Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A
 

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

It's all around your corner and you see saw your pal
Go back to the corner and you swing with that gal
Join your hands and make a ring and circle the land
Whirlaway, go right & left grand around that ole land
Meet with your partner and you turn back you do
Pass one, swing the next, that pretty gal dressed in blue
Gents star left across to ma and promenade your taw
We'll wear our glad rags tonight my honey
Swing at the square dance tonight


FIGURE   

Head two couples forward, come back to the ring
Now cross trail behind the sides, the opposite swing
Separate and head for home and box that ole flea
Star by the left out in the middle, don't you agree
You're gonna pick up your corner in a star promenade
Inside gals you roll away with a half sashay
Gals turn back and meet that same ole gent with a twirl
Promenade in glad rags tonight my honey
We're wearin' glad rags tonight
Cue Sheet side B
 

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, corner progression

It's all around your corner and you see saw your taw
Now join up hands and circle left around that big ol' hall
Go the other way back, single file, lady lead the way
Now gents turn back and meet that gal, dosado is what I say
Now pass her by, left allemande, a right hand to your taw
Go right & left around the ring, watch out for her paw
Then promenade but don't bring roses, I did once you see
And roses and revolvers are gonna be the death of me


FIGURE   

All around your corner, partner left like an allemande thar
Back up boys with the right hand in and now you spread that star
Box the flea, the girls to the middle, back up once again
A left hand swing, your corner by the right, a wrong way thar and then
Boys back up, a left hand in and now you spread that star
Box the gnat, girls duck in and back up in that star
Now box the gnat just one more time, take her on home you see
Roses and revolvers are gonna be the death of me

Glad Rags
 
 

Now honey, you do the dishes and I'll feed the old sow
Also the chickens and our one Jersey cow
Take down your curlers and powder your nose
Big time at Jones' place, so wear your best clothes
There'll be no evening gowns, not even a tux
They'll come in wagons, buggies and pick-up trucks
We'll do square dancin' under kerosene light
We'll wear glad rags tonight, my honey
We'll wear glad rags tonight

Big time at Jones' place, so wear your best clothes

Silvester comin', hum and fiddle a tune
Red headed kids will swipe away his spittoon
Then run and hide behind a bale of hay
But that old sittin' hen will scare 'em away
Look for me beside the old cider keg
I'll set my cup down and we'll both shake a leg
Never a ballroom had a prettier sight
We'll wear glad rags tonight, my honey
We'll wear glad rags tonight

Lyrics by Johnny Bond.
Recorded by Johnny Bond; Tennessee Ernie Ford; others.
