Pick Me Up On Your Way Down
Charlie Walker; Patsy Cline; Jerry Lee Lewis; others 1958
  (Lore 1021)   Johnny Creel

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and make a ring, circle 8 go round that ring
Reverse back single file, single file for a while
Girls back track around that town, turn your partner right hand round
Corners all left allemande, walk right in a right & left grand
As you travel round that town, pick me up on your way down
Swing your partner round, allemande left that corner maid
Come back one promenade, get back home and settle down
When you're tired of fooling round, pick me up on your way down


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

1 & 3 star thru, then you do a right & left thru
Turn your girl, pass thru, and you split the outside two
Around just one not too far, in the middle a right hand star
Go once around that land, corners all left allemande
Then you walk right by your Jane, and the next girl you swing
Those gents star left, not too far, go once around that ring
Pick her up on your way down, star promenade go round that town
When you've lost the love you found, pick me up on your way down


TAG

Swing your gal round and round, pick me up on your way down
