Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Well now you honor your partners all,
Gents star right across the hall
A left hand swing then star 3/4 back
Allemande left ol' arkansaw, grand ol' right & left the hall
Go right and left, til you meet your taw
Detour, turn back two, you're not through yet
Detour, turn back two, and there's your pet
Promenade down that windin' road ahead
Should have read that detour sign


FIGURE   

Allemande left that corner gal, then a right hand round your pal
Then the ladies promenade inside the square
Dosado and watch 'em smile, ladies lead go single file
Gents turn back, on the outside track
*Detour, there's a bridge out dead ahead
Detour
, pass 'er two times up ahead
Swing your gal, no, the corner girl instead!
Should have read that detour sign


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Detour, there's a speed cop up ahead

*Detour, there's a road block up ahead

*Detour, there's a barricade ahead


(Notes on Figure:
Allemande left corners, take right hand swing with partners, ladies promenade
CCW full around inside of square back to partner. Partners dosado and all promenade single file CCW around set, ladies in front of their gent, then gents make 1/2 right face turn in reverse direction, moving CW on outside of set while ladies continue to travel CCW in single file. At the first call of "Detour" all reverse directions, gents moving CCW and ladies CW. At second call of "Detour" all reverse directions again, gents moving CW and ladies CCW. On meeting second time partners swing briefly, then all swing corners to acquire a new partner. Do not promenade to home position but repeat figure from present position.)

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

Dosado your corner, then go home and swing your own
Just swing a long, long time
Allemande left the corner and around the ring you go
Ya got a long, long time
Right hand swing your gal, go twice around her
Walk around your corner when you've found her
Go back and promenade your dear, and sweet-talk in her ear
It's been a long, long time


FIGURE   

Number one you promenade, now two wheel in behind
And then it's three...and...four
Back right out and join your hands, and make a great big ring
Four ladies chain...chain...chain
1 & 3 you right & left across the ring
The ladies star across and swing your man again
*Promenade and now's your chance, to whisper of romance
It's been a long, long time


(Repeat figure with couple #2 leading, followed by couples #3, #4, and #1
-- couples 2 & 4 doing the right & left thru, then

MIDDLE BREAK, then

Repeat figure with couple #3 leading, followed by couples #4, #1, and #2
-- couples 1 & 3 doing the right & left thru, then

Repeat figure with couple #4 leading, followed by couples #1, #2, and #3
-- couples 2 & 4 doing the right & left thru, then


CLOSER)

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Promenade your miss, and maybe steal a little kiss

*Promenade you two, why don't you pitch a little woo

*Promenade and it's no crime, to take her out to dine

Detour (There's A Muddy Road Ahead)
 
 

Headed down life's crooked road
Lots of things I never knowed
And because of me not knowin', I now pine
Trouble got in the trail
Spent the next five years in jail
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

When I got right to the place
Where it said "about-face"
I thought that all my worries were behind
But the farther I go
The more sorrow I know
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

When I got stuck in the mud
All my hopes dropped with a thud
I guess my heartstrings are made of twine
Got no willpower to get
From the hole that I'm in yet
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Detour - there's a muddy road ahead
Detour - paid no mind to what it said
Detour - oh, the bitter things I find!
Shoulda read that "Detour" sign!

Lyrics by Paul Westmoreland.
Recorded by Jimmy Walker with Paul Westmoreland and His Pecos River Boys; Spade Cooley; Elton Britt; Patti Page.

It's Been A Long, Long Time
 
 

Kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time
Haven't felt like this, my dear
Since I can't remember when
It's been a long, long time

You'll never know how many dreams
I've dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you
So kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time

Ah, kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long time
Haven't felt like this my dear
Since I can't remember when
It's been a long, long time

You'll never know how many dreams
I dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you
So kiss me once then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time
Long, long time

Composed by Jule Styne.
Lyrics by Sammy Cahn.
Recorded by Bing Crosby with Les Paul and Harry James.
