Ballin' The Jack
Al Jolson and Eddie Cantor; The Chordettes; many others 1913
  (Longhorn 144)   Bill Peters

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join your hands and circle left with all of your might
Reverse back, single file and turn it to the right
Girls backtrack, partner box the gnat
You pull 'em by, left allemande, weave around the track
Go in and out around way out in space
Partner dosado with such a style and grace
Promenade 'em on back, hurry round that ol' track
That's what I call ballin' the Jack


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Allemande left corner, partner dosado
Heads lead right, circle 4 you know
Heads you break and make a line, you move it up and back
Go right & left thru, turn 'em too, dixie chain on back
Lady go left, gent go right, swing the corner right there
Left allemande new corner, promenade round the square
You promenade back, hurry round that ol' track
That's what I call ballin' the Jack
