Careless Love
Bessie Smith; Fats Domino; Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee; Lonnie Johnson; many others 1911
  (Lore 1003)   Max Engle

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Walk around your corner, turn a right hand round your pet
The men star left, go walking round that set
Turn your partner right, once and a half you go
Ladies star left once around you know
Home you go and do a dosado
Allemande left and promenade your own
Promenade that ring, throw your head right back and sing
It's love, oh love, oh careless love!

FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Left allemande and swing your partner round
Heads square thru full around that inside town
With the side two 1/2 square thru
Face right out, that's what you do
Make two lines, go up and back, California twirl
Cross trail and swing new corner girl
Allemande new corner one, pass by the one you swung
Promenade the next one there
Go walking round the big old square
It's love, oh love, oh careless love!
