Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All join hands, you circle left around
Stop, swing your corner lady round and round then
Allemande left and allemande thar, right and left and then star
Back up, boys, turn that star, shuffle along but not too far
Sashay round your corner, come back and swing your own
Swing her once or twice, and then you promenade home
*Drift along on your canoe
Come back home and swing your two
Floatin' down to Cotton Town


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Walk along while banjos play
In the good old fashioned way
Floatin' down to Cotton Town


FIGURE   

Head couples bow, you two, go forward, pass right thru
Go round the outside, swing the gal that came to you
Yes, swing that gal then promenade home
Head ladies chain to the right, turn 'em boys, don't let 'em roam
Four ladies chain, turn this sweet little maid
Allemande your corner, come on back and promenade
**Promenade go hand in hand, down to good old Dixieland
Floatin' down to Cotton Town


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Well, you're drifting down the stream with a lady that's a dream

**Promenade go two by two, in your leaky old canoe

**Promenade you're homeward bound, walkin' with Sweet Georgia Brown


TAG

*Drift along down Swanee shores
Come back home and swing some more
Floatin' down the river,
Good ol' Swanee River,
Floatin' down to Cotton Town

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well you walk around your corner, then bow to your own
Join your hands and around the ring you roam
Allemande your corner lady, then weave that ring
Weave it around til you meet again
Dosado, then you take her and swing
Yes, swing, promenade her and sing
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the Lonesome Pine


FIGURE   

Two head gents take your corners to the middle and back
Same old four circle left around the track
Left hand star, go home, allemande right your own
Left hand round your corner, then go back home
Dosado then your corners you'll swing
Yes, swing, promenade her and sing
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the Lonesome Pine

Floatin' Down To Cotton Town
 
 

I just dropped in to see you all and say
I leave today, I'm on my way
I'm goin' back to sunny Dixieland
That's why I came to shake you by the hand
The minute when I cross that Dixie Line
No more I'll pine, won't that be fine?
Mister Captain, don't fail me, just hurry and sail me
To that gal of mine

Floatin' down, my honey, floatin' down
Floatin' on the river down Cotton Town
Just hear that whistle toot toot tootin' away
And those darkies singin', banjos ringin' 'till the break of day
Honey lamb, my little honey lamb
I'll come back to you in Alabam'
While fields of sugar cane seem to welcome me again
Floatin' down to Cotton Town

Just see those southern roses 'long the shore
There's just one more I'm longing for
The cotton blossoms in the moonlight fair
Remind me of my mammy's snow white hair
Just hear that music 'neath the southern moon
While darkies croon a Dixie tune
Mister Captain you've hurried, but don't keep me worried
Land me there right soon

Floatin' down, my honey, floatin' down
Floatin' on the river down Cotton Town
Just hear that whistle toot toot tootin' away
And those darkies singin', banjos ringin' 'till the break of day
Honey lamb, my little honey lamb
I'll come back to you in Alabam'

I saw a field of blossoms, and they've been long forgotten
I saw my dear old mammy standing by the cabin door

While fields of sugar cane seem to welcome me again
Floatin' down to Cotton Town

Composed by F. Henri Klickmann.
Lyrics by Jack Frost.
Recorded by The American Quartet; Fats Waller; Frankie Laine; Chet Atkins; many others.

Trail Of The Lonesome Pine
 
 

On a mountain in Virginia
Stands a lonesome pine
Just below is the cabin home of a little girl of mine
Her name is June and very very soon
She'll belong to me
For I know she's waiting there for me 'neath that lone pine tree

In the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome pine
In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine
Where she carves her name and I carved mine
Oh June like the mountains I am blue
Like the pines, I'm lonesome for you

In the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome pine
In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine
Where she carves her name and I carved mine
Oh June like the mountains I am blue
Like the pines, I'm lonesome for you

Composed by Harry Carroll.
Lyrics by Ballard MacDonald.
Recorded by Hal "Lone" Pine and his Mountaineers with Betty Cody; many others.
