Muskrat Ramble
Louis Armstrong; The McGuire Sisters; many others 1926
  (Lore 1038)   Johnny Creel

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left, allemande thar, go right and left make a star
Men back up right hand star, shoot it full around
Corner right, wrong way thar, men back up left hand star
Shoot that star, left allemande, let's weave around that land
Gonna dance that muskrat ramble tune
Box the gnat when you meet your maid
Pull her by, left allemande, promenade that gal back home
Let's ramble along


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads go forward back away, square thru 4 hands I say
Count 4 hands when you're through, eight chain thru you do
See them shuffle and scuffle down
Ramble and scramble heading for town

*Who do you think's about to arrive, right & left thru with the sides
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 round
That corner lady swing, allemande new corner now
All together now, come back one and promenade
You're gonna promenade that gal back home
Let's ramble along


ALTERNATE PATTER FOR THE SIDES

*Eight chain thru, that's what I said, right & left thru with the heads
