OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Left allemande that corner, walk back a dosado
Men star left, it's once around that ring you're gonna go
Turn partner right, a wrong way thar, men swing in a left hand star
Shoot the star, left allemande, weave around that ring
When you meet that lady you promenade I sing
Promenade your lady, movin two by two
She's mean and evil through and through


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Well now the heads curlique, you do the walk & dodge
Circle up four and make that line, walk up to the middle and then come back
You pass thru with a wheel & deal, pass thru do a dosado
You swing thru and then why don't you turn thru
You swing the corner lady, promenade her too
She looks like an angel but I say she's a devil
She's mean and evil through and through


CLOSER   

Sides face, grand slide (or square)
It's hangin' day in Wolf City, Wyoming
Wolf City, Wyoming, eighteen ninety four
They're gonna drop Cat Ballou through the gallows floor

Four ladies chain, turn the girl around
Star 'em back tonight
You do a dopaso and turn the corner right
Turn partner left and do a roll promenade
She's mean and evil through and through

The Ballad Of Cat Ballou
 
 

Well now friends just lend an ear
For you're now about to hear
The ballad of Cat Ballou
It's a song that's newly made
And Professus and the Shade
And the Sunrise Kid are singin' it for you

Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou
It's a hangin' day in Wolf City Wyomin'
Wolf City Wyomin', eighteen ninety four
They're gonna drop Cat Ballou through the gallows floor

She killed a man in Wolf City Wyomin'
Wolf City Wyomin' killed a man it's true
And that is why they're a-hangin'
Hangin' Cat Ballou

She has the smile of an angel (fights like the devil)
The eyes of an angel (bites like the devil)
The face of an angel (I say she's the devil)
(She's mean and evil through and through)
Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through

With her outlaw band they're now tellin' a story
Now tellin' a story how she rode the plain
The wildest gal in the west since Calamity Jane
And today's the day that she's goin' to glory
She's goin' to glory for the way she sinned
They'll be a-speedin' her soul on a wayward wind

She has the smile of an angel (fights like the devil)
The eyes of an angel (bites like the devil)
The face of an angel (I say she's the devil)
(She's mean and evil through and through)
Cat Ballou (Cat Ballou)
Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou (Cat Ballou)

She's mean and evil through and through Cat Ballou
Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through

Composed by Jerry Livingston.
Lyrics by Mack David.
Recorded by Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye.
