Ol' Slew Foot The Bear   (Prairie 1019)   Claude Ross
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*High on the mountain, baby, what do you see?
Bear tracks, bear tracks, looking back at me

Left allemande that corner one, dosado your own
Left allemande that corner lady, weave the ring you go
Big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
You swing your lady round and round, promenade you go
Ain't never been caught, he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I saved up my money and bought me some bees
They started making honey way up in the trees


*Winter's coming on and it's twenty below
The river's froze over so where can he go?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head pair you square thru, go moving four hands round
All the way around, dosado the corner one you know
Swing thru well two by two, spin the top, my friend
Boys move up, right & left thru, turn the girl and then
Square thru and go now 3/4 round that ring
Swing the corner lady, promenade that pretty thing
Ain't never been caught, he ain't never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Same as Mountain 111.
