotta make a livin', I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE (2)    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 lead to the right and circle to a line
Go forward up and back, you're doing fine
Swing thru and when you are through, men run right
Wheel & deal, face those 2, then do the right & left thru
Slide thru, pass thru, corner lady swing
Swing this pretty lady, promenade go round the ring
Set the traps in the swamp catch 'em while you can
Gotta make a livin', I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE (3)   

2 & 4 promenade halfway round you go
Lead to the right and circle 4 make 2 lines you know
Go forward 8 and back and then swing thru
Don't stop, spin the top and when you are through
Go right & left thru, turn your girl and then pass thru
Swing your corner lady, promenade go she and you
Set the traps in the swamp catch 'em while you can
Gotta make a livin', I'm a Louisiana man


FIGURE (4)   

2 & 4 lead to the right and circle 4 you know
Make 2 lines, go forward 8 and come on back you go
Touch 1/4, coordinate, and when you are through
Couples circulate then bend the line you do
Square thru 3 hands, the corner lady swing
Swing that pretty lady, promenade go round the ring
Set the traps in the swamp catch 'em while you can
Gotta make a livin', I'm a Louisiana man
