Rockabye Your Baby
Al Jolson 1918
  (Chinook 131)   Daryl Clendenin


Sides face, grand square
Rockabye your baby with a Dixie melody
When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie

4 ladies chain, just hang that cradle mammy mine
Chain them back, on that Mason-Dixon line
Promenade, and swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee with all the love that's in ya

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru go 4 now, you make a right hand star
Heads star left, one time you bet, same two touch 1/4
Scoot back and then, scoot back again
Swing the corner lady, promenade my friend
Rockabye your Rockabye baby with a Dixie melody

CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Weep no more my lady, won't you sing that song for me
Soft and low just as though you had me on your knee

4 ladies chain, a million baby kisses I'll deliver
Chain 'em back and promenade, the Swanee River
Rockabye your Rockabye baby with a Dixie melody
