Rock-A-Bye
Al Jolson 1918
  (MacGregor 1019)   Scotty Langlands

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    A1

Dosado the corner
Turn a left hand round your own
Men star right it's once around, once around that ring you roam
Allemande, now weave the line
In and out now keep in time
Promenade when you meet your baby
Promenade I don't mean maybe
1 & 3 you wheel around, go right & left thru and then
Cross trail, left allemande, then promenade that ring
Promenade your ragtime baby
Walk along that Swanee river
Swing with your rock-a-bye baby
To a dixie melody


FIGURE   

1 & 3 you promenade halfway around the town
Go right & left thru, turn your girl
Square thru 3/4 round
Separate round one you go
Make a line, now don't be slow
Line of 4 go up and back now
Spin the wheel*, go cross the track now
Center 4 pass thru, swing the corner lady round
Allemande left, promenade go walkin' round that town
Promenade a brand new baby
Promenade I don't mean maybe
Swing with your rock-a-bye baby
To a dixie melody


*Spin the wheel: in lines of 4, center 2 go right & left thru, ends pass thru, star
thru behind those two.

February, 1964.
