OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Won't you come home Bill Bailey, won't you come home
I moaned the whole night long

Left allemande the corner, dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Remember that rainy evening, when you came out
Swing your girl around and promenade
I know I'm to blame, baby, ain't that a shame
Bill Bailey won't you please come home


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru count 'em 4 hands round
You make a right hand star
The heads star left, roll it one time and then
Same pair and do a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys trade
Swing the corner lady round and promenade
I know I'm to blame, baby, ain't that a shame
Bill Bailey won't you please come home


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Bill Bailey won't you please come home
I moaned the whole night long
I'll do the cooking honey
I'll pay the rent, you know I done you wrong

Four ladies promenade one time
Swing your girl around and promenade
I know I'm to blame, baby, ain't that a shame
Bill Bailey won't you please come home


TAG

Bill Bailey won't you please come home alright!
