Circle left
Why did you go away and leave me in Big Mamou?
You went away and left me alone and so blue

Walk around your corner, see saw your own
Left allemande and weave the ring, you're gone
Yaaa-eeeeeeeeeeeeee (cajun yell)
Dosado and promenade
Please come back, oh, baby come back
Come back and live with me in Big Mamou


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around you go
Find that corner lady, dosado
Swing thru and then boys run right, my friend
Bend your line and do a right & left thru
Flutter wheel, go full around
Slide thru and swing
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Hey, come back, oh, baby come on back
Come back and live with me in Big Mamou

Why did you go away and leave me in Big Mamou?
You went away and left me alone and so blue
Please come back, oh, baby come back

Turn and chain those ladies home again, promenade
Hey, ha-ha, hey, baby come back
Come back and live with me in Big Mamou
