Camptown Races
Bing Crosby; Johnny Mercer; Al Jolson; many others 1850

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Circle left
Started to town and my hoss brown down
Doo-da, doo-da
Blacksmith shop on the other side of town
Oh, doo-da-day

Left allemande the corner girl, dosado your own
Men star by the old left hand, one time around you go
Turn the partner by the right, corners allemande
Dosado and promenade, go walking around the land
I'm gwine to run all night, I'm gwine to run all day
I bet my money on a bobbed tail nag
Somebody bet on the bay


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) gonna promenade halfway round you go
Come into the middle and curlique, walk & dodge, go
Circle four halfway, veer to the left and then
Ferris wheel, move it up and square thru 3 hands
3 hands around go, swing thru the outside two, turn thru,
Swing the corner, promenade you do
I'm gwine to run all night, I'm gwine to run all day
I bet my money on a bobbed tail nag
Somebody bet on the bay

Figure has 'centers square thru 3' followed by 'swing thru', a bad hand usage for the centers.
