Stay All Night
Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys; Waylon Jennings; Merle Haggard 1945
  (Quadrille 820)   Stan Brooke

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
You ought to see my blue-eyed Sally
She lives way down on Shinbone Alley
The number on the gate and the number on the door
The next house over is a greasy store

Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Take off your coat, throw it in a corner
Don't see why you don't stay a little longer


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade it's 1/2 way
Round there with your maid
Down the middle with a right & left thru
Turn a little girl, square thru and go
All the way to the outside two
Swing thru, it's two by two, boys run to the right
And then ferris wheel to the middle and go
Center two pass on thru
Touch 1/4, scoot back go
Swing the corner, promenade home


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around the left hand lady
Come on home a dopaso, partner left
Corner by the right, back to partner
Hang on tight, boys swing into the middle and star
Back right up in an allemande thar, slip the clutch
Left allemande, weave around the ring, my friend
*You can't go home if you're goin' by the mill
The bridge washed out at the bottom of the hill

Dosado when you meet your maid
Take her by the hand and you promenade


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The big creek's up and the little creek's level
Plow my corn with a double shovel
